this must be totally standard tripod policy, because when the borderhack
website was being designed, we put it online so the people involved in the
city who where in different citys could comment and work on it. and adter
like 2 days of having it online, it started showing a 404 error which would
redirect you to tripod homepage. then we noticed the login and password for
the account also stopped working. the same happened to us in geocities.

can we call this censure? or should we just keep on smiling, as usual? =)

nos vemos en el futuro.
