I am the web master, Bill Frisinger. I can be reached at:
Please let me know of any problems you find with the site and feel free to
offer suggestions. I am an atrocious speller and would appreciate your
suggestions about alternate spellings that might be more in keeping with
As with all web hosts, I want to know about any dead links. Weeding them out is
a never ending task.
I am also a miserable speller so feel free to let me know about any errors, I
promise not to take offense. Also let me know about anything else you think I
I have started to make the site more handicapped accessible. I am using a
shareware program, A-Prompt version 1.0.6 to help in this. This program is a
joint effort of the University of Toronto and the University of Wisconsin.
Try double clicking on all pictures, most have links (as shown by the way the
curser changes shape when it is over it) Ditto for underlined for text in blue.
There may be a menu item at the top of bottom of the new page that will bring
you back or you may have to use the back arrow in the upper left corner of your
browser. You will always have to use the back arrow after looking at the
I generate everything on a PC. I try to make
things Mac compatible. Recently I discovered that Macs have trouble
reading .WMV video files. I have added a note to where Mac users can get a
program to view them and I am adding links to Youtube sites that have the same
I originally sized the pages for
800 by 600 displays and a dial up connection. In 2009 I am assuming at
least a 1024 by 768 display and a somewhat faster connection although I
still try for a fairly fast download.
Purpose of this web site:
The original primary purpose was as a web page for
my wife's campaigns for Issaquah City Council and later mayor. She is
now out of politics so aside from some archive information, it is just a
family web site with extra information about and island in McGregor Bay
Ontario that used to be our favorite vacation spot. We quite going
there when the owner died. I have also added a lot of stuff related to
computer maintenance and user notes for some of my favorite smart phone apps,
mostly photo and mapping related. I needed notes for myself and it is often
helpful to have them available when I am fixing computers for others so I have
them on the web for all to use. I have recently added a very small amount
of information specificity formated for smart phones. You will
automaticity go there when logging in from a smart phone. You then have
the option of going to the main site.
Some Site Statistics
||Broken Hyperlinks Mostly pages under development, or CSS files that
I do not understand.
My Hit counters are reset periodically. My daily hits are
in the single digits.
I cannot remember when the site first got started but
it was up by the summer of 1997. It was originally hosted by my internet service
provider and I used Microsoft Word as my HTML editor. In January 2000 I got my
own web address and started using Front Page around that time. Front Page is
probably over kill but Microsoft Word was definitely underkill. In 2008 I
switched to Microsoft Expression Web.
I try to check for dead links
about every 6 months but sometimes I am way behind. As anybody who hosts a web site knows, keeping up with
changes in linked pages is always a job and sometimes great information seems to
disappear entirely. When ever you find a dead link let me know. I hate it when
someone says "Oh, that site has been down for months."
My home page typically
gets about 2 hits a day and the Island web page gets about 4 a day.
Why is this a .net site?
Nothing else seemed to fit any better and frisinger.com was taken. Since this is
not a business .com did not seem particularly appropriate any way. This may grow
into the e-mail address for a lot of Frisingers so .net would make more sense.
This web site is
being hosted by http://www.fatcow.com and am paying $66/Year. At this time I am
quite satisfied with their service.
They periodically lower the price or add
more free space. They do not automatically extend the new stuff to you but
if you call up and complain you can get the improvements. They do want you
to set up the account so it is automatically renewed unless you call an tell
them not to.
This rate includes:
- Unlimited Disk Space for Your Files (I use 0.04 GB) If you press them
it is not unlimited but it is large. My church stores lots of videos
of services and it does not have enough space for that.
- Unlimited Monthly Data Transfer
- 100 Email Accounts
- 25 Meg storage for each e-mail address (Can be enlarged, when I was
taking a long vacation I requested 50 Meg and got 75 at no charge) I now
have my e-mail set to only store the emails for a certain amount of time so
the problem no longer shows up.
- ShopSite Starter (Have not used it)
- Friendly Toll Free Support (and I found that to be so.)
- 30-day Money Back Guarantee
- Webstats (Quite confusing but I assume theirs is the standard form)
- Brightmail Anti-Spamô (Works great!!)
- WebMail Works OK, sometimes I have problems with attachments. I
have not bugged their support people about it yet as I can always get
everything when I get back home.
- Front Page Extensions
