DNS

You may not have noticed the website being down all day yesterday. That is because my host provider moved everything to a new server with a new IP. And didn't tell me. When I finally complained, they gave me the new IP which I then had to go update with my domain registar. Propogation then took an unknown amount of hours. Stupid webhosters.

In other news, something lighthearted to read:
top 10 poisons

---- update ---
I tried posting this earlier, but it was failing. Kept getting directory issues. Seems that when they moved to the new server, my webhost also changed the path name to my directory. So of course MT couldn't find anything. These are the kind of things I feel I should be informed of before such move occurs.

My old web hoster (fuitad) wiped my entire site and restored a backup from 4 months earlier. I don't use them anymore. Also MAKE OFFLINE BACKUPS. :)

I read webhosters as webhosers - heh heh
