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]

Dreamhosting

January 21, 2008

My Dreamhost hosting is so slow & unresponsive quite often it scares me. I bought it for hosting my contracted websites but am starting to regret it as the service can be quite poor. Next time i think ill have to take more responsiblity into researching reccomendations from others.

The only thing is, it’d only take me all of 24hrs to break it.

WordPress & OpenID

January 9, 2008

Im begining to really warm to my openid account. I love the idea and am trying to use it when ever and where ever I can.

I just recently found out that any wordpress account is an actual openid account (i’m quite tech naieve, but hopefully with the power of GTD I will have time to read around about new interesting stuff). But! from what I can see, you can’t create a WP acocunt using another openid account created else where. Why? Surely this can’t be the case and im just obviously blind!

I guess the other way I could do it is host WP myself. Might add to my hugely unoraginsed todo list.
