I contacted some hosting sites:
$7 to $30 per month, (for only 11 pages!), even without WordPress (which I don't need because I can 
write my own HTML and javascript), even without implementing a shopping cart etc.
And I would need my own domain.

I have a 16 year old ClarkCommunity server (now, ClearOS) on a Dell Octiplex machine that I could 
put in my router's DMZ and serve pages from my basement, but I'd still need a domain.

If you're too lazy to unzip the pages I've sent, that's fine, don't unzip them, okay?

I can't afford a 3-year contract for a domain. I can't afford the monthly fee for hosting (or, 
alternatively, I don't have the time to resurrect my 16-year old server and figure out how to put it 
back into the DMZ).

As far as serving pages, I guess I'll have to go back to Doom9, reformat my HTML into Doom9's awful 
markup, and live with the fact that Doom9's site is broken and doesn't notify people of new posts 
and isn't organized into topics.

File sharing doesn't render in a browser. It supports downloading of files. Why would I do that? You 
have already downloaded the files because they were attached to the message I sent to ffmpeg-user.

So, really, you must be objecting to ZIP -- I had to ZIP in order to attach.

You are the one who's making it hard.
