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 wonder whether mankind could not get along without all these names, which keep increasing every day, and hour, and moment; till at the last the very air will be full of them; and even in a great plain, men will be breathing each others breath, owing to the vast multitude of words they use, that consume all the air, just as lamp-burners do gas.|
|~ Herman Melville (18191891), U.S. author. Redburn (1849), ch. 13, The Writings of Herman Melville, vol. 4, eds. Harrison Hayford, Hershel Parker, and G. Thomas Tanselle (1969). |
