[Dirvish] Contribution

Hi All,

Thank you all for the positive feedback!
I was already hoping that all simply works and therefore all is
quiet as it is...

Yes, any kind of hosting is also possible here. I have for sure enough
serverspace. also domain reg is only a question of minutes...
(I think I have several 100G currently unused...)

I will take the oportunity of the new clean install I have ahead
and review all the documentation I can find. Possibly collecting
all that together and offering in several languages might be
just an idea...

All the best and kind greetings from Vienna/Austria,

Christian Kranich
