Pop-up banner adds

I don’t notice the pop-up advertisements on this site anymore, since the browsers I am normally using (Mozilla & Firebird) block them, but I know that they irritate quite some visitors of this site.

But as they say: you get what you pay for. I pay nothing for hosting this site, and in return I’ll have to accept that my provider adds these horrible things to my pages. 🙁

But I have good news for you: today I arranged a new hosting provider, and since I am paying a little bit, they will host my site banner free!!!!!!. I could have upgraded my current account, but I have found a provider who gives me a lot more for less!!!

Here are the specs:

  • 75mb disk space
  • 5gb/month bandwidth
  • Unlimited e-mail accounts
  • Unlimited FTP accounts
  • Unlimited MySQL 4 databases
  • Unlimited subdomains
  • 4 mailing lists
  • One domain
  • PHP 4.3.1
  • CGI-Bin (Perl)
  • POP3, SMTP, IMAP, & Webmail
  • Unlimited e-mail forwarders
  • Unlimited autoresponders
  • crontab

For me, the biggest advancements are the MySQL database, unlimited POP3 boxes and PHP. I don’t know anything about PHP, but I have seen a lot of handy code that I would like to copy & paste in my templates.

Another benefit is that without the banner code, my pages will contain valid XHTML 1.1 code.

For the coming period, I’m afraid that I will still serve my site from the old location with pop-ups, since I want to set up the new server really, really good, and like to fix some design flaws in the current site.

Be patient, dear visitors…
