[Polarhome] ISP change

after two years heavy usage and lot of problems, polarhome.com finally
Now we have 5x higher speed and static IP address, that will qualify
polarhome.com to dalnet cybercafe program, improve response time and give
more table connection.
I must admit that there were intentions to create one parallel
"commercial" polarhome site, where users would have vhosts, possibility to
purchase space and other resources that they need, without php_safe and
denied mail(), domain hosting etc... for better price than somewhere else.
But I cancelled the whole project for now. It needs far more attention and
time that I can appreciate today. From other side the Swedish IT market is
so unstable, that I do not feel that I can take this risk and
Unfortunately, I am not convinced that "commercial" polarhome could
provide business continuity for customers/users... and to be jet another
non professional service provider... there is no sense. Everybody can
provide non professional service from home.
I think, and more than 50% of users voted, that it is a good idea... then
let wait until circumstances will be more beneficial and the market will
show is there a real needed for it.
Therefore... the old non commercial polarhome.com got the new ISP
connection. Hope that I made a good decision and all these 37.000
registered account holders will be more satisfied.
