Hi Richard,

You could run it on free.hands.com (where you already have an account),
which for the moment has PHP on it.  I now have that on a VM and would
at some point want to shift the PHP stuff onto a separate VM, so if we
do that it would be wise to come up with a URL that would survive being
shifted onto a new machine at some point.  That could of course be done
by having nginx on free proxy through to the new machine.

If it's more practical to do it elsewhere, that's great, but thought I'd
mention this option as it seems likely to be the least effort.

Cheers, Phil.

P.S. Alternatively, it looks like you've not logged in since 2003, so if
you don't need the account any more, I could remove it.
