For $120/year versus Newsguy's $25/year (Basic level; $70/year for
'Extra' level, including personal website, mailbox, binary-newsgroups
archive, article-search feature, and I forget what else:-) they'd better
provide *outstanding* service... given that Newsguy's service is more
or less OK.  I can buy 2 or 3 Python books a year with the savings:-).
