Web Jump take a Jump!
From Philip on 5 March '99
Being the skinflint that I am (and clever with it!!) I couldn't resist the offer of FREE web hosting put up by Web Jump. Quote: "We simply place a banner ad on your web pages - that's it!"

Hmmm..I can cope with a banner......

Turns out "a banner" is a full width frame 75pix high (BIG banner I thinks!!)

But that's not all. It ain't one compressed image!! It's up to 7 separate uncompressed images that take forever to load, and the middle one is a blinking (that's flashing) and very obtrusive square.

Am I just sensitive or does that seem to be not quite in the spirit of their offer of "place a banner"

With a setup fee of $200 and numerous ongoing charges I won't be asking them to remove the 'banner' - I'll just remove me-self!!

(Hurricane looks good Jim!!!!!!!!!)
