Hi Dean.

I'm sorry if some of my questions have been answered before. I've missed a 
few messages over the last few months.

Is this affecting performance or functioning of the lists? When you say 
"unrelated services", are you referring to the browser archive?

If we move from this box, where will we keep the browser archive?

Is everyone OK with this company? What's the word on the "street" about them?

I think we have enough money to cover it.
