shut down by AOL recently. Here's what's sad/funny, they didn't give sufficient notice to their users.

Somehow I ended up on the home page and started reading some of the user comments after the service was closed.

Thank you
Sandra

1. AOL has been warning they they will close the Picture service for at least a month.
Is that related to Hometown? It sounds like AOL is belt tightening.

2. Yes, Hometown.
Can you imagine having your journal or something of value just wiped out?

3. When you "bill" a website, it's tough to "loose" it...
12. WHERE IS THE HOME PAGE IT TOOK MONTHS FOR ME TO BILL. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY NOTICE VIA THE MAIL OR E-MAIL.

PLEASE HELP ME FIND MY WEB PAGE SO I CAN COPY IT AND MOVE IT SOME WHERE ELSE.

I SUGGEST YOU PUT THE HOME PAGE BACK OR YOU WILL LOOSE A LOT OF CUSTOMERS.

I WILL SEE TO THAT.

CONNECTIONS ALWAYS HELP.
