I know you do this out of love, sorry if my tongue-in-cheek comment about non-paying customers was somehow understood to mean you HAD paying customers.
I also appreciate that you do not have ads on your site, even though I understand ads are what permit a number of otherwise free sites I use regularly to operate.
Same thing here with my manuals pages, free and ads free, even though I use a hosting service for convenience. I was self-hosted at the beginning, but it turns out that aside from the occasional hassle, it's generally much less work and worry for me to use an outside host, and when hosting large manuals, an ISP with big fat pipes is a lot better than a residential cable account, let alone DSL.
by the way, check my manuals at: http://www.ko4bb.com/cgi-bin/manuals.pl
