My favorite gun blogger, James R. Rummel, just wrote to tell me that his blog "Hell in a Handbasket" is history.
He says he originally signed up for an "unlimited" blog with his hosting service, but recently the hosting service shut him down for TOS violations, to wit too much traffic. Apparently he was doing the majority of the traffic on the server and it was negatively affecting all the other users.
They offered to set him up with a dedicated server for something like $150/month but he's not willing to pay that much for a hobby, or at least this particular hobby. (You can buy a lot of ammunition for $150/month, you know. Gotta prioritize things.)
So anyway, one more hole in my daily blog visiting cycle. I'll miss him; I learned a lot about guns from him over the years.

Yeah, and I think he knows that. He was originally on Blogspot and he could go back there again if he wanted. He just wants to stop.
I respect him enough not to badger him for it. I remember when I stopped USS Clueless, the way a lot of people tried to make me keep going. I don't want to do that to him.

Well, that explains the error page I have been getting. That sucks.
