ur in my house stealin my internets


If you can see this post, then you’re seeing the blog as hosted on the Ubuntu side of my desktop computer.  I don’t know how long it’s going to have to stay here, but I’m fed the fuck up with Webserve’s lack of technical support and their particular security measures which, under normal circumstances, I would laud, that in this case have also removed my ability to connect to the site from my work VPN.

That’s right, they’ve blocked my work IP as well.

There’s no reason I should have to connect to my own blog using a proxy server.  So, I figure my desktop can handle things for a while.  Which it probably can, unless I go and get linked on Slashdot or something.  I don’t see how that’d ever happen, so we’re all good for the moment.

The going plan is to get my money back from Webserve, or whatever money I can get back, then find a decent, cheap hosting provider that actually answers technical support requests.  It’s not like I call in asking for help setting up an e-mail account in Outlook Express, for fucks sake.  I just want to know that if I tell someone that the site is down, they’ll actually give a shit, rather than asking for my IP address, then one e-mail later, ask for it again.

    Ah, but first the trick is for something on this site to actually be interesting enough to get attention. And I’m going to do my damnedest not to be interesting until I get a new host. (And probably after that.)

    FYI — most mail servers are refusing to relay mail from my site as hosted on my home connection, which means I’m not going to get e-mails for registration or comments. Sorry. I’ll try to get my refund as fast as possible, though it’s going to be at least Monday before I can get a hold of Webserve’s customer service.
