David Kaufman noted consternation with ... >>Our friggin hosting provider! Thusly: >>First, while we get a measly terabyte of bandwidth per month (not that >>we need or use most of it) now they go and offer ten terabytes per month >>free on new servers -- bitches ...what about us? And: >>THEN! While I must've wasted three solid *weeks* of my life this year >>remotely installing one, then a second, Debian-based operating system >>new evolt servers from the Planet because they had at some point simply >>decided to quietly drop offering Debian on new servers, now they go and >>flip-flop on that decision in a big way, and now they are offering >>Debian 4 (etch), 5 (lenny) *and* Ubuntu "8.x" and "9.x"! (pre-installed >>and free of cost (of course)). Can you believe the nerve?? Ouch! Oh my. The 'cost' of being a technology leader I suppose. ;-) >>(Now if we could just get our shit off the old Debian sarge box (and >>onto our new box (before, you know, we run out of money & stuff) well >>that'd just be just great too.) Excellent point! Uh Yeah, I had been wondering about that ... but kind of afraid to ask since my guess was that maybe nothing was going on. Ya know - if there is any simple little thing (oohing and aahing over the pretty lights, maybe?) that some old luddite can help out with - lemme know and I will try to do that! Thanks for your effort Dave! Sincerely, RonL.
