Got this in an email today from email@example.com
In an effort to provide better service to all of our customers, That Hosting Company, Inc., has merged our web hosting services with another web hosting company.
This transition period will begin Sunday @ 8:00am PST, March 10th, 2002. And will require approximately 5 days to complete. During this transition period you may experience unexpected downtimes. Please note that we are working to keep things running as smooth as possible, however, some downtime will be unavoidable during this transition phase.
As compensation for the recent events which caused our customers to be offline, we are happy to offer all of our customers a certificate for an additional hosting account free of charge, which you may use to host another website.
The bolding is mine. What makes them think that I would jump at having another site hosted by these chuckleheads! I will have to see if service improves after this merger before I trust them with such things as valuable as say this blog.
Fairness disclaimer: The shoddy service from these guys is probably because they got in over their heads capacity-wise and this will be the best thing for us and them.
