The hosting company that I use, sent me an e-mail this evening
offering a free upgrade to their new service plan. The costs are the
same but the benefits are greater. First, the new plan will be
faster. The hardware is newer and faster, the software is newer and

Apache 1.3. Second, I get more bandwidth per month and cheaper
additional bandwidth. Finally, I get more storage space.
The only downside is that I have to move from the trusty server that I
have used since I signed up with this provider. My ip address
will change sometime in the coming week and my web-site will be
unreachable while the DNS changes propogate. Anywhere from 12 to 24
