what is an artist to do

I hate to say this, but I think I am outgrowing my website. I am having a lot of issues with it.

I used to be able to log in to it and make a change here or there, or add a link, but now it's difficult to do. Tripod doesn't work well in the Firefox browser - the easy sitebuilding features don't work in Firefox, and I have to do everything via HTML (my nightmare, although I have self taught myself a bit of it to semi-function.)

Here is the html for me working with html:

< html >
< Primal Scream src="Darla">Arghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
< /Primal Scream src=Darla >
< /html >

Because of Tripod's apparent problems with the Firefox browser, I kept Internet Explorer on my computer so I could still work on my website. But for the last fews times I've tried to login, Tripod acts as if I didn't input any login information. I see the username and password going in, but it does nothing except refresh the page.

Soooo, when I get time, which at this point may be 2008, I'm going to see what I can do about my website. I have some portraits on Artwanted.com that I haven't been able to add to my site.

You can see them at this link...
they were done quite some time ago but in between not having much time to work with the site even when it was working well, and now the site editing is definitely not doing well, I think you will really need to visit my artwanted portfolio to see anything done in the last 2 years or so.

I kind of want to totally start over with my site on a new server, but my domain name is stuck with Tripod. Overall though, I have been happy with Tripod, but there are some definite issues and that is very boring for a blog, if it hasn't put you to sleep already.

Well, goodnight.

Hi Andrea, normally one can just forward their url and take it with them, but Tripod is in a world unto itself. I don't think I can take it with me...it's how Tripod keeps people with them I think. I will research it a bit more when I have time.
