How the mighty have fallen...

Remember when Netscape used to be all about a web browser? Even fairly recently they were trying to be a discount ISP.

Quick note: When will a web site start?

Both polls on the right side of Da Blog (only one of which is visible at a time) will run for four and a half more weeks, ending two weeks into July. This is because I probably still won't get a lot of votes on either one, and I don't want to launch a web site right before or while I'm in the middle of a course that's condensed into four weeks. I probably will have a web site launched by July 15, though.

Web Site Update, one week in

ZendURL has begun attracting some not-so-favorable responses over on That makes me a lot more skeptical of them. I can't really wait to find out if they're going to fix their problems.

Scroll down to the "Web Site Update" post to learn more about the poll(s) on the right side of the screen. I need to get more votes than I have. If I get no responses on the web site host poll I'm probably going to be choosing between Freehostia and 50Webs. If I get no responses on the future-of-Da-Blog poll I'll reissue it in broader terms.
