The Purple Parade is marching in full stride to the beat of that 'other' drum we all hear, but generally ignore.

QuoteMeaning no disrespect, as we all do this as a hobby and I for one greatly appreciate the work you do on RHDN, but...You really need to bitch out your host. This is what, the third week in a row with extended downtime? :|
QuoteSometimes, it's not them. It's just something waiting for attention from me that I am unaware of when I may be sleeping, at work, or out. There a few dozen things that can go wrong with a server at any given time. When it is fault of the host, I fight with them regularly and have gotten discounts at times. They couldn't care less. We have changed hosts a few times and we will likely change again when our contract is up. You guys have to understand that few people will provide us the hardware and bandwidth we need for the site at the price we get it at. You get what you pay for in life and you get some sub-par hosting service in the price range we are at. I am not willing to pay any more for the site at present time.Also remember, moving servers is a real time sink and a pain. It takes quite a few hours to provision and configure a LAMP server, move the site files, sync the two, and switch. If you have any hosting options that will provide us with 1.5Ghz/1GB RAM/60GB HD/850GB bandwidth/ for $21/month or better, I'd be happy to look at them. Ideally, we'd like to do better as we make several compromises to run within our limits as is. You'll find available options are few at this price range.
QuoteThey are 2-3x more expensive for the hosting options we need.
