A Month On

I am waiting.  It has been a month and I am still waiting.  On Thursday, September 27, 2007 Comcast sent me an email that announced that they are soon "upgrading the Personal Web Pages product" to "automatically" increase the maximum size of my web page (http://home.comcast.net/~galentripp/pip.html) from 25 MB to 1GB.  That is an increase of 40X.  The date set for this automatic increase is "soon".  I wait...

See, here's the deal:  I have maxed out my web page.  I have used the full 25MB.  I have (in mind) a lot of stuff that I want to do, stuff to add.  This offer of 40 times more space made me drool. I had been contemplating moving my web site to a paid provider to get some extra space.  And Lo! and Behold! Comcast offers to give me what I need FOR FREE!

But it has been a month and "soon" is the only date that I have been given.  I check on Comcast daily.  I still have my little 25MB that took me two years to fill.  I have big plans.  When I get the 1GB, I will announce how I am using it here.
