tripod's fine for webhosting, but their blog feature has been annoying me in a few increasingly important ways. comments never, ever worked. including html or xml in my posts was futile at best, and lost posts at worst. the lagmonster afflicts me so i assume it afflicts you.
i like tripod fine for the free webspace, and i gave their blog feature a fair shake. and it shook back so hard that it rattled my teeth.
thus, my personal pulpit has moved.
