Roxette.org in danger?


Daniel Zimmerman, the administrator of roxette.org website and the listmaster of the Roxette Mailing List, sent an alarming message to the list. Having a site online can be expensive, and it seems roxette.org's costs are rising. Dan says he now has four choices:


1. I can continue to run roxette.org out of my own pocket, and pay ridiculous amounts of money.

2. I can shut roxette.org down, including all mailing lists and web sites.

3. I can collect money from individuals who host their websites on roxette.org [to defray costs].

4. If I'm incredibly lucky, somebody…has connections with a colocation provider and can get me a good deal (all that's required is space for one minitower).

Add your comments to this article if you have any ideas. There are dozens of sites hosted at roxette.org and if it goes offline, so will all of those sites.
