Just got a very disturbing letter in the mail today. You may or may not see me
on the CHAT line tomorrow. Two months ago I wrote off to my internet provider that
the BB and home page has taken on a life of its’ own. We get between 600 and 2000
hits a day. I spend about 3 hours a day reading the mail and answering posts and
e-mails. We never anticipated this response and so my internet bill became quite
large. I asked my provider to sponsor the home page and my internet time. I received
an answer back via e-mail that they would do so. I went off fat dumb and happy.
Well now I am fat smarter and aggrevated. Seems my provider has no record of their
e-mail response (I do in my e-mail folders) but they cannot track down which office
sent the e-mail. Bottom line is I am being shut down tomorrow sometime unless they
can track down which office said would provide corporate sponsorship. I did not mind
paying for my internet service when it was just for me but my total time on the internet
is for the foundation and the BB. That I cannot afford. If my provider shuts me down
are there any companies out there who will sponsor the NGDF Page? Archie and Annette
provide this service for free and will continue to do so. If I go offline the BB and
home page stays. Just I will be gone. I am in contact with the corporate offices of
my provider to see what the heck is going on. I will keep you posted (or maybe not).

I think you have a bum provider! You shouldn’t have to pay much more than $15 per month now for unlimited access. Even AOL now has gone to $20 per month unlimited, no more hourly! Shop around. Hope to heck we see you on the chat, if there is anything I can do, email or call me.
ps There was a notice in the mail today to pick up at the PO.AnonymousDecember 10, 1996 at 6:31 pmPost count: 93172
Ditto what Bruce said! Even here in Idaho, I can get 150 hours for $19.95 a month. That’s five hours a day! Also, I will help if you need it!
