Around the Internet Kitchen – Hosting Woes
I would like to think of myself as a fairly patient person. I hardly ever raise my voice and I usually give people/companies way too many chances before I give up on them. In fact, Betsy has mentioned on many occasions that I’m no fun to bicker with because I don’t really get mad… But let it be known. I’m officially giving up on my hosting company – Godaddy.
It’s not that their support is bad. I can usually talk to someone in a reasonable amount of time and that person is normally very pleasant. The problem is though that their services just aren’t up to snuff. At some point, even if you are pleasant, I shouldn’t have to be calling you every week.
I get about 4 or 5 emails a week from people saying they get errors when they come to Macheesmo.
At least once a week, my database connection will drop (and no it’s not my Internet connection GoDaddy) and I’ll lose what I was writing.
I’ve given them the benefit of the doubt for too long. But I’m sick of it. Even if it means I have to pay more… I want something that works.
Let’s talk about more pleasant things.
How about some links!
Rising Health Costs and Food – I’m not expert on health care, but it does make sense to me that addressing diet/food should be at least a part of a health care plan. Get people healthy and they’ll need less health care right? I think that might be a bit simplified, but it couldn’t hurt. (@ La Vida Locavore)
101 Simple Salads – Good Lord! This is quite the list. Some of the salads on this list are very simple with just a few ingredients. Some are more substantial. All of them would take less than 30 minutes to make I think. Heck. You could just generate a random number and dinner is served! (@ NY Times)
Bacon Wrapped Strawberries – Is it healthy? I have no idea. Probably not. But I bet it is delicious. I reckon I could put down a pint or two of strawberries without a problem if they were wrapped in bacon. (@ Pete Bakes)
Simple Sourdough Starter – This is a world of bread making that I haven’t ventured into yet. But have no fear… I will very soon. I’ve definitely never heard of this method for a starter before, but seems to work! (@ Ruhlman)
Have a good weekend everybody!
