captain beefheart electricity - captain beefheart waiting for contributions

or else...
i want this site to be independent, as well as free for everyone. i promise, i won't fall into love with e-shops sponsoring me, so that's the best thing, but...: the firms exploiting the internet are always seeking for ways to cash in. providers of 'free' web space - my favourite place in cyberverse - suddenly added ads, reduced the allowed size or needed to get paid (not to mention similar 'technical problems' of all kinds, each time forcing me to change hundreds of pages - and upload them all again, too). what could i do? it was in perfect harmony with their one-direction contracts....
as you might understand, after renewing my electricity síx times in síx years i'm quite sick of this continuing circus. so i have decided to stop with that waste of time and accept the fact that it is impossible to run this site without paying for services such as enough web space and sufficient bandwidth. and although my current host (till now) isn't as aggressive as other ones, i had to make some financial arrangements on behalf of you....
so, if you like what i do:

[about me and so:]

originally started as an old-fashioned newsletter in august 1996
began lightning the cyberspace on 6 november 1997
which makes it the oldest active beefheart site
and also provides e-news mailings for internóts
(submit such friends!)

no doubt you wonder: who's the lunatic who tries to stay this impossible way?
well, i admit i'm theo tieman and yes, of course i'm dutch!

if you want to encourage me
or complain about the spilling of cyberspace
just drop me an e-mail....
