Hi list,

I just wanted to say that I am happily running my python webapps at 
textdrive.com.  They are big fans of dynamic languages and support them.

I have heard many good things from many people about webfaction, but choice is 
good, so textdrive.com is worth checking out too.

Anyway, hope this helps.
