Seriously considering moving from Dreamhost

January 24, 2008

My server is down again today which is pretty annoying but not much worse than the it’s usual sluggish responsiveness. I just read here that if I cancel within 97 days of registering that I could get a full refund for my annual fee! I think that leaves me a week so I gotta decide soon.

Im thinking of switch to a VPS setup. That way at least if the server is down, it will most probably be my fault. I haven’t had a big look around but what i’ve read about vpslink is been good so far. Not much came up on the i-hate-vps-search or their parent company, when compared to the dreamhost equivalent lol. Not that im putting too much weight on that simple analysis.

The good thing is that I don’t have any live sites at the moment, but a couple very near to production, so I am wary of that. Another huge factor is my level 1 Tauren Shaman experience points when it comes to linux & its command line… but really, how hard can it be right? *cough* i mean, im by no means reinventing the wheel, or the spoke for that matter. Im sure there will be a vast resource of newbie friendly tutes out there.

Oooh today I also decided to have a wee dabble with Ruby on Rails. I’ve seemed to have got a handle of php and feel like broadening my horizons and I thought RoR was a great choice.

[edit]& lol! i just read that RoR is released standard on Mac OSX Leopard! I already wanted a Mac Book, now I want to sell shit to get 1[/edit]

    hey man if you make the move to RoR I can teach you many things. but only on the mac… I have actually given up even offering the standard family 24/7 tech support to any family members that arent on the mac now. It was a tough call, but I had to do it.
