Thanks for all you do! Today my
computer (Norton) said the site is unsafe. I was wondering
if you might be able to help me figure out why it is warning
me! Thanks again for you tireless and wonderful efforts.

initially selected 00FreeHost.com as our server in 2003, it
was absolutely the best deal around. The first time I
noticed they might have issues was a year or so later when
Paul Dobie ('66) of CO told me his Army provider
would not allow him to view the site on post. This so upset
him that he kept pushing for answers and found that the
military had deemed 00FreeHost as unsavory as they host a
myriad of porn sites. Well, who knew?!?
Hope you do not infest somebody with a weak or no AV program.
20 JAN newsletter page also generated one alarm.
Something has infected the site. Time to call Freehost.
"Déjà vu all over again", hmm?
Just as it happened last summer, the various anti-virus and annoying spam programs are alerting visitors to any and all conceivable problems. 00FreeHost serves hundreds of web sites. Some of them are less savory than others. If one has a problem, the filters find them all equally guilty - even when no danger exists, such as now from us. We're fine. Nothing has infected our site. I personally may be "annoying" six ways from Tuesday, but our site constitutes no such "annoyance".
00FreeHost.com has, however, become increasingly annoying.....This is the major reason I'm switching servers from 00freehost to awardspace.
My #5 son (and resident techogeek), Nathaniel (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '97 - of IL) and I were all set to begin this process last night when I discovered that the webhosting fees actually expire on February 26 rather than today as I had been thinking, so we don't have the pressure to switch right this second that I feared, but it's coming very soon.....
Thanks for letting me know, Steve! So far, you and David are the only two who have mentioned this newest problem - which I find interesting in itself.
I've attached some items which you can use on your website if you have a place for them.
|WOWZERONI-RINI! Thanks so much for these great old treasures, Terry! My very favorite acquisitions for the site are original gems such as these!|
them right where they belong:
Thank you, Joyce!
Conan O'Brien's Last Night As Late Night Host
To all the people watching, I can never thank you enough for your kindness to me and I'll think about it for the rest of my life. All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."
~ Conan O"Brien
When the waitress in a New York City restaurant brought him the soup du jour, the Englishman was a bit dismayed.
"Good heavens," he said, "what is this?"
"Why, it's bean soup," she replied.
"I don't care what it has been," he sputtered. "What is it now?"

From ArcaMax Jokes - 01/26/09:
The manager of a large office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into his office. "What's your name?" he asked the new guy.
"John," the new guy replied.
The manager scowled, "Look... I don't know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked before, but I don't call anyone by their first name. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority. I refer to my employees by their last name only ... Smith, Jones, Baker... That's all. I am to be referred to only as Mr. Robertson. Now that we got that straight, what is your last name?"
The new guy sighed, "Darling. My name is John Darling."
"Okay, John, the next thing I want to tell you is . . . "

Recorded by The Tremeloes, 1967
Oh, don't it hurt deep inside
To see someone do something to her
Oh, don't it pain to see someone cry
Oh, especially when someone is her
Silence is golden, but my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see
Talking is cheap
People follow like sheep
Even though there is nowhere to go
How could she tell
He deceived her so well
Pity, she'll be the last one to know
How many times will she fall for his line
Should I tell her or should I keep cool
And if I tried, I know she'd say I lied
Mind your business
Don't hurt her
