Ryan purchased a big hosting package for a large project that got cancelled. Rather than let the space sit idle, he wrote to me with an offer to subdivide it and host people's programming-related sites for free. This is his way to "give back" he tells me. Yep, it has to be programming-related. And you'll be asked to have a banner but nothing more.
If you're interested, look for "Ryan's Freebie" on the ISP listing page. His and all other free ISPs are marked with a red "Free!".
