Geocities Sucks!

Ok, a couple of days ago I was getting really fed up with Earthlink's FTP software not uploading the changes I was making to Carlisle's Chaotic Corner. I finally got so irritated that I said, "Fuck it! I'm moving everything to Yahoo! Geocities." Boy, was that a mistake. After spending a few hours changing code on every page in my site and using Geocities crappy one file at a time web based upload device, I finally got everything transferred.

Then yesterday I get this in my Yahoo email:

Dear GeoCities customer,

What a crock of shit! They make it sound like I was trying to sell Amway or something! So I had to spend another couple hours this morning changing code again and moving it all back to the Earthlink server. Hey, their FTP my be crappy and take several minutes to actually show the changes, but at least I don't get stupid ass emails and a bunch of Fascist Assholes deleting my stuff on a whim!
