So the first e-mail was of course tremendously exciting and yet absurdly ill-timed. My renewal notice for barbelith.com arrived this morning, making it nearly two years since I coughed up $70 in a bedsit in Hampstead. Of course that also means that I have thirty days to find $70. Speaking of the barbelith.com, my first excess bandwidth e-mail came through today – which I believe is only going to charge me $4 for May. But I would place money on that number rising over the coming months. And the alternative? Upgrade to high volume or quick serve accounts at a price of up to $250 a month.
