First of all, this sounds like an ad, but for people that don’t know how to start their own websites, it really is useful information. I just wanted to mention that I really like using DreamHost for my website. I get my own domain name, as many e-mail accounts as I want, unlimited hard drive storage, and of course website hosting, and a bunch of other perks, all for $9 a month. It’s also been a launching pad for other websites that I’ve tried starting, I can host other websites with completely different domains for just the cost of the domain registration ($14 a year).

Welcome to the new piettes.com!

Welcome to the new piettes.com website! Please bear with me while I update things to get the same functionality that I had before. I had originally written the old website sometime in 2001, and I had been just incrementally improving it. But then I was hacked and a lot of nasty code was inserted into everything, and the scripts that I wrote to clean it up ended up trashing a whole lot of other stuff. So welcome to the new site!
