Lycos Europe has ended the Tripod Europe Web Service. Some sites are incorrectly reporting that Lycos was shutting down Tripod. This simply is not true (confirmed by Lycos). Lycos and Lycos Europe are separate entities. Lycos, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daum Communications, Corp. Lycos Europe is owned by Telefonica.  Lycos Tripod is still up and running.
