The site redesign continues. The emphasis has been on ease of use and navigation with a pleasing uniform design.
Most, if not all, so called "free" services are unsuitable for our unique needs. They either have pop-ups, pop-unders or banner ads that are inappropriate. In addition Sasian will end 2002 with about 115,000 page views. Free hosts generally have limits for bandwidth and/or pages served. Pay hosts that meet our requirements are simply too expensive. Sasian has always been a shoestring operation with expenses being paid, for the most part, by friends. The site while it receives lots of traffic has never generated more than a few dollars through the use of Amazon or other affiliate programs.
We have been working on a site redesign for several months and hope to launch it soon. Until then we will host the site but there may be periods of unavailability or other reliability issues. We appreciate your forbearance during this transition.
