I have my own website (justjames.us), because...well just because.  I had not visited it much, so I decided to set it as my start page when opening my web browser.  From there, I can get to the pages I use the most.  It's simple and easy to use and I can add whatever I like.  It still works as a portal for others to findout about me as well.

I currently have my site hosted with 1and1.com and I use Filezilla to maintain it.
