A small thing I noticed this morning is that Safari wasn't able to complete the DSM 3.0 update - after selecting the file and hitting the upload button it didn't proceed any further. Firefox 3.6, on the other hand, had no problem with the task and was only too happy to process the update. Oh, and the DSM 3.0 OS is gorgeous!
After several hears calling Dreamhost the home for my website, I've moved the site to HotDrupal.com, a web hosting firm that specializes in Drupal hosting. So far, so good.
My main reasons for the move were:
I'd like to say that I've never really had any problems with Dreamhost themselves, they've been very reliable over the past few years, it was just simply that with my site stopped being able to work I had to move elsewhere.
HotDrupal has been really good over the past few days while I got my account set up. They don't offer the earth, like some, instead they offer specialized yet flexible hosting and cover all of the basic needs if you don't specifically need to host a Drupal site.
I also took the opportunity to move the domain registration away from GoDaddy to NameCheap (affiliate link), a company that doesn't need to promote its services with scantily clad female racecar drivers. I've previously moved other domains to NameCheap and this was final one. Again, so far I like their services - lots of features for decent rates and they don't waste your time with tons of obstructive & annoying sales pitches on what felt every single page load like GoDaddy does.
Lastly, I've moved the domain's email hosting to Google Apps, just so that I could separate email from the website hosting, which will give me more flexibility to move it around as necessary, and avoid filling up my disk quota with my gb's of IMAP email.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Thanks to Dave Reid for the NameCheap recommendation.
