Thank You, BackInSF.com

This site currently attracts about 1000 visitors per day, a fact which totally boggles my mind. The size of the site and the bandwidth (amount of data transferred) are greatly in excess of the normal limit imposed on subscribers. I am grateful to my server,
gay owned and operated BackInSF.com (aka: C N Internet Sales) for their generosity in absorbing the additional fees which would normally be charged for my site's activity.
