My site is going to be pure-html, but I have a lot of content to share:

Images
 I've been creating abstract digital images for years.
Programs
 I love programming and code games and tools.
Sound
 I'm not a pro musician, but some people like my tunes.
HL
 I'm making a mod for Half-Life. I also have some weird demos.
CoreWar
 Game of CoreWar is deep and intricate, but there are only a few good CW sites. Being a good CW player, I'd like to have CW page.
Texts
 I wrote some articles related to image compression and I'd like to make them worldwide available.

Examples:
http://dcsnake.narod.ru/demo_apt.jpg - abstract images
http://dcsnake.narod.ru/demo_zl.jpg

http://www.koth.org/lcgi-bin/current.pl?hill94nop - CW hills
http://www.ociw.edu/~birk/COREWAR/LP/hill_rec.html

http://dcsnake.narod.ru  - Site by me and my friend

I can provide further examples if you want.

Example of how my music may sound like: http://dcsnake.narod.ru/qhack2.mp3
Quite mad, but I make ambient stuff too.
Or you can't download anything from dcsnake.narod.ru at all?

I guess I am confused to what the overall emphasis or theme of your website is. I know I am relatively new to the boards, but you don't say a whole lot in your application.

Note: the images you have take longer to load than on 14.4 kb/sec modem. Is that the host site that seems so laggy?

Actually there is no main theme (just different types of content), but if you want one, then it is "Digital Art" (I count programming and mapping as art too).

Yes, narod.ru is laggy.

Still no answer ... Anything wrong with my application? If you're still deciding, maybe these pictures will convince you:

It would be really nice to see an example site that featured some of the content you talked about it your application.

Not saying there is or isn't anything wrong with it...just wondering if we could see that.

It would be really nice to see full-blown site at Xepher! The problem is that I can't find free hosting without ads (and with some free space). So I don't have an example site. And I don't want to have half-baked site with ads.
But I can describe what my site is going to be: ascetic HTML with abovementioned contents. Maybe you can advise something that I can use instead of Xepher (since I don't really need all the features that Xepher provides)?
There is a site of collaborative DosCore Snake project: http://dcsnake.narod.ru
But it features only some pieces of content.

Try something like atspace (http://atspace.com), freewebs (http://freewebs.com), or even geocities. (http://geocities.com)

They might have limited space or adds, but they will let you put together a sample page so that everyone here can get a good idea of your concept for the site, your ability to create the site, and your dedication to create/update it. It's a pretty common part of the application process, so don't feel singled out!

Also, none of the pictures you're linking actually load. I just get some sort of redirect to a page that I can't read. Sorry, I don't know much Russian.

Another note; you may not want us to see a "half-baked" site with ads, but I can assure you we're not judging on ads presented.

I suggest atspace.com.... only drawback, any files cannot be above 200kb .. but you get lots of space, tons of bandwidth, and NO ads... all free!

Unsure about Freewebs.com

I highly recommend AGAINST geocities' free service because there are ads.

I don't want to create new site at atspace or freewebs only to demonstrate some examples, so try this: http://dcsnake.narod.ru/root.htm
If this doesn't works, I'll have to use atspace.

the link you provided takes quite a while to load... even though your file sizes are tiny.
ok, the background makes it too difficult to read the text you have included. To make it easier on the viewers eyes, either make the background lighter or change something so that the text could be read.
ack i have to sleep... things are loading too slowly for me~  so i'd leave it to others to provide more opinions ^^
