I need a new home page..

Iím sick of being chased around by Google and Yahoo. I want a page that knows less about me then I know about it.
I donít trend.

News, scores, weather.
I have been using ADV for the last few months, Itís far better then Yahoo, but lacs a bit in the news, sports and weather departments

Every ISP I have had, always provided me a few megs of free web space. (Most people never use theirs.) Find and download a free web/HTML editor. I used Netscape composer, But I am not sure it still exists. Slap a background picture on that you like. Maybe add some links to your favorite sites. Save it all to your hard drive. Then upload it to your free web space. Set it as your home page in your web browser and you are done. It will load quick when you open your browser, and won't have any pop up adds, or other crap that makes a page slow to load, (unless you put it there.)
