As I expected, this happened randomly, months after I warned him that Dreamhost forced us to move to a private server. Unfortunately it happened just after we got this shiny new migration; I'd like to apologize to Toawa and yoga for taking up their time last month.
I haven't got any "move off my server" notice yet, but I have a feeling that the bill was quite high and my magical bill evasion technique blackmail will only work once. Needless to say the ad banner money, totaling $200, will be sent to him.
Further bulletins as events warrant.
