One is that I use Tripod's Site Builder to build and maintain it. So
unless someone gives me a similar tool to maintain it, it becomes
The other is that I developed it because the previous Radio MB was
unavailable for weeks at a time as is often the case when someone hosts
something on small provider. My similar Bird Study MB site on Tripod
has been available 24/7 for over five years. Since they're a large
commerical provider, they don't make money when they're down.
Also, if we want Scouts to find it, it has to be at a stable URL so all
of the hundreds of Boy Socut sites can maintain a stable link for a
number of years.
So that's the logic behind why it's there. But if someone can solve
all three problems simultaneously, I'm open to suggestions.
