As some of my 3 1/2 faithful readers noticed, Tom’s Place went offline for a couple of days due to a coding error that conflicted with a new policy instituted by my site provider. This new policy also mandates that my spam catcher is now offline permanently, so now all of your comments get routed to an approval queue. Nuts…. But at least I can read & edit code, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this.
So now I’m debating whether to change hosts or not. I can’t really complain – I’m not paying anything for a free, independent WordPress site, so the restriction policies make a certain amount of sense. But it’s still annoying that no warning is given before stuff happens, and I find out after the fact, i.e., the blog dies for no apparent reason. The decision is tempered with the fact that I’m not posting as much as I used to.
Do I change providers (again), or stay put? As if this is the biggest decision that I have right now…
Work is still busy with more and more projects headed my way with fewer people available to cover what is needed. And this past week, I found out that I’m about to be tagged with a big project with a short timeline that I have had no advance warning on. Just another log on the blazing fire that is my work life. Sigh… I wonder if I can refuse the project… We’ll see.
Hope everyone else is doing well.
