I thought people might be interested in this.  Note that this happened
"just like that": absolutely no notification.  I was told they were
shutting down the free e-mail, but no-one said anything about the
web-hosting.  Fortunately, I have a back-up hosting service.  Is it
me, or is this just one more instance of "Internet.Com, Inc" being as
dumb as a sack of bricks?  LinuxToday isn't what it was, for example.
