Apologies for the extended downtime, but at the moment, I’m still a man without a host; as it turns out, the company I chose the other night (after five minutes of pissed-off research) isn’t the most ideal match. An astute commenter reminded me about Dreamhost, a company that was actually founded by some friends of a friend, and I’ll be signing up with them this weekend, hopefully getting us back up in time for Monday’s scheduled Cassingle Vault.
The new hosting plan looks like it’ll cost me $190 (two years upfront, with scads of storage and an obscene amount of bandwidth), and of course, anybody who sees it in their heart/wallet to help me defray those costs will have his/her name tattooed permanently on my heart.
In the meantime, here’s the best of what popped up on my RSS reader this week:
