    While trying to go to my ftp site, I found a message from AOL telling me it will no longer maintain hometown.aol.com at the end of this month...

    Sucks for me, cause that's where I've had my online portfolio and other stuff for years...

    Formally announced on 9/30/2008:

    Dear AOL Hometown user,
    We're sorry to inform you that on Oct. 31, 2008, AOL® Hometown will be shut down permanently. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    I would have guessed AOL Hometown kicked off a long time ago.
  3. AOL is still around?
