I can vouch for this team at Rackspace, they are really nice people.  If I actually qualified for this position (not a windows developer personally) and didn't already have an awesome job, I'd apply for it.

Also, in case anyone noticed, was down last night.  It should be up stable now. It has it's own dedicated box and is running a luvit server (able to handle about 4,000 requests per second).
