    No, that's not true, I am still talking about webpages. It IS a little off, but not entirely.... NOW I am getting off topic, who cares anyway, you?

    as far as I know, I don't have anything malicious in there, If I could I would even give you listing accese to the ftp, but I can't.I don't have a firewall but there's an image which doesn't load and the board nor the projects section don't work (all in my computer and my father's computer at the office). but it's very strange because ftp access isn't working either, and it's even stranger that the main site ( http://eqquinox.com ) isn't working. They may be experiencing technocal difficulties. I'll leave it alone until tomorrow, and if it's still like that, I think I'll have a talk with the webmaster. If I can't figure anything out, I think I'll have to pay for hosting. I don't have enough money to pay for a whole year, but at least I'll pay three months. But let's see what happens tomorrow

    there are some free channels in Bogota, but I have cable TV, so I actually have to pay for it.
    (and all the ones like it)

    Even if you do have to pay for cable, at least here in the US the amount you pay is no where near the cost of the show, or even the cost of the show divided by the number of users. You pay very little most of it going to the cable company for profit (who if I'm not mistaken also collects money from the channels that pay to be on cable).

    The money for all of your shows etc comes from the ads you see. All the people watching the superbowl don't pay for it with their cable bill (or no bill if they watch antenna here in US) It's paid for by the $2,000,000+ ads on it!

    Well meant Kermi.

    No pay == ads.
    No pay + No ads == No TV.
    Pay + No ads == TV.

    Osk? Are you going to PAY for webspace? Try www.portland.co.uk (I found the right address ^.^) But I think their server is busy right now, wait and see when it opens up again. It's pretty good, trust me. Actually I haven't used it for a long time, but it sure looks like it's a good host ^.^...

    no ads=no free site

    but the little pop-up box for yahoo is still annoying

    eqquinox is the best one I've ever seen, it's unlimited, it is fast and it's FREE, and NO ADS at ALL, you've seen my page! there's not a single banner or popup, is there? and I'm paying the amount of 0

    I checked the one you told me, Michelle, but it doesn't have MySQL, and I need that for the vBulletin...
