Like Mark, I had been unable to update my web sites, "Ken's Tips on Utsunomiya" and
"Welcome to Ken Matsuoka's Home Okinawa", both formerly on AOL's FTP.

In fact, due to their or, specifically, eAccess's incompetence at supporting customers, I have had the inconvenience of having my access severed to their launching screen and FTP through my account for a couple of years prior to their announcement of shutting down FTP. And now, I am forced to make my home pages nonexistent.

It's a shame and I doubt the sincerity of AOL. AOL now fails to live up to the founder's concept of the net service, "Could your mother use it?".
Liar, America Onliar.
