  16. Also, you will see a separate window as below stating how much memory space you have.  If you do not get the windows as the above and the below, it means that the connection failed.  In that case, go to New Connection on the File menu, and re-initiate the connection. (repeat from step #12)  Make sure to put the correct information.  Also, sometimes, Geocities' Web server is too busy to establish a connection.  If you cannot make the connection after a few trials, try it again later.
