    Moving to a new hosting provider

    I pay annually for hosting. My host, which is already quite expensive, has decided to charge for every cpanel used for each account. It used to be $432 a year, I've just gotten an invoice for $732!! They do not pro rate so I've ridden it out to the end of my service, which is this month (the...

    Bhuz is dead? Are we the last survivor?

    So, curious how bhuz is faring in the dearth of forums, I just popped over to see where they are at and bhuz is no longer. This is not new news to those of you who also participated there... but I am a little shocked to be honest. Jennifer James created Bhuz (late '90's?) and operated it for...
