My hosting service experienced some major problems over the weekend. Perhaps this site went down for a short while; perhaps it didn’t. Oh well. It’s up now, and everything seems to be working just fine, and that’s worth the $10 per month I pay for hosting. Then something wonderful happened.
You see, I learned about the system problems from the e-mail that my hosting company sent me. In that e-mail, which informed me of a problem I didn’t know I had, I learned that my site and e-mail had all been moved to different server boxes. Okay. Fine. Now I have to update all my e-mail programs and my FTP bookmarks. I guess I’ll manage.
But there at the bottom of the message was a surprisingly generous piece of news. For the trouble they caused me, my hosting company decided to upgrade my account. So, for $10 a month, I now have unlimited disk space and bandwidth. Forever.
Wait for it.
(Oh, and I completely redesigned the site. Blah, blah, blah. I do that all the time.)
