A Break from politics, and other things

We’re out at the house in Bridgehampton today, taking in an unusually warm day for this late in the fall — 66 degrees and sunny as I type. But the foliage on the trees out front is gorgeous.

Here’s how those same trees looked on 2 Oct.

Expect a move soon

I found a new hosting provider that works properly with Blogger.com. I put up a test blog at hesseldahl.org to check. Overall I haven’t been terribly impressed with 1and1.com and expect to move this domain over to websitesource.com, which seems to have an interface that I can understand as its a little more conventional. 1and1.com has been, well, weird from the get-go. Mail accounts, for instance, are created not based on the name of the account itself, but rather as a convulted serial number naming convention. I’ll be glad to move over to a hosting provider that makes sense to me. That may mean some downtime again, though the Websitesource people insist that won’t be the case. Stay tuned.

Yeah, okay so I haven’t updated in awhile

Blogging is a funny thing. One day you’re obsessed with it, and the next you’re on to other things and neglecting your blogging duties. Of course Blogger’s seeming inability to ftp to my new hosting provider — or maybe its my hosting provider’s fault for not running ftp or sftp properly — kinda took the wind out of my sails. After all the trouble I went through to move over to 1and1.com, I’m actively looking for another host that offers a similarly inexpensive deal for multiple domains. But then I’d have to move everything over again, which is, as we all learned a few months ago, a very big pain in the neck. Exactly why I feel the need to belly-ache about this publicly is beyond me, and to be fair no one has asked about the lack updates. Leave me alone and go watch Strong Bad Email or something.
