The problem with Upcoming was that they kept on de-activating account
and changing things without any warning.  This kept breaking the script
that updated the home page automatically. has a problem in that they want a fee to set up an account
($12/month fair enough, hosting/bandwidth costs money) but they don't
tell you this until you try to set it up!
