元:WWW authoring via FTP in AOL, um, NOT!

After a year of hosting with, which worked well, I'm exploring other options for hosting the blog. I spent two hours trying to get AOL ftp access working right. They must be cutting costs at AOL and hiring monkeys for sysadmin tasks, because the AOL FTP access has an extremely high bogosity factor. One can only use a FTP client to put files in a folder called incoming, but that folder is only accessible from the AOL provided FTP client, which is, as well, brain-dead. What's more, you must have a bona-fide AOL client logged in under the screenname at the time of FTP access. Wait-?maybe if I stand on a chair?

After exploring the various hosting options I have available, I'm going to run with using's forwarding service to forward to a sub-directory on We'll see how that goes. Full speed ahead, and never surrender!
