Big Changes to JasonAntman.com

Well, I finally broke down and ordered Optimum Business. Come tomorrow, I’ll be moving from Verizon FiOS residential with a dynamic IP, much blocked (hence jantman.dyndns.org:10011) and 10Mbps down/2Mbps up to Optimum Business with 30 down/5 up, a block of 5 static IPs, and ...
