I don't know whether it's slow response on the part of the "service-free
ISP" or slow DNS propagation, but as of right now Squeak.org still comes up
with the "bandwidth exceeded" page via Earthlink.  It's not my local cache,
and Earthlink is usually very good with updates, but I'll try some of my
other ISPs if the problem persists.

No more frustrating times with Global Internet Solutions. This time it is
totally under our control.
