  • I had moved my personal wiki off them a few months ago, with the intention of moving everything off, but hasn't gotten to the rest yet. 15:37:02
  • This will be the push I need. Probably wont get to it until the weekend though. Right now my stuff on four different host companies. 15:38:48
  • This one is currently the most expensive of the four, and the least used. Consolidation to three will be good. Eventually to one hopefully. 15:39:54
  • But goal for this weekend is to just kill this 1 and get down to paying 3 companies instead of 4 & to get this part of site working again. 15:41:38
