End Of An Era

Over the past two years I have been very fortunate to receive free hosting for two of my Web sites, Challies Dot Com as well as Websonix. Today I found out that I will no longer receive free hosting. The owners of the server have decided to no longer offer hosting and have asked me to move along as soon as I can. While it’s disappointing that my hosting will no longer be free, I can’t say I blame the people.

So…I do have plenty of other hosting options available. I am not the least bit concerned with moving the site. What does concern me is the thought of moving Movabletype (the software that runs my blog) and phpBB (the software that runs the Forums to a new server. That could prove to be a terrible headache!

Now that I am going to be paying for hosting, perhaps I have reason enough to add a “tip jar” to my site! Nah. I can’t stand those things. I’ll only do that if I really need to…

So I guess I should warn that there may be some turbulence ahead as I attempt to seamlessly move this site to a whole new server…

On this Sunday he took to the pulpit, read his text, and gave his…

    The Three Greatest Enemies of Marriage

    Marriage brings us many joys. But since it exists in this world and not some other, it also brings its share of sorrows. It is like everything else in that way—there are times we marvel at its beauties and times we lament its difficulties. A divine gift that was meant to be only good is…
