The world is becoming increasingly passive-aggressive. After hosting my websites for nearly 15 years, my web host has discontinued all hosting packages that support multiple domains; to continue with them, I'd be forced to purchase an individual package for each domain I manage (about a dozen), which would be insanely costly. I asked them what incentive I had to stay with them; no answer. So, it looks as though I'll be going through the painfully tedious process of migrating to a new host over the next three weeks; please bear with me during any brief outages that may occur as a consequence.

Thank you so very much, Rodney. You've helped restore my faith in humanity.
