Good Linux Dedicated Server Provider

I need some assistance with a Dedicated Server provider.  I currently use Rackspace on the cloud.  The server works great, and the customer support is phenomenal, however, on the cloud, cron jobs are limited to 15 minutes which means that I have to break my long script into 10 pieces to get it to run completely...

I have tried SoftLayer and they have unlimited crons, but the customer servcie is very weak and they are hard to deal with.

So with that in mind, who do you use?  I need PHPmyAdmin, MySQL and cron jobs that dont cut off!

You should take a look at http://www.liquidweb.com/
I'm more then happy with everything there. If you want to go into details about their possibilities for cron jobs, you can chat with a 3rd level supporter 24/7/365.

Consider SliceHost.

Also, call ChiHost.com and speak to Nick Gilbert.  Tell him I sent you.  He may or may not be able to do everything you need, but he will be honest about it and he won't waste your time!
