The Blog Moves (Again)

Well, finally, I think I’ve got this up and running again. Of course, to do it, I had to move to arvixe.com for my hosting (away from GoDaddy, whose inability to properly host multiple sites on IIS means that it’s time to say GoodByeDaddy).

Now that the blog’s working again, I need to do a bit of work to get the style back to something I like… and then… hopefully it’ll all be nice and tickety-boo.

(I can’t believe I just said “tickety-boo”).

Anyway, a few other changes:

  • My lovely significant other – Darci Morales – has her own blog at justdarci.com now. Hopefully she’ll post something on it, or I’ll need to end up turning it into a resume/portfolio site or something. She is available for consulting work btw 😉
  • My homepage is finally moving from earthlink.net, where its been sitting since about 1998 when I moved to Seattle. (Before that it was on a variety of other sites, and it’s one of the oldest continuously running pages on the web; the first version went up in 1993 IIRC). It’ll save me money ($21.95 for 10Mb of hosting, plus dialup access per month. Woooooh! 1998 prices are awesome. I’m not sure I can imagine anything having an 10Mb!!! quota any more but now you know… And Arvixe has theoretically unlimited space). Anyway, it’s now up on http://simoncooke.com
  • Finally, the bastard who has been sitting on the simoncooke.com domain name let it go. 🙂 ThankyouverymuchI’llhavethat.

More sites, more stuff to follow. But with a bit of luck I might actually be able to get everything up and running this time – without fighting web hosting issues.

I still have paid up until December 2012 for my GoDaddy hosting though. Wonder what I should put there.

Anyway… the Blog is Back! Hello again! It’s been too long!
