    Unfortunate. To the customer, we do the same thing, but are two different bands on a spectrum. I shy away from web design because I'm a perfectionist and I'll spend hours on miniscule things, and simply don't have the time right now. On another note, I will be generating my main revenue off my ISP dial-ups.

    There are other venues available to me now. If you'd like, I'm open to discussion privately to benefit both of us. Good luck to you also.

    I've always done my own but that's changing. After seeing Bill's new web site I spoke with Mike about having him redo my site and start hosting. While the hosting service is more than what I'm paying now, he works on the site, is accessable, and very friendly. For the years I've been doing this that is very rare. He "threw together" something for me to look at, here was what he showed me:

    www.doteasy.com is a great hosting company, I have about 4 domains hosted with them and I have not had a single complaint. They are free but you only get 20mb of storage, so if you have quite a few pictures you can fill that up quick. They don't have phone support or anything like that, just email support but I haven't had a need for that in the past 2 years.

    Just my 2 cents.

    My "site" is still a work in progress, although I have not worked on it in a few months. I did take a crash course in Dreamweaver, but you got to use it or lose it. When I finally get the site up and running it wil be at tpilandscaperservice.com . A long name for sure, but that's my business name ( on side of truck and enclosed trailer ) so hopefully my customers and others will find it. A shorter road would be to hire out my web site, but I'm just stubborn and stupid enough to ram my head onto cyberspace till I get it right! I need a local Dreamweaver guru/friend to help out. Are you still hiring out your site? I'll have to check it out.
