This must have been the same story that I read about them else where. I 
guess they have been OK since, but definitely goes not inspire trust or

Thanks Daniel.

Thanks everybody for your suggestions. I think I won't be using 
vpsville, sadly.

I did come across another host http://servarica.com.
Starting at $9CAD, located in Montreal, run with Xen (per Khalid's 
advice), review seem to be positive:

Although not plentiful. Anyone ever hear of these guys?
