Misery on Tripod right now
I publish a site on Tripod. Things have gone down the tubes over the weekend. Friday, I couldn't make an FTP connection. Then it wouldn't take the password. Now for 2 days. I lose my connection during the publish about half the time. Always lose the citydesk.xml file and usually the index file. I publish to the site nearly every day. It's huge, a complete republish site takes forever and I'd probably lose the connection in the process anyway.
I use www.pair.com for hosting.
You are correct. We reached Tripod's 20 meg limit on Friday. My client, Mac, is on a pension and has to deal with paying in Australian dollars which are worth about .59 US. But we've finally reached the point and we have to make a decision. It's going to be great getting rid of the Tripod ads.
Nowhere really. Things got hectic at work (which is when I did most of my reading here) and then things got non-existant at work - as in I was laid off.
A lot of folks have suggested a bunch of low cost hosting services. It's been helpful and I really appreciate it.
