I’ve stressed to my readers time in and time out on all of my blogs the importance of when you decide to go online to DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Whether you’re purchasing a new computer, computer parts, a car, or whatever you should research that product, research the company, research their customer support. I tell the same thing to all the people out there looking to go online with their business. I tell them that when you’re looking for web site hosting look up the company, look up what they stand for and how they do business. Not doing so is just asking for trouble. I know when I first moved my business online I was naive and just looked for a manageable price on everything. Then turns out the company that I went with was impossible to get a hold of, their server wouldn’t allow me to upload via FTP, and .htaccess files were not allowed so I couldn’t run the types of sites that I wanted… needless to say I didn’t stick with that company for very long (I won’t say who it is because from what I’ve heard they’ve changed since, but I still hold a grudge so will never return to them. It’s one of the mega super hosting companies)
ugh! Formatting = teh failz! jeez… I really REALLY don’t want to do this right now. Some of you may remember that I upgraded to a RAID 5 array well in doing so I moved from three individual hard drives to a “single” RAID drive. Which created all sorts of problems ESPECIALLY with Adobe products. Don’t ask me why but once you install an Adobe product (be in Reader, Photoshop, or anything else) the installation path is forever remembered and freaking ridiculous to get rid of. Even though I uninstalled everything from the other hard drives after ghosting the C drive to the new array now when I go to reinstall some of this stuff it won’t let me because I can’t specify an installation path and the old path is forever ingrained…
So the plan has been to uninstall everything, make backups of the information that is important, and reinstall the OS… don’t really want to wait on it for too long, but I think it’s going to have to wait until after I’m done at LifeTouch. I just don’t have the energy right now, especially with a newborn around finding the time and energy to make all the backups and what not has been more than a little bit of a pain!
