Okay, I switched web servers! Hopefully everything in the archives made it over to the new kvance.com
. From now on, I'm going to keep website updates on my site news
instead of on this LJ. But you can still follow them at kvdc_news
on LJ, or my catch-all Multiblog
There's still so much more stuff I want to do to that website, but I'm relieved that I've finally made the switch and now I can redo my priorities again.
can't you like.. make it so that the RSS feed posts make it onto here as well? use your python skills to write a cron job to do it, or something.
also, what server did you switch to?

I guess so, but it's more work. And I don't want my LJ credentials on my web server, so it's not even straightforward, I'd have to run it from my own computer or something.
And the fact is, I only made 1 LJ post last month
. I still want to use LJ, but the community has been shrinking steadily and that's made me feel like I should be diversifying.
I switched from a Hurricane Electric
vhost to a GeekISP
vhost. I liked he.net, but I wanted to try writing my website in python so I had to move. So far, it's been pretty good. I've had to send a few emails to the admin and he's been very quick to help me out.Edited at 2009-07-19 05:57 am (UTC)
To clarify, I'm still posting here. But I'm not going to write stuff about how I changed the license on some project from the archives or added a new category or something.
How do you like GeekISP? I've been using 1and1.com for a while now and while they are cheap their email is not the greatest. I've had people complain that my mail has bounced a message a time or two.
What I need is an absolute rock solid mail server that will let me check mail over the internet as well as through my chosen email program. It looks like I would need their 10 dollar a month plan to be able to host my sites.
I've been told to stay away from 1and1, though I don't remember about what specifically.
GeekISP is so far so good. I switched my mail to them last week, and as far as I know I haven't lost any messages. And it does have webmail as well as regular old IMAP.
They are serious about the geek part though. For example, adding a new domain to your vhost: you log in to your shell account and run the control_apache script, as opposed to clicking around some web interface. To me, that's an improvement, but it might not be for you.
