I'm still paying $46.95/mo for Omsoft, but currently you can sign up
for $34.95. Why don't I switch? I don't want the outage while I cancel
and sign up agan.
They're a good service - it changes my IP a few times a day, but SSH
sessions generally last a long time. The most annoying thing about
them is their transparent web proxy.
Oh, and my typical download rate is 30kilobytes/sec.
In the LUGOD FAQ, we recommend Omsoft, and that recommendation is
probably still justified.
I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 08/18/2004. If you use GPG *please* see me about
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
