I apologize to the small contingent that follow this blog for any flaky feed behavior over the past few days.
I’m in the process of changing my web host from HasWeb to Dreamhost on the advice of a number of colleagues who have recently adopted Dreamhost as their provider of choice. The biggest advantage is that you can host any number of domains you desire from one account rather than having to purchase additional accounts to support new domains. Additionally, I am gaining greater bandwidth and storage capacity than I previously enjoyed with HasWeb. This is important as last month I somehow managed to exceed my bandwidth allocation which I found interesting given the low traffic this blog sees.
Anyway, this has not been a painless procedure. I managed to transfer my web files and blog database with the assistance of my colleague Tim Haroutunian, and the Dreamhost One-Click Installer installed WordPress 2.0.4 without issue. However, my theme refuses to generate a feed so I had to select another theme until I can fix the problem – which accounts for the new look on the site. The Pirates of the Caribbean feel of Dapit Hapon 1.1 by Gail Dela Cruz is growing on me.
Additionally, I am being required to learn more of the command line interface via SSH. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as I really should be more fluent in this area, but to be honest it is sucking up a lot of cycles and I’ve few to spare right now.
