Why do you no longer offer free shells?
I no longer offer free shells because far too many people abused the service. Since asking for a one time fee, I have only had one user that has tried malicious activity. It works out for you too; less downtime and better latency.
If you pay $5, I will give you a shell account. These accounts have resonable space limitations and allow background processes. I will also install just about any package in the Debian repos for you to use.
For some ideas of what you can do with a shell, see:

* This is UNIX specific term; this does not mean you can only stay logged in for 500 minutes or that your programs only run for 500 minutes. This should not interfer with your daily usage; if it does it can be changed on a per-user basis.
** Your processes will have a lower priority than system processes. Users of the trusted group have a better nice value than you. Be cool and you might make it in that group.
