Tim, you can't FTP to Geocities anymore, unless you've paid for an account with them. If you've only got a free site with Geocities (which I assume is what you've got) you can only upload via the Yahoo.Geocities file manager page.

which imho is very lame

have u tried web100 (http://www.web1000.com/), its kinda adult orientated, but free webspace is free webspace. their 404's are porn banners, but as long as you keep visitors 'in your site' with correct links, etc, u should be fine

ftp upload, no ads, and cgi

why do people want to use horrible off shore servers when there are free accounts with www.orcon.net.nz ?

i use a free offshore account mainly because of the things i get which orcon (or any other local free web host for that matter) doesnt, eg

php
mysql
100MB
CGI

sorta makes sense
