Searching for a new host

I need a new website host. I was quite happy with my old provider (WiredTree), however I was recently notified that they have been acquired by another company (Liquidweb). I have read many mixed reviews about Liquidweb and it makes me a bit nervous and would rather look at other options. Let the searching for…

My iMac crashed

Last week my 7 month old iMac crashed and I had to take it in for repairs. I have no idea what happened. It was left on, I came back and it was not working. I tried different outlets, a different power cord, still nothing. When I tried to turn it on, it was making…

Simplify

I made the decision that I wanted to simplify many of the online projects that I am running. With my first week of Uni under my belt, I realised that I need to be able to dedicate as much time as I can to study. It doesn’t mean that I want to close every website…

Dedicated again

I mentioned briefly in my last entry that I had moved hosts, and I wanted to talk about it a little more. In November I purchased a dedicated server. Before this I had two VPS accounts. One for friends and the other for Giraffe Host. At the time I thought it was ideal to have…

Giraffe Host

I would like to introduce everyone to my latest project, Giraffe Host. What is Giraffe Host? It is a free hosting service for personal website owners. I really missed hosting many people and decided that I should just do it. So I did. When I began hosting websites in 2008 with Bubble Hosting it was…

The day the hosting stopped

When I got my very first domain name in 2003 what I really wanted to do was be able to host other people. It seemed like such a cool thing to do, host someone’s site. At the time I couldn’t because the space I purchased didn’t even have cPanel and was so basic. I was…

Assignment 1 [TICK]

Somehow through the craziness that was creeping into my brain (see twitter post) I finished assignment one for both topics (NET102 & WEB101) I was working on. Mind you I was working until 5:30am and I can’t say the quality maintained the same level. It is my fault though and I am willing to accept…

Not so inspired

I am going through a period of low inspiration at the moment (which could be related to playing too much Tomb Raider Legend and Age of Mythology ). I haven’t been able to create any good website designs or art. I know this is a design/creativity lull and I will pull through, it’s just annoying.…

Flick Flick Flick

My Flickr account was being neglected, but I finally updated it with some new images. I think I say this every time I blog, but Bubble is very VERY close to being finished now. I am excited. ^_^ Join Pop while we wait?

May is art month? ;D

I seem to be inspired to make art everyday lately. Some days I feel proud of what I have made, and then other days I shudder at my lousy colouring and try to ignore it and make something better. 8) It’s keeping me busy, and stops me thinking about other things. New Pixels: New Icons:…

Let the shadows sing

How has life been? let me place it into point form. The mouse is gone (yipee, and I did not kill it!). My Nanna had a bad turn again recently so it has been stressful lately. I have been cleaning the crap out of my room and getting rid of 15 years of junk. I…
