The Rest Holm Times – Archive: March 2005

– Some more book reviews to read: Pride and Prejudice, Cryptonomicon, Tender is the Night, Cold Comfort Farm, and Oryx and Crake. I’m not totally happy with how the review section is lain out, so if you have any ideas, please let me know.

And now for the embarrassing admission: I have no idea how to use ftp! I am getting sick to the back teeth with geocities, as well as a url that sounds like it should belong to an old peoples home, and have pretty much decided that I am going to fork out for my own domain name and webhosting. No more evil adds! This though leads to a problem, because geocities has the nice interface to edit/upload things through. The webhosting service doesn’t seem to. I am perfectly capable of creating webpages on my computer, but I am at a loss to know how to get them from my harddrive to the servers, and then how to edit them etc. From what I can gather from the hosting peoples help files, they give you ftp codes, and then it is up to you… Help?!
