I can’t make this stuff up.
I can’t make this stuff up.
A couple of years ago we started this blog running on a cloud server with rackspace. The performance was great and the full root access was really a plus. The cost was not. RAM and storage for cloud servers were quite expensive back then.
Then you came along. After following several ads we saw from fellow bloggers we thought why not give it a shot? For $90 a month including a domain name wasn’t a bad price at the time for a wordpress blog. Of course back then 2011 you were still using your old interface for web hosting. It sucked but we made it through. Less system administration gave us more time to be creative and produce content our readers and followers would enjoy.
Since you had such a great thing going, you decided to change your entire interface and be cool with the “Plesk” kids. Not only did you make a horrible experience even worse in regard to web control panels but you made it more difficult to use. Before I forget, I just wanted to thank you so much for NEVER responding to any of my support tickets, never talking to anyone on the phone and largely being about non customer oriented as you can get. Really thank you.
If you hadn’t been such a terrible service provider I might be writing this nice letter for you and all the world to read. I certainly wouldn’t have taken the time to search for better alternatives for web hosting.
So really thank you again.
After searching the interwebs for a better web hosting experience we came across a company called Vaurent. Vaurent? That name sounds familiar doesn’t it? Certainly it has nothing to do with all this. No of course not that’s silly, what kind of nerd names their company after a fictional solar system in one of those MMORPGs? Well someone did and we thankful for it.
So let’s go over just how our “new” experience was. Vaurent actually had a simple to use interface for their billing and domain name purchases, full root access to cpanel(not full root but good enough) and they actually listen when you ask them a question. Oh and by the way, they don’t cap the upload limit to their ftp services either. All in all it took us 2 days to move theblitzbit.com to it’s new home hosted on Vaurent.
Since you guys love loosing customers I was also tickled when you left that bad taste in my mouth trying to transfer our domain name. 2 days for something that should take 2 minutes.
Again thank you Domain.com for unacceptable service, no support, and poor customer service.
Thank you Vaurent.
We had hoped bring better news today as we have been busy re launching TheBlitzBit.
Instead we feel we must cover recent events. The tragedy today in Boston was unspeakable. The official story is reminiscent of Jihad, Muslim Major Nadal Hassan butchering his fellow soldiers in Texas, and of course 911.
By the time you read this you have already heard so many different bit’s and pieces of the story it’s hard to tell what actually happened. We won’t regurgitate what we read in the papers today, just the facts.
Two bombs went off during the Boston Marathon close to the finish line. The blasts injured dozen of people, and claiming the life of twelve. There have been 7 other “explosive” devices found throughout Boston.
Fact: 12 Killed in Bombing
A “suspect” is being held in custody, of course they fit the general description. Young Male, Saudi National. We can go along with everyone else and scream terror or we can look at the facts as they come to light. It’s to soon to tell, and we will never know the full story.
False Flag or real terror we do not know. We do know this was a terrible and cowardly act by “whoever” is behind this bombing.
More From Reuters Reuters :
Two explosions hit the Boston Marathon as runners crossed the finish line on Monday, killing at least two people and injuring 23 on a day when tens of thousands of people pack the streets to watch one of the world’s best known marathons.
Boston police also reported another explosion at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, which is three miles from the marathon’s finishing line.
“We are not certain that these incidents are related, but we are treating them as if they are,” Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis told a news conference.
Boston police said two people were killed and 23 injured in the explosions on the marathon scene.
Two high-level U.S. law enforcement officials said one or more bombs were responsible for the explosions.
“It sounded like a sonic boom. I haven’t stopped shaking yet,” said Melissa Stanley, who watched her daughter cross the finish line four minutes before the explosions.
A fireball rose from behind spectators and a row of flags, video posted on the New York Post website showed. Other pictures showed blood stains on the ground and several people knocked down.
Massachusetts General Hospital was treating 19 victims of the explosion in its emergency room, six of them in critical condition, a spokeswoman said.
Witnesses said two explosions hit as spectators were cheering on people finishing the Boston Marathon, which was first run in 1897.
Reporters in the media center heard two blasts.
Mike Mitchell of Vancouver, Canada, a runner who had finished the race, said he was looking back at the finish line and saw a “massive explosion.”
Smoke rose 50 feet in the air, Mitchell said. People began running and screaming after hearing the noise, Mitchell said.
“Everybody freaked out,” Mitchell said.
Ambulances, fire trucks and dozens of police vehicles converged at the finish line.
U.S. President Barack Obama was notified and directed his administration to provide whatever assistance was necessary, the White House said. Obama was being briefed by Homeland Security Adviser Lisa Monaco and other staff, the White House said.
Authorities tightened security in Washington and New York.
“Blood everywhere, victims carried out on stretchers. I saw someone lose their leg, people are crying,” the Boston Globe’s Steve Silva reported from the scene, the Globe said on Twitter.
Hundreds of thousands of spectators typically line the 26.2 mile race course, with the heaviest crowds near the finish line. The blasts occurred more than five hours after the start of the race, at a time when most top athletes were off the course but slower amateur marathoners were still running.
The transit agency shut down all service to the area, citing police activity.
Ambulances arrived on the scene within minutes and runners and spectators could be seen crying and consoling each other.
The Boston Marathon has been held on Patriots Day, the third Monday of April, since 1897. The event, which starts in Hopkinton, Massachusetts and ends Boston’s Copley Square, attracts an estimated half-million spectators and some 20,000 participants every year.
Earlier on Monday, Ethiopia’s Lelisa Desisa and Kenya’s Rita Jeptoo won the men’s and women’s events, continuing African runners’ dominance in the sport.
We leave parting banter with a few tweets from both sides of the coin..
