Don't Build Blogs on ISP-Hosted Websites

I first started this website back when Verizon was providing our DSL, using Verizon's Web Space feature. Then, Verizon sold their land line operations to Frontier, and my website was summarily moved to a new address. The old site still exists, but I cannot modify it, and there is no way to forward people to the new address. But now, Frontier has terminated the agreement with the people who provided the blogging software, so if I want to update my website, I'll have to use FTP to access and edit the HTML directly. That's no big deal, save for the fact that the HTML is machine generated, and is coyote ugly. Trying to maintain a blog that way is not pleasant.

So now, I'm here. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends.
