‘Cos I’m moving on up. You’re moving on out.
Movin’ on up. Nothing can stop me.
Moving on up. You’re moving on out.
Time to break free. Nothing can stop me,
Time’s come to find a new home.
What’s this mean?
Well, not much to you, the reader, nor to my friends for whom I host blogs. Other than a short downtime and then some (hopefully) much better performance.
Basically, I’ve been hosting this blog by the generosity and good grace of my friend Seth, for nearly two years. I owe him a great debt, he’s asked for nothing, and given me space and bandwidth and support. He’s helped me recover from a couple crashes, given me full root access, trusted me not to break anything, and let me monkey to my heart’s content with his server.
Thanks, Seth, and thanks, Jen, for suggesting I start up a blog when all I wanted was a place to park a domain I had hanging around.
But all good things, and all that. I’m hosting a few blogs now, and we’re using more bandwidth, and I need backups and some management tools to handle things I’ve been doing by hand. I got an offer I couldn’t refuse from my friends at http://www.athenahosting.net/.
So I’m picking up and moving this weekend. If you have any problems getting to moronosphere.com this week, it should be short-lived, but let me know about it (click my name down there near where it says ‘comments’ and ‘permalink’, or any-damned-thing at moronosphere.com will get to me).
I’ll post an update when I get moved over, and for those of you whose blogs I host, I’ll let you know before I take things down, so carry on blogging until otherwise advised.
