My ISP told me my online store crashed last week because an .htaccess file in my home directory got the server wrapped up in knots. How odd. The file had been there for months. And that hardly explains why the site went down the next day. Also, the system status panel has been flashing a red overload light for days. So Friday evening I scoured the net for a new home for www.internettime.com.
Saturday I signed up for an account with ipowernet.com. $10 a month for 500 MB of storage. They support the Agora shopping cart, so I’m in the midst of coding and loading a new store. Then I’ll reload several blogs and upload 400 MB of content. While I’m at it, I’m converting my former website into a content repository so by this time next month I plan to be managing one giant floating blog.
I can’t hate the ISP I am leaving behind. They have cost me sixty hours of programming and hassles, indeterminable lost sales, and probably some prospects who think I’m out of business. But the word “hate” brings up an image of the Dalai Lama in my mind’s eye. When asked if he did not hate the Chinese, he softly replied, “They have taken my country. Why should I give them my mind?” Retribution is another matter. Stay tuned.
