As you may or may not have seen, I took this site down last week while I switched hosts. Now it’s back up.
An Apology to the Scorned
Believe me: I’m not one to bore you with my hosting switching tales. I get bored just thinking about it; why you would want to read about it is beyond me. However, there is one point I’d like to bring up.
I host all of my projects with Dreamhost. While they certainly have their share of mishaps, they’re easily the best I’ve seen for what I’m looking for. I have an account with them, and they give me money for referring people, which is great. However, because I got this particular domain long before Dreamhost was on the scene and also because of a stupid domain locking issue, this site was hosted elsewhere. I set up hosting with Dreamhost, but the DNS was pointing to the old host.
My email through the old host was just fine. However, I noticed that I wasn’t getting emails from certain people. It turns out that if someone who had email set up with Dreamhost emailed me, it would go to my Dreamhost email account and not my regular email. I didn’t discover this until the transfer had been completed and I set up the new email. So…
Please consider this a very sincere apology if you’ve emailed me (especially from a Dreamhost account) within the last year and a half and haven’t received a reply.
I feel terrible about it. The good news is that I don’t plan on switching hosts for a good long while, so it shan’t happen again.
