It is official! Lo-Fi Tribe is now evolving in the reliable environs provided by Media Temple. I left my old host due to serious reliability issues. The last week has been nothing short of frustrating as I wrestled in vain with “the dreaded white screen of death” (blank pages, no errors, just white), MYSQL errors, connectivity problems, slow load times (I’m talking molasses people), and the server wanted me to download almost every .php file, rather then opening them itself. In other words, my site was borked. It is all good at Media Temple, Lo-Fi’s new and permanent home. I now have 100 GBs of premium storage, 1 TB of short-path bandwidth, Host up to 100 individual sites and 1000 e-mail accounts. What else will I ever need?
Now, I’m off to inquire about my past purchase of a lifetime Mixed-Grill Account with TextDrive. Yes, I bought into a lifetime account with TextDrive. Lo-Fi Tribe was hosted on TextDrive’s infamous Gilford, and yes I paid for a lifetime. I’m hoping the good folk at Joyent and Textdrive will let me simply change the domain name associated with my lifetime account, and let me keep it. I would like to have the server space I paid for, but not to host this blog. I need way more reliability for Lo-Fi Tribe.
Well, I’m off to investigate my Mixed Grill options. Wish me luck.
UPDATE: The folk at TextDrive just informed me that I can change my domain name. So, I can keep the lifetime account I bought! What to do with it … is the question.
UPDATE: I am a student, living off of a student’s wage. I can not, therefore, float the costs of two websites (one of which is doing nothing, really). So, as a result of my necessary move of this blog from a lifetime account to a monthly paid account, I am trimming the fat from my online life. Folkography will be axed on January 8th, unless a dedicated and orthodox Christian believer wants to take it over (I’m into building online communities and then giving them away, eh?). Things happen…
UPDATE: I do apologize for the odd repetition of my fun “Christmas Prophet” Flickr image which exists - for the time being - below the fold of this blog. LOL! I am so sorry!
