Subject: Your Data Transfer Status
Dear GeoCities Member,
Congratulations, http://www.geocities.com/maineswedishcolony seems to
be very popular and has been receiving a large amount of traffic.
Our records indicate that you're using more than the allotted amount
of data transfer we provide for a free web site, which is 3 gigabytes
per month (measured on an hourly basis). That means that during the
past few days we had to temporarily turn your site off to keep the
bandwidth within this limit.

It never crossed my mind that the site would get turned off because of too
I have removed the big "guide.pdf" file (this file allows you to view and
print a copy of the original printed guide.) I may also need to move the
online guide to another Geocities "site,"
Does anyone know of a local internet service provider that would host our
site with out charge?
