To most people, changing your email address is no big deal.
To us though, it's our lifeline to civilization and how we
keep in touch with everything off-Ice. Family, Friends,
Business, etc. It's pretty important. For years many years

and since we started it so long ago in the days when email was
fairly new, there was a charge attached to maintaining it.
Finally, we've said enough is enough and are going to stop
forking out money so we can keep someone in Silicon Valley
outfitted in new sports cars every year. Our new choice will
probably be either Yahoo or GMail (yes, both are owned by folks
in Silicon Valley driving sports cars), but both services are
free and it won't be quite as painful to our bank account.
After we decide which to choose, the hard part begins...letting
everyone we correspond with know our new address...changing
forms, calling people etc. I don't even want to think about
