I can probably not do it for free, but I've got everyone at work using 
Pidgin, and I may still be able to offer something on the order of a P4 
3.0 for the original quote that I gave you guys back whenever that was. 
  Colocation is a little bit of a different story, but a concrete 
proposal I can take to my boss would help and I can tell you how much we 
can do it for.
