Where Did The Images On My Blog Go?

One of the great things about Blogger is that they provide their service completely “Free of Charge”. However, one drawback is that I am not able to post pictures - for that I have to upgrade to Blog*Spot Plus. One way to get over this is to host your images somewhere else and link to the images from your blog. I have tried out a few free hosts before settling on Angelfire, which provides 20MB of disk space and 1 GB bandwidth.
Well, I just opened my blog and noticed that all the images on my blog were not visible. Going to the Angelfire site I received this warning: The page you are attempting to access has been removed because it violated Angelfire's Term of Service. I just realised my mistake: uploading the Michael Hung video file and linking to it from my blog. That's one of the limitations of a free host and I am seriously considering getting my own domain name and a host with generous bandwidth allocation. Regarding, web site hosts, I had some pretty bad experiences in the past. They would be really “customer friendly” before you host with them - “we got this special price for you”, “we have over 10 years experience in hosting” and then can’t even get a proper response from them when you finally choose them and you have some problems. I would love to hear your opinion on the web hosting services here.
