    Typo, the security/hardening is available for $20, not $30. Sorry.

    BTW all - we used this service 6 months ago.

    I recommend it STRONGLY to anyone who wants to get a security jumpstart with a new dedicated server.

    Sure, we could have installed alot of the stuff ourselves - and have done so in the past.

    But what great bang-for-the-buck we got by having get it all done quickly and professionally while we dealt with other aspects of our operation.

    Here's the bottom line: I'd hire Geoff, in a heartbeat if we had to do it again.
