    I posted this on the frontpage the other day:
    http://www.osnn.net/comments.php?shownews=12552

    Did anyone end up signing up? As of about 10 PM EST last night, they have closed the door for new accounts, creating a waiting list..

    I joined the list, and learned a lesson to signup immediately from now on :(

    I'm going to update the frontpage story with this information as well...

    I still want it.

    From what I understand they will be opening up the program again very soon.

    There are obviously going to be people who want it...I mean geocities is where I first started out. But that was back in...1999 :D

    I got it .. It looks nice. I have to add more content to it. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is way to limited. But if you are using it for a regular page for pics and little things, it is perfect.

    Too many things out there to do. I have some woodwork to finish, playing games, beat my wife, laundry, the front O2 sensor, belt idler, bills to pay and drinking to do. There will be no time for a frontpage.........

    I wasn't anywhere near a keyboard at the time it went live, and Digg members ensured that no one else got a chance to use it :p

    I signed up to be notified when it becomes available again though, if not just to try, to let friends use :)

    I tried it when it just launched. It's nice if you want to throw together a quick WYSIWYG type of site.
    I don't think I classify as part of the target audience though. :D

    I want Google _______, because its from Google!

    Well no... but the GFB's think that way. Google's approach will no doubt be thirty-billion times better than Geocities' best efforts..but its still some sort of limiting crap Id never find fully satisfying.
