I stated years ago that the love affair with RW would end. RW would either start charging a fee for web sites or placed ads on web sites.
I was 100% correct, as usual. There are two good things that came out of the divorce:

One- RW no longer is a hammer that can used against LCs when they have a disagreement with a SC or between the SC and the AB.
Remember Tim Stowell vs. the AB fiasco? In that case Tim would have prevailed if RW had not entered the fight between the two giants.
RW sided with the AB and ripped the floor out from under Tim.

Two- RW can now offer web space for independent LCs. USGenWeb should not take this threat lightly. RW could become a serious rival of USGenWeb
 by using independent LCs. See this site as an example: Troup Co.

The bad thing is that SCs now have control over the web sites directly. They own the server space and can kick LCs out immediately with or without reason.

Life is so grand, I'm gong to the take out place for Chinese food.

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple eater to me

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me (One eye?)

Well he came down to earth and he lit in a tree
I said Mr. Purple People Eater, don't eat me
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
I wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me (One horn?)

I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line
He said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
(We wear short shorts)
Flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
He started to rock, really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
Sing a boop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
I like short shorts
Flyin' little people eater
Sure looks strange to me

And then he went on his way, and then what do ya know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead
Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in his head

Tequila!
