Site5 Maintenance News

September 27, 2006

If you’ll direct your attention to the right side nav bar, you’ll notice that I have added a widget that displays the latest Site5 maintenance notices. This pulls from an RSS feed generated by their forum, so every time they post a new announcement, it should automatically update in the sidebar on this site. I hope that this will bring some more timely news and information in the occasions where I am unable to post my own updates right away.

Also, I’ve added a link to our Statistics page on SiteUptime. This will show you the uptime for the web server for the past few months. Note that in September it’s particularly bad. I apologize for this, but there is nothing I can do about it (well, except for switching web hosts, which I am always considering as an option).


Cancelled! Hooray!

Woohoo! (Even the request to cancel took them a while to respond to… sheesh.)

Could you please cancel my TekTonic VPS account and all associated packages.

This has been canceled.

Gimme 5!

June 4, 2005

I’ve just finished migrating from TekTonic to Site5. The only downside to this move is that I will lose any ability to have direct control over the machine that runs on – I can’t install a newer version of Apache or MySQL or Perl, nor can I tweak the server configuration. Other than that, there are tons of upsides:

* The server itself is more powerful, so should be much quicker now.
* Site5’s support is actually responsive, helpful, and friendly.
* Site5 will take care of all the server administration. I don’t have to worry about upgrading the OS, cleaning up logs, security threats, or running out of disk space.
* It’s cheaper – my TekTonic plan was $26/mo for 6 gigs of disk space, while Site5 is $21.95/mo for 12+ gigs of disk space.

I’m very happy about this move, and I hope all of the users will be, too. Please leave a comment if you have any questions!
