I almost forgot replying. And i guess if i dont reply noone will feel
authorative and reply anytime soon ...

there are only 2 options noone had a argument against.
OVH and vlc had arguments in public,
hetzner (virus issue & 50euro/mo, also public)
kierans box is too weak/old to host all our services but works fine for trac atm

against nexcess / futurehosting.com i receved a private argument from
a rtmpdump developer, as they are US based and hosting rtmpdump in the
US is expected by them to be problematic.

That leaves DreamHack and the Telepoint/MediaHub offer.
I thus accept these 2 offers

Thanks alot !
