I'm in the process of switching web hosts, I'm doing it slowly so I don't break anyones site, especially cmpriest 's. There are two reasons for this, one is site uptime.
Not bad. Not great, my new host guarantees 99.9% uptime, but not bad. In fact the reason it's lower than I'd like will become apparent when I show you the next table:
March? Oh my dear god. That's one outage a day, and we're talking long outages here too. Several hours sometimes. The same goes for the last few months - long unexplained outages, for which they claim ignorance.
FuitadNet used to be good, but since they were bought out it has been a rough ride, and I hung on because they had actually got a lot better, but these last few months have been the last straw. It's not that it effects me, it effects the people I host, and that is not good enough.
Which brings me to the second reason - support. A perfect illustration of the difference between my new host and FNet is this: when I transfered the two domains I have with FNet it took them nearly a week to get back to me, and sort it out effectively.. When I had a small setup issue with the new host - a couple of hours.. and it was fixed then. They guarantee a response in 6hrs or less.
Good riddance, because they aren't who I signed up with several years ago.
Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.
