New Website Blues

After about six years of trying to get my website going, I finally came up with a site that actually worked, was uncomplicated, and could be put up without too much trouble. My end of the planning finally finished.

And then comes Geocities.

I've used Geocities since I was in eigth grade and rarely had too many problems with it. Comes time to finally put my website up and I'm running into some really annoying issues.

First, I barely have any traffic at all and my bandwidth is exceeded. Second, once I actually upload it, I am nearly to capacity for storage space. I only have 500 kb left out of 15 mb. Third, (although this is not technically a problem with Geocities) my URL redirect is now putting spyware on people's computers, namely my own (DO NOT GO TO HTTP://ABADOSS.CJB.NET RIGHT NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT SPYWARE ON YOUR COMPUTER!!!).

So, what I'm hoping to do is to make use of the server space available to students here. There's no reason it shouldn't hold enough for my site. Then, I'm going to find a URL redirect that WON'T put spyware on unsuspecting computers. If I'm not able to find a decent one, I may either just have to live with an annoying URL or invest in an actual domain name (assuming I can afford it, which is probably not going to happen).

Anyway, I have a website now. It looks nice. I'm proud of it, but I'm annoyed at Geocities and cjb.net for giving me the shaft... well, maybe not that harsh, but just for disappointing me.

Current Mood: annoyed annoyed
Current Music: "..." -Soundtrack to Firefly... (really awesome show!)
