I'm still getting the 'Error 503:Unable to load template file' message from Blogger. This has been a little over two weeks now. They say it's an intermittent problem with a server. Huh? Get it fixed already guys. There's no way I could justify going to Blogger Pro right now.

I really wish I could afford my own hosting (by which I mean my machine, running my choice of OS and software, from my house). If I were in the states I'd be looking at $80 or so a month for DSL, with a free router thrown in. Here in CR, the government telecoms monopoly charges $750 a month (!) for 256/128 DSL, plus you have to buy the Cisco router and the modem (another $1000). This is why the Movimiento Libertario, the Libertarian party here has the slogan 'donde hay monopolio, no hay libertad' (where there is monopoly, there is no freedom). $80 is what domestic 256K cable costs here (i.e. a non-routable internet connection so you can't act as a server). I might have to check out co-lo costs in the States.
