GreenNet is not a radical provider, it is an "ethical" provider, so it would be really nice to
find a solution within out own political horizon.  i think another aspect to consider whether the
provider of choice has a history of continuity and whether we can find somebody who have
experience with them.

if nobody has the time to write to the providers that ana posted i can take on the responsibility
of gathering the necessary information from them.  i can say i can try to come back with the info
in 2 weeks' time.
