I think this would only affect John Cassidy, Chi Wong, and Keith Bidne...but I 
am also "testing" my new email-forwarding setup (at least it's not the whole 

Here's the deal, I moved out of the dialup area served by srv.net two years 
ago, but they never checked hosted space (no-extra-fee limited to 5 MB) so I 
was reasonably happy to keep paying $10/month for the 27MB or so of pictures 
and stuff I had up, along with $20/month for new-local-area dialup (also 
limited to 5MB) plus of course $80-90/month for Digital OneRate and $40/month 
for local dialtone - but hey, I don't have cable and I do travel a bit.

Cut to the chase, last month I got an email signifying that srv.net was finally 
checking disk quotas (I had >20MB up since late 1996 without ever being charged 
because that wasn't in the original subscriber agreement) and would like 
$40/month for my current disk usage. Nuh-uh, they aren't even going to get my 
$10/month any more. We will see how the service cessation goes, I have another 
email account there that I am still checking for a ZDNet newsletter two years 
after I stopped working for the company (CEO's personal account spawned 

But if you have pictures under my "other people's Audis" links page, please be 
sure to make yourself a copy soon. I do have a backup of the site, and it will 
be up again sometime, probably either on a friend's cable-modem Linux box or my 
own as I close in on a house purchase. No quality-of-service or 
service-level-agreements expressed or implied...:)

Sorry for the WOB,
