[erlang-questions] Erlang in the clouds

I've been using Slicehost for about a year and a half for my Erlang
projects. For a long time the I Play WoW Facebook app was on 5x256m
slices using CouchDB/Memcached/MySQL. I have to say that I'm really
happy with them because of the price as well as the service and
support. I've still got 5 projects spread across 3x256m slices.

I'm currently working on another application project on 2x256m slices
using mochiweb and emongo and it works great. For this one I'm using
Fedora 11 and building my own otp/erlang package, installing modules
from source from GitHub and using the x86_64 mongodb tgz package.

I've got the install commands used to get the environments up and
running if you are interested.
