Hey, the wankers finally got back to me

And this is what they had to say:
Domain:two-lights.net

I regret to inform you that we have suspended the above domain with
immediate effect. At present, its operation is in breach of our terms and
conditions.

A member of our abuse team will contact you as soon as possible and explain
the reasons for suspending the domain. Wherever we can, we will work with
you to ensure that we can re-instate the domain straight away.

Although our Technical Support and Account Management Teams are aware of the
status of your domain, they will not be able to help until our abuse team
has resolved the matter.

Now, if this cheap-ass place is anything like the last cheap-ass place I went with, they're going to get mad at me for either taking up too much server space or taking up too much bandwidth... even though their site says that both are unlimited.

While I wait for these asshats to deign to get back to me... who all do you guys go through for your webhosts? Arnise mentioned hostdime, and I know about powweb... anyone else?

And on a happier note... oh my God aren't these kittens the most adorable things you have ever ever seen??

From Right-Thinking

It's Just A Movie

According to Drudge, Al Gore is going to take advantage of the new global warming disaster movie The Day After Tomorrow to promote his radical environmentalist loony agenda.
VARIETY reporter Gabriel Snyder is planning to quote Gore: "THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW presents us with a great opportunity to talk about the scientific realities of climate change. Millions of people will be coming out of theaters on Memorial Day weekend asking the question, 'Could this really happen?' I think we need to answer that question."

This is eerily familiar to a Gore quote from 1996. "Independence Day presents us with a great opportunity to talk about the scientific realities of an attack by a massive swarm of super-advanced alien beings who wish to enslave the world. Millions of people will be coming out of theaters this weekend asking the question, 'Could this really happen?' I think we need to answer that question."

And, oddly enough, it is also remarkably similar to another Gore quote, this one from 1998. "Armageddon presents us with a great opportunity to talk about the scientific realities of a giant, life-destroying asteroid on a collision course with Earth. Millions of people will be coming out of theaters this weekend asking the question, 'Could this really happen?' I think we need to answer that question."

And, believe it or not, Gore made an astonishingly familiar comment just a few months ago. "Dawn of the Dead presents us with a great opportunity to talk about the scientific realities of the dead rising up from their graves, charging all over the Earth, trying to eat everyone's brains and create more zombies. Millions of people will be coming out of theaters this weekend asking the question, 'Could this really happen?' I think we need to answer that question."

I think Al needs to watch a few less movies.

Kerry quote of the week

"It appears, as they peel away the weapons of mass destruction issue, and --we may yet find them, Chris. Look, I want to make it clear: Who knows if a month from now, two months from now, you find some weapons. You may. But you certainly didn't find them where they said they were, and you certainly didn't find them in the quantities that they said they were. And they weren't found, and I have talked to some soldiers who have come back who trained against the potential of artillery delivery, because artillery was the way they had previously delivered and it was the only way they knew they could deliver. Now we found nothing that is evidence of that kind of delivery, so the fact is that as you peel it away I think it comes down to this larger ideological and neocon concept of fundamental change in the region and who knows whether there are other motives with respect to Saddam Hussein, but they did it because they thought they could, and because they misjudged exactly what the reaction would be and what they could get away with."
