LOL I was thinking that too, I found however some nice archives such as ftp.worldofspectrum.org/pub/sinclair/magazines that save some work

comment How do you deal with over-the-head APIs/technology
if the initial project planning starts, as indicated in the question, it means that the go for the project has already been given thus it has ALREADY been sold to the customer. So... if there is no "prototyping" and that costs in hours is taken into this WBS then there is no prototpying in place. Ideally you would want this to take place before even selling the solution. So before one or more projects role out of it. So long before that project you want to put "prototyping" as part of the hours needed and some evaluation. This is hard with most customers since they want a solution.

Even if your production site is `a wiki with some custom development´ on a $10 p month dreamhost shared you can sell it after some time for $25.000 e.g. flippa.com/auctions/94049/… so... it really depends on what your requirements are. For site flipping these kind of sites shared is ideal to dump a lot of domains on.

@JoshK, yeah thats the disadvantage of shared, i put it under #4. i was e.g. thinking of dreamhost and mediatemple: shell access is there but ofcourse running tomcat etc requires vps. working around it... yes could spend TIME on that but i think most would go then to vps or dedicated. If your DEVELOPMENT is `doing php around wordpress´ ... shared is good enough for most simple sites.
