End of the free ride

All good things must come to an end, including my 3 years of free hosting with 1&1. I’ve decided to stick with them and get one of their hosting plans though not so much because they had the best price or the most options (for example, no WebDAV, which would have been nice) but mostly because I’m just too lazy to transfer my domain registrations and data to another provider. I’d be interested to know how many other beneficiaries of their crazy 3 year promotion actually stuck around as well, and how long they have to keep a paying plan for 1&1 to not have lost money on the deal. So now that I’ve got tons more storage and bandwidth, and now that I’m actually paying for it, I figure I should put it to good use and maybe dust this thing off a little bit and actually post more than once every 3 months or so.
