I am SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY that we have finally made the switch away from that horrific PLOGHOST to my new home DREAMHOST. Suddenly, I am back on Google in a big way and other search engines so the number of page views has shot up a whopping 20-40% every day since we did the shift!!! In addition, the site seems to be faster and the down time will hopefully be much less. However, there are transfer issues that we are still working on. Some folks have emailed me to say their RSS feeds are not working properly. It seems the feature to forward posts to friends is still not right. But worst of all, I seem to have personally totally screwed up my email accounts for some dopey reason. So if you have emailed me in the past three days and didn’t get an answer, I am publicly apologizing here, seems I can’t send anything out. And if you received multiple answers to the same email, then I apologize for the bother, but at least you got my answer and I just didn’t know it. I am NOT ignoring you guys, I just am working with kinks. Sorry about that. In the meantime, stay tuned as I am about to let loose on rants related to a “favorite” bank of mine at the moment. I need my technical stuff in order if I am about to get an upsurge in traffic related to the rant(s). The last time I let loose on a good rant, over 10,000 page views were registered on that one topic… And just when you thought life was good with a NEW and BETTER host, I have had very intermittent service from my PLDT DSL line in the past 36 hours adding to the technological frustration…

    MM…

    No worries. Prior to the move, you gave us plenty of warning regarding the possible glitches. I like to think of it as your new home “settling in”. There’s bound to be some creaks and cracks to be expected along the way.

    Talking about DSL service, I too had some issues with AT&T DSL after i moved from Comcast cable (dsl is cheaper, hence the move). It took awhile for them to troubleshoot the intermittent disconnect issue. It always happens when i start using the phone. They keep telling me that I might have connected the filters wrong, and If they have to come over and find out that i’ve connected them wrong they will have to charge me $200 for the inside-the-house service call.

    I told them if they don’t fix it i will move back to cable. Come to find out they left a monitoring chip on their box outside my house when they are renovating from copper to fiber optics which is interferring with the DSL signal.

    They had to give me 2mos free internet service after they admitted their mistake :-)
