AO-HELL

Last night, I received the following e-mail from AOL:

Dear AOL Hometown/FTP user,

We’re sorry to inform you that on Oct. 31, 2008, AOL® Hometown and FTP will be shut down permanently. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Though you will be able to modify your Hometown site and access FTP until this date, we urge you to save your AOL Hometown/FTP content immediately, and consider other options for hosting your site.

MY first page: http://hometown.aol.com/browniizze1/myhomepage/profile.html

Even pages I made for my sister: http://hometown.aol.com/ka2spider1/Wedding.html

There are 3 or 4 letterboxing clue pages, 2 pages I upload pictures to host as MySpace backgrounds. Lots and lots and lots.

Someone help! Where can I move these to? The thought of losing them makes me mad mad mad. Stupid AOL.
