My front porch in Old Town Eureka is known as The Sunny Side. Southern exposure, protected from the wind, it is an ideal place to sit and play old timey tunes and watch the parade go by.

Google Apps Web Pages No Longer Available

I've been a big fan of Google Apps and the Apps Web Pages. All of my domains are hosted in Web Pages. Google announced a couple months ago that they were 'sunsetting' Web Pages and 'migrating' to Sites. I've spent many hours in the Apps help group helping folks set up Web Pages to work with their domain. On August 23 I set up hucktunes.info to see if it was still available to new domains, and it was. I checked again on October 5 with octoberapps.info and it is gone, replaced with Sites. Sites does not allow file uploads or html, only generic Geocities type of web sites. I've lost my enthusiasm for Google and will probably not be receiving anymore swag. Bummer. And the Google Page Creator archives have been removed, http://groups.google.com/group/Google-Page-Creator.

Yeah, me too. They say that all Pages will be migrated to Sites on June 1st. Man, Google must have a bunch of bone heads calling the shots. Now Google Groups are being locked down one after another because of reports of spam. Google is now mighty aggressive in it's quest to control content on it's sites.
