About the WhoopA Network.
Originally, I didn't want to shell out money for the server, so I wandered the free servers community. I tried them all, and then some. I found a good amount of smaller services that seemed neglected and stayed on with them for a while... but I eventually ran into a problem with each one - losing my password, unable to upload files, not able to use php or CGI - and I wanted more.
Eventually I settled with Veoweb (they are very good and I highly recommend them) - I had used their free services before and decided to give their paid servers a try. I signed up for a domain name, whoopa.net, and life was good.
Or at least, I thought it would be. I ran into problems with my internet provider and was forced to switch ISPs. You may think this would not affect my website, but I had only registered my domain for one year. When the time came to renew, I never recieved the renewal notice because I had failed to notify them of my new email address. It was my fault, not theirs, so don't think I'm badmouthing anyone - I'm not. But I did have to register a new domain name and eventually settled on whoopanetwork.com - where I am now. May it always remain.
The Network itself has gone through two different site designs. The first incarnation of the site used frames and could be painful to look at at times: white text on a brown background. I'll be honest, too: the site wasn't as nearly noframes-friendly as it is now. The second incarnation is the one you see now, with one minor change: I originally used individual images for the secondary sections instead of one long bar. As my HTML skills improved, I changed the sidebar to the version you see now - infinitely easier to update, since I don't have to create a new image for each individual section. =)
The Network has been and will probably always will be my internet home away from home... although I do admit I'm quite partial to Starmen.Net, an Earthbound fan site But that's another story for another day...
This is me - WhoopA, creator and owner of the WhoopA Network. I program video games in my spare time and am willing to stay up all night to go that extra mile. Of course I stay up all night anyway in the firse place so it's a moot point =/
