Replacing Google Page Creator
While making some small updates to one of my Google Page Creator sites, I discovered that they are phasing out the service. I was sad to hear this, as most of the web sites I have a need to create are usually a handful of pages or less, or is just a small repository for some images. I don't know whether Google is going to start cracking down on this, but it's pretty trivial to create a Google App Engine application that does nothing but serve up static content. An additional benefit of this is that I can make the default URL map to a useful page, instead of having to link to an index page.
