Imminent Improvement via Comcast

The "imminent improvement via Comcast" is the increase in potential size to my web site:
This increase in size is being gifted to Comcast customers by Comcast.  For my web site, I use the Free web site space that is provided to Comcast users.  This free space has a maximum size of 25MB.  I have maxed out the 25MB for my web site.  So, when I add a work to my portfolio (http://home.comcast.net/~galentripp/PipPhotoPage.html), I have to remove some other part of my web site.

This is "soon" to change.  It seem that on Sept. 27, Comcast announced that they will "upgrade" the on-line storage space to provide 40 times more space per user.  This means that my web site will no longer be full at 25MB,  but that I will have up to a Gigabyte to play with!

On the down side, Comcast is being very cagey about when this "upgrade" is to happen.  "Soon" is all they will say about the dates involved.  In the meantime, I have a number of works waiting to go up to my "Gallery in Seven Fits" (http://home.comcast.net/~galentripp/PipPhotoPage_7.html) that I can't put up because I can't bare to lose other parts of my web site.  When this "upgrade" does happen, there are obscure parts of my web site that I will restore.  The most egregious self-inflicted damage to my web site was done to Galen's Monster photo page.  Take a look at this sad, sorry butcher job that I did to the quality of these photos, and tell me that it can't be fixed:
