Dear Idiot Bastard

Okay, well, somebody has to say it.

Dear Idiot Bastard Son,
For years I have been reading your excellent Zappa newspage. Navigating around your place was never easy (Powered by Lotus? Ody-frames?), but I hung around anyway because I’m not the type to judge a book by its cover. However, your recent move to bravehost.com (I refuse to make this a link) has turned your highly esteemed homepage into a pop-up, pop-under, iframe-enforced nightmare. It makes my eyes bleed and it wants me to click on way too many “Click Here” buttons. Tell you what: professional website hosting is pretty cheap these days. And look: the idiotbastard.com domain is still free! I’ll go one further and offer you free webspace over here at KUR, if you so wish. But please, get out of bravehost hosting, asap, if you can.

Stay in touch,
Kind regards,

Barry’s Imaginary Publisher.

    Yes. I see what you mean.

    I had the same reaction when the changeover was made. There’s gotta be a better way.

  3. tom says:

    one of the better ways would be wordpress + KUR Webspace. I have an invitation left, me thinks …

    tom: by “invitation”, I assume you mean a wordpress.com invite, no? In which case the webspace is provided by wordpress.com itself, no need for KUR webspace…

    I recognise the old pop-ups can be a bit of a pain, but surely most folk can block them? I seemed to have one last week that ignored such a desire, but that’s now gone. I probably don’t wanna alienate folk by moving the site again so soon, and to be honest it was either move or shut down completely. I’ve never claimed to be a professional webmaster (far from it) and the trade-off with this new site means I can get news out really quickly. Please persevere. I love you all. Andrew (aka The Idiot)
