Now comes the part where I start really trying to use it for the site. When I say for the site, I'm not referring to the back end organization part, but the actual content. This brings me to the Google Sites portion of the segment. For any person that at least knows what HTML is, Google Sites sucks. No dressing it up at all. It's just so basic, there really isn't much that you can do with it .. dynamically. It's more of a free and online version of a Google-like Frontpage or Word. Not quite sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. If all you want is some personal site that doesn't require doing much of anything, and you don't expect to get much, this is for you. The rest, don't go near it.
So until I get super famous, NearlyFreeSpeech is my new home. Considering this site will be for mainly for a place to learn while also displaying my resume, this is perfect. Don't have to pay much of anything, they support a good range of server-side scripting languages, and you have a good deal of control. At first, I was using this laptop for my own personal server. It was pretty nice, too. Except for when I moved from the Dallas/Fort Worth area to Nacogdoches. This place has nothing as far as technology goes. The internet is normally slow, and hosting is a nightmare. Everything put together, I'm happy with this decision.
