I'm an amateur web designer. Because of my intense hatred of pop-ups, I've been using MSN groups for my personal page, which is highly stifling to my creativity. You can't do ANYTHING with those. So I want a website I can build from the ground up myself, and tinker around with. The problem is when I check out geocities and tripod, they have all those stinkin' pop ups everywhere. I guess Geocities isn't horrible, at least it's small and you can get rid of it easily, so I might go with that, but does anyone know of any other good places that can host my personal site for free without being a HUGE pain as far as ads?
