One of Those Weeks

“A wiser feller than myself once said, ‘sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes the bar, well, he eats you.'”

The Stranger, The Big Lebowski.

And so it has been for me over this past week. A near fatal car crash jolted my senses, and a database crash has possibly wiped out half a year of my blog posts.

The former incident has taught me to drive more defensively; the latter has taught me the importance of backing up my work.

I have also been seriously considering getting my own domain name and host (something I have been thinking about for a while). This is not a reflection of any dissatisfaction with blogfather Gary – I truly appreciate his tireless work. It is rather a product of the realization that I should be more responsible for this blog. Besides, it is not fair to lump all of the work on his shoulders.

But this entails many decisions, like:

  • What hosting service should I use?

  • What blogging software should I use? I like MT but now they are charging alot of money for a supported version.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
