Stuff happens.  But it pretty much sucks that they're only giving a week's
notice that they're going down.

I had an ISP in 1995 who simply quit billing for two months. Although I
was a sucker and sent them my monthly fee whether they wanted it or not,
one day I simply couldn't connect anymore. It wasn't a pain to me, as I
was just learning about this "stuff" and I had nothing of importance on
the server. I was forced to find a viable ISP. The defunct ISP's  major
creditor was Sun, I think.
I miss my old shell account. It's more fun to legally monkey with
someone elses computer than your own :-(
