Best. Hosting Company. Ever.
With permission, I am posting the e-mail I just received from Annette at Hosting Matters. So please indulge me and let me tell her thank you for at least the 1000th time this year.

"If need be, we'll just keep raising it [the bandwidth] to cover the use and consider it our donation to the project and the charity.

Oh, and speaking as someone whose family has a history of breast cancer, whose grandmother died from breast cancer, and whose aunts have all been affected (one of whom is going in for a double mastectomy on Friday next): excellent choice of charity. That's my primary donation these days as well."
Hosting Matters, Inc.

What do you say? I am literally sitting here with tears welled up in my eyes, and thanks doesn't seem to be nearly enough. Get thee to Hosting Matters!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

I think, when I'm back to work, I'll be signing on with Hosting Matters

Hey Robyn, how 'bout a mailto: so we can send her our thanks as well?

I have to also commend you on the way you have taken a little comment made somewhat in jest and have really, really run with it. The company I work for is real big on collecting money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Next time you do this, give me some advance warning and I'll gladly donate some server space and bandwidth to those who don't have their own (or are on a limited bandwidth budget) so they can submit pics as well.

Once again, good job to you, Robyn, and to all those who contributed money and boobies!

Great idea and charity! I got here through a link at kd's site and just wanted to say good luck. :)

Hosting Matters is a wonderful company, I've been with them for a while.

Bill, I passed along your comment to Annette. I know she's swamped with HM-related stuff so I didn't want to pass out her address publicly with all the traffic we're getting right now. But I'll happily forward any message anyone would like to leave her.

That's not the first time I've heard wonderful things about Hosting Matters. Bravo for helping out. I can't believe you got THAT much traffic. How cool!

I haven't been on a Computer since Friday (thursday your time) and I am amazed about where this has gone. Good on you all.
