Gary North broke my site! :-) : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

So I guess I've hit the big time. My HTML version of the Senate Y2K report was linked by Gary North's site. The transfer limit from my ISP was hit about 8 hours later!

Probably a coincidence, but Gary linked directly to the documents, not to my home page. It contains a link back to Gary's site, but also the phrase "not to be taken too seriously"....

Anyway, I've called the ISP and upped my quota to 400 Meg a day. This will cost me $150/mo though, so I'm only doing it for a month. If anyone would like to publish copies of the Senate documents, or my own Y2K document, I'd appreciate it.

Mike: What software did you use to do the conversion? You and it did a great job.

What kind of ISP do you have that charges such a high rate. There are oodles out there that will give you a package for $30 to $50 per month with no bandwidth restriction.

My husband's business hosts domains on web servers for $24.95 that have 300mb space, unlimited www traffic, 3gig FTP traffic/mo., lots of multiple email options, lots of server/programming options, custom software available, yada yada yada. If you want that Y2K report to stay up and you don't want to pay an arm, a leg and it sounds like part of something else too, feel welcome to email him at for more info. Sorry, hate to put something here like an ad, but also hate to see anybody paying such an ungodly amount... -- PJ

Michael, I agree, you're being ripped off! Let us know what city you're in and I'm sure someone here can find you a much better deal. <:)=
