  • Changing hosting providers

    I’ve been hosting this site on a Xen host in the UK for the past year – it was cheaper than running the server in-house, and the uplink bandwidth is certainly more than the 1 Mbit/s that my home ADSL is capable of.  However, in the past 6 months or so, I’ve noticed a distinct […]

  • New tricks: Exchange “Send As”
