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|
|On Self-Reliance: There is no reason why you should be bored when you can be otherwise. But if you find yourself sitting in the hedgerow with nothing but weeds, there is no reason for shutting your eyes and seeing nothing, instead of finding what beauty you may in the weeds. To put it cynically, life is too short to waste it in drawing blanks. Therefore, it is up to you to find as many pictures to put on your blank pages as possible.|
