Well, so much for JustHost

Yesterday I said we’d have to wait to move the blog from JustHost because there was so much else going on.

It’s definitely true about the so much else. I was trying to post about Life, the Universe, Etc. this morning, but JH was doing its best to prevent that — just as you guys are increasingly reporting that JH is trying to prevent you from commenting or even reading the blog.

It’s obvious that the occasional 502 errors are becoming persistant, obvious that the slight slowness is becoming somewhere between laughable and impossible. Whatever’s wrong at JustHost is progressive and becoming intolerable.

So we’re on our way out. Right now. I don’t know how quickly the move will take place, but sometime — could be as early as later today, could be in the next couple of days — you may experience a slight disruption as we switch DNS servers. Don’t worry about it. That, too, will pass. You shouldn’t have to do anything but wait it out. No need to change bookmarks or to do anything at all. Just give the machinery of the Internet time to point to the new servers — then come on in and raise hell.

And believe me, the new host is so speedy you’ll be dazzled.

    So far when accessing the blog on and off have not yet myself ran into any issues. Will try to post this and see if it makes it.

    Coyote — I’m glad you’ve had no problems. Consider yourself lucky. It appears there are times of day when it’s at its its worst. Early a.m., for instance. Just now I had zero trouble writing and scheduling the blog that gave me such hell this morning.

    But it’s just plain wrong to have any users constantly needing to report error messages or extreme slowdowns. Being here should be fun, not a giant PITA. Not for anybody.

    (And I just now got another damned 502 error. We are so very getting OUT of here. And never looking back.)

    I blame Hillary.

    If she had just used JustHost, she could have had plausible deniability for lost e-mails…
