Just today I received this distressing email:

You read that right… even after I pre-paid 2 years of web hosting service, BlueHost doesn’t just turn off access to my blog, they also want to delete my years of blog posts. In all my years of paying for web services, I’ve never come across an online business this cold-hearted.
With the help of my friend Peter, we migrated this blog over to MT in about 3hrs… that’s amazingly quick, even with DNS propagation. With Grid-Service (GS) at MediaTemple, we get faster pageloads with greater CPU resources for this relatively intense blogger.
Once again, thank you Lucian and Peter!
The difference you’ve made for me, will be a difference I reflect back into the world.
