If you really provision new servers that often, that you don't have time to reboot your chef-server, then have as many chef-servers as you need. I don't see why the preferred solution would be to exclusively use chef-solo. If you have some reason to prefer that approach, please do tell.
chef-server != SPOF
Are you going to include specs (and tests) in all the updates to old screencasts? That would be a huge incentive to me to subscribe.
(And thanks for not using only PayPal. Limiting payment to PayPal would be a big *dis*incentive to me.)
