I decided to go "no frames" but to use tables to make it "look"
similar to a frame site.

I broke up my site into smaller chuncks to make updates easier
(because I use tables and it is sometimes a pain to update them with
longer pages).

Also, smaller chuncks forces me to be brief within each topic, and
each topic basically has it's own page. This makes it easier to delete
a topic or replace a topic as well.

What do you think?
