shameless plugs

*Disclaimer: The following post is highly commercialized and over-linked. However, I feel led to “spread the gospel” of WordPress and Jim and his services from Mindstorm. That being said, please read it anyway!*

Craig, aka NuclearMoose over in the WordPress Forums was informed today that his blog was shut down due to the fact that a “PHP blogger script that has run amok and taken over the server resources to the point where the server had to be rebooted.” His host, dotCanada, which I will not link to for obvious reasons is obviously insane. While PHP/mySQL queries probably do spike a server’s resources occasionally, it is not that heavy of a load. WordPress rocks people. Go read the whole story here if you’re interested.

There’s not better time than now either to get your own blog. No, seriously! If you have any remote interest whatsoever, let me know. I can give you a subdomain at my or .net domain if you’re interested or for about $10 you can register your own domain and then we can work something else out. If there are enough takers, I’ll get another great hosting package from Jim to take care of it all for everyone at a nominal fee. Mindstorm hosting is simply great. I couldn’t be happier.

But anyway, the whole point to this was to point out that dotCanada’s services are pointless. Period. Get a real host Craig, and everyone else too! And by the way, WordPress rocks. My thanks go out to the development team:
