Yahoo Geocities have decided to make people pay to FTP updates to their sites. This means that my automatic updating of my web site no longer works. The alternative is to use the browser tools which are manual and slow. Therefore my Geocities site will no longer have current content. See My Real Site for the real stuff.
All the links on the Geocities site will eventually point to the real site. After a few months I will replace the Geocities content with automatic redirection to the real site.

I now have a mirror of this site at my local ISP. The only difference is that the fancy menu is not working there for some weird reason. Eventually this will be my only site and you can say bye-bye to the Geocities pop-up ads forever!

Geocities have decided to enforce an obscure limit on the free web pages - a site can deliver only 3 gigabytes per month (evaluated on an hourly basis, i.e. about 4.3 MB/hour). If a site goes past the hourly limit then it is disabled for the next hour. The limit looks large but it turns out that if someone browses through all of my Big Picture Gallery within an hour, my site is disabled!
The solution is to copy my site to my local ISP where I have some space available and change the Geocities pages to pick up images from there. This has been done for many of my pages- hopefully without breaking anything.
There have also been some layout changes for my main pages.
