Here’s the second question:
2. Google Sites — Anyone have any experience with this? I discovered it last night (though it’s been around a while). It appears to be a way to create a website with different templates that are customizable. The help files said it was a wiki, which would allow for several editors and writers. It grew out of a company Google bought a year ago, I think. My thoughts went to trying it out on my music website, since the Yahoo Geocities ads are so intrusive and I’m having that problem with my domain name anyway. Maybe I should just throw something together and see how it turns out….
