Webspace access

I know we are having some issues around accessing our webspace. I have located a secondary free web hosting site, 0catch, and we will use it in the meanwhile for the 3rd period class. 2nd period will continue with FreeWebSpace for now. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'm trying to figure this problem out from help at support.

We are also starting our vocabulary study with VETY.

Problem may have been solved with FreeWebSpace.
