from the i-am-trying dept.
I am trying to get my shit back up and running. 1and1 is a great host, they are, but they dropped me due to non-payment, rather, turned me off until I pay. I do have a job, I do. It is just that I don’t start until May 31st, 2010. 🙁 I want to start working now but alas, it looks like I will have to wait to work.
On that note, regarding hosting…I am with Wanted.WS. They have provided me with some free service and the speed is, in my opinion, better than when I had it with 1and1! Wanted.WS has the ability to set you up with free cPanel service and it is not bad at all. Now, I haven’t tried using anything regarding ffmpeg and programs of that nature as I do not have VPS service. Hopefully, if all gets to be well and I start having a job, maybe I can ask if I can acquire VPS service through them and pay for it…hmmmm…a thought.
If you would like service, then please, head over to Wanted.WS, fill out the required information, and wait. That is what I had to do. It is up to Wanted.WS to decide if you have service through them. I had to wait and so will you.
The only thing they require is an ad of sorts. Yes, I have stated on here before that I wouldn’t have any kinds of ads on here what so ever. Well, I had 3 to choose from and I figured a banner ad is less intrusive than a Pop Up ad or an ad where certain words are highlighted and when you hover over them, an ad pops up. Now THOSE piss me off so I said no to the highlighted words. I hate pop-ups so I decided to go with a banner. So far, so good in regards to the banner ad. I haven’t had it do anything crazy. I have seen it advertise games but that is it. One thing I do know is that the ads are NOT mine but they are for Wanted.WS to help pay for server costs as I am getting mine for free, they need money too. So, if anything comes up questionable as in porn and such, which I hope it doesn’t, then you can blame them, not me.
Other than that…all is well with my world. I have a couple of other things I want to talk about a little later but that will have to wait…gotta get ready for my SHOUTcast Radio show for Monday!
Until next post…
