<DIV>They pay for some of the hosting, not all.</DIV> <DIV>The alternative was to continue paying 200$ every month with my own money <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

Hi there,On a bit of an OT; your Templar spell list on EQ2i is completely wrong. Looks like a Mystics spell list but I'm not sure.If you ever have hosting problems let me know - I can easily fix you up with something.
