I'm losing my webspace...

What would you call a company that promised you unlimited webspace for free?

Deluded?

Naive?

Insane?

Yes, I knew it was too good to last, and I had actually been waiting for the shoe to drop. It's been four years since the air as burst from the high-tech bubble, and most everyone associated with vaious dot-com debacles have moved on to training their Indian replacements, but Spaceports still struggled on trying to make money hosting free websites by extorting cash from its owners, lest they be faced with sites that didn't load unless visitors downloaded 20 pieces of IE destroying spyware.

Well, they are trying to go legit. But that means charging. So that means I'm leaving.
I'd like to download my proto-weblog, but I can't log in to their CGI-server, which houses it due to their segregation of cgi from the general webspace. Which means unless I can log in by New Year's Eve, that log disappears.
