Atomic Bombshell


July 24th, 2008

My lovely web hosting provider (iPower) moved my site to a “new and improved” server, and in the process screwed up my blog beyond all recognition. Had you noticed my site was down for a month? In the end I had to fix it myself, but half due to principle and half because I was too busy, I tried making my host fix their own mess. Bad idea!

Many weeks went by with no solution, just a few rounds of help desk ticket volleyball where they tried to blame me, and I reminded them everything was working fine before they screwed around. Lucky for all of us, I made back-ups of everything. While I’m pissed enough to switch hosts, everyone seems to have horror stories about every halfway decent hosting company, so I don’t know if I’d come out ahead.

Oh well… What matters is the Bombshell is back!

    Nice to see you’re back. Hey, if you are “pissed enough to switch hosts” check out ICDSoft ( ). I’ve been using them for almost 5 years now – since October 2003. They’ve upgraded the server my site is on twice and the only thing I noticed each time was that my site rendered a bit faster. And for $6 per month the first year and $4.80 per month for every year after, it’s pretty cheap as well.

    I would go after them for a one month comp. Glad to see you back.

    That blows. I’d totally get my money back and move to a new host. But that’s just me. xD

    I’m sorry but if they mess up something THEY did… THEY should fix it!
