Looking for a reliable host with Tomcat/Jetty and MySQL

I have use pair.com for all of my hosting need for the last 10+ years and have rarely had any problems. But one of the bad things about Pair is the lack of Java support on the shared hosted side. They offer Tomcat, Jetty, JBoss, etc on a dedicated server but that’s usually overkill (and overpriced) for some simple applications.

I have a little project that needs Tomcat or Jetty and MySQL and so am I looking for any help you can provide in finding a reliable host that has decent bandwidth, great uptime and Java/JSP support in a shared/virtual environment. Any suggestions? Please leave a comment or send me an email using the link on the right.

Coldplay on Austin City Limits

I just saw Coldplay on PBS’s Austin City Limits and they delivered an awesome show. Every since I found out about the taping via Coldplay’s mailing list, I had set every DVR in my house to take tape the show. Watching the hour-long concert in HD was awesome.

The show was very intimate and Chris Martin and gang did an impromptu tribute to Johnny Cash in the middle of the show. Then they brought out Michael Stipe (REM) as a special guest and they did 2 songs including REM’s Nightswimming, which Chris Martin called the greatest song ever written. He had some pretty funny banter through out the show. The funniest line was when he was introducing Michael Stipe – Chris said that they called Michael Bolton and he couldn’t make it and so they settled for Michael Stipe. It was funny – You had to be there.

The hour-long set was pretty standard with a mix of old and new with ‘Fix You’ closing out the set. Check out the ACL website for pictures and some behind-the-scene stuff including interviews.
