I knew there was a reason why I didn’t put that URL on my moo cards. However, I thought that reason was the lousy layout and design, not the wee elephant that pops up when the page is loaded in IE (being a Mozilla/Firefox user, I never noticed it before).
Does Easyspace actively try to turn people off their services? Have they seen my homepage? If I was them, I’d be quiet about it, although their banner is possibly uglier than the site itself.
I’m currently looking into alternative hosting services and into getting that ugly site spruced up in time for Worldcon. Meanwhile, ECHOES OF CREATION, my 2005 NaNovel, will be posted here (in instalments). Have a peek if you’re bored—or looking for an alternative to slitting your wrists.
