I've always avoided geocities. Very often, when I'm searching for something, I won't even bother pursuing geocities links...I've had too many difficulties with "moved" sites, broken links, and downright too slow, ads, etc. :). Personally, I shell out $13/mo. (plus dns registration) so I don't have to deal with screwy, ever-changing "free" providers (that and I like to be ad-free...:). Iain
