Common sense isn't.
This site moved from @home.com. At the time of the move it was not known, although it was probably predictable, that At-Home would go bust. The couple sites I referred to went down with the ship, but they are still around in places. I kept a copy of one here for a general comment. My old at-home down time data is archived here, and more recent at-home data until the end is here. If these initial results by Comcast are any indication, they are well on the way towards establishing a similar, poor record.
The site previously moved from ispchannel.com when @home took over local cable modem service.
Unfortunately, for personal pages @home did not offer Server Side Include, cgi, or much of anything server-side. Dreamhost does offer all these things and more, for a fee. But, since I have another site hosted there, I get this one at bargain basement cost, and I won't have to move until I want to (assuming Dreamhost stays around). Also, even if I do move, I won't have to break links because the domain name can stay the same and transfer too.

|Quote of the moment|
|I am particularly interested in the indications that the people seem to understand and approve the necessity of pursuing the course that will prevent a further effort on the part of the German peoples to continue the struggle for world domination, even though they are thoroughly beaten in this war.|
|~ Franklin D. Roosevelt (18821945), U.S. president. Letter, October 2, 1942, to George H. Gallup. The Roosevelt Letters, vol. 3, pp. 438-439, ed. Elliott Roosevelt, George G. Harrup & Co., Ltd. (1952). |
Gallup had sent the results of a recent Gallup Poll to the President, which prompted his comments about public opinion concerning a possibly resurgent Germany. FDR was constantly concerned over public opinion and read and sometimes commissioned surveys to get public responses on important issues. He did this regularly with the Princeton University polling people headed by Hadley Cantril. This letter set forth opinions about Germany which would occupy the attention of the Big Three at Yalta. FDRs antagonism and suspicion of Germany stems from early visits there and from the time he spent in school in Germany, where in the 19th century he saw manifestations of expansionism and racial superiority as the school curriculum bred super-nationalism and contempt for other nationalities. ~
