Server Woes

I’m gonna switch…

I apologize to anyone who’s been trying to access my site the past four or five days. AffordableHost, the company that owns the servers on which I have my site located is having troubles. Their servers are going up and down faster than a kid with a sugar rush on a pogo stick. As soon as I get time, probably tomorrow or Thursday, I’m going to switch to a different host – most likely AxisHost. I can’t say I like the name, but I do trust the people there. (From what I understand, AffordableHost was bought out a year or so ago, and some of the fine people who founded AffordableHost in the first place moved to AxisHost. I could be wrong. I do know that AffordableHost has been getting worse and worse ever since the new owners took control – service has been spotty and technical support is nearly nonexistent other than the occasional poorly-worded mass e-mail.)

Not only has my blog been wiggin’ out, but my entire “” site has been crashing with alarming regularity since Friday. I can’t get any good answers from the server people, which is irritating, and I just found out that if you go to the Smokin’ Clams website you end up on the site. That’s GOTTA be fixed soon! That could affect the Clams’ business, and I don’t want that. My e-mail doesn’t work, either.

As I said, I’m a-gonna switch companies as soon as I have time to figure out all the intricacies of such a move. I’ve never done it before, and, to be honest, the thought scares me a bit.

Again, apologies for the hassle, and I hope to take care of it soon.


Since I’ve quit the Smokin’ Clams (a fine band indeed – they just didn’t want to play as often as I do) I’ve been happily catching up on my other hobbies (eating popcorn and watching TV). So I was very happy when I got a message from an old bandmate of mine from a pre-Clam band I was in. “Hey,” he said. “I was wondering if maybe we could get Hippie Go Lucky back together again to do a set at a street dance this summer…” Yay! We’re gonna have a few rehearsals between now and July, polish some of the old stuff up a bit, and generally have fun! First rehearsal is tonight, and I’m really looking forward to it!
