I've always avoided geocities.  Very often, when I'm searching for
something, I won't even bother pursuing geocities links...I've had too
many difficulties with "moved" sites, broken links, and downright too
slow, ads, etc. :).  Personally, I shell out $13/mo. (plus dns
registration) so I don't have to deal with screwy, ever-changing "free"
providers (that and I like to be ad-free...:).
