Ok, you guys have got me curious now, but I'm stuffed if I can find
anything relevant to them online. Is there a data cap? (Not that I
would use that much, but it's nice to know). just has a page saying "coming soon" that was last-modified
in March 2002, neither exists as a, seems to be
some other training place altogether (last modified April, and who would
trust an ISP that uses frontpage for their website??!) and after some
exhaustive google searching I found which is also horribly
outdated and their listed services seem to be only dial-up a/c.

Are they too exclusive for the likes of me? Can someone please tell
me the password??!

Alternatively, anyone good any recommendations for some cheap-ish
web hosting, just for some personal pages (will need some scripting
ability)? I remember there was some talk a while back about setting up
a server or some space for personal use by wlug members, although nothing
seemed to come from that... I wouldn't mind contributing.

Thanks all,
John McPherson
