You're lucky - I'm still trying to work out how to scrounge up funding to finish my degree.

The only real reason for having BioPHP.org is merely consistency with the other BioXXX projects (which are all BioXXX.org). Peer pressure - "Everybody's doin' it. You gotta have a .org if you wanna be COOL....". Well, that and drink more beer, if my television is to be believed... If we can get bioinformatics.org to do DNS that'll be great - if not, DSL is said to be available to my area some time in September, and I intend to move over to Business-class DSL with 2 IP addresses (off of the business class cable-modem which is my only option right now), so in a pinch I could do the hosting myself at that point. I can contact the guys at bioinformatics.org to coordinate something - if nothing else I could probably at least provide some simplistic secondary DNS or something.
