digitalBush has a New Home

If you are reading this, then you are viewing the site on a new host. Over the past month or so I've had some serious issue with my previous host. I would reveal the name, but I'm still in the process of moving my personal and a few client websites from there. I'm just not going to risk anything happening with those while I migrate things over. Here's how bad it had gotten according to my pingdom account:

The odd thing is that everything has been excellent up till the point when it stopped being, uhhh, excellent. Technical support failed me over the course of a couple of weeks and I just gave up. I demand better for this silly blog of mine and my clients demand even better. I've managed to age a few years in a month's time.

I'm done with shared hosting. This blog is now hosted on a VPS at linode.com. Now I'm back in control of a few things and that makes me a little happier. I don't really enjoy being a sysadmin, but I do enjoy having control over the software and the ability to scale my VPS up if needed. Right now I'm running a base 360MB plan. We'll see how well that holds up to this blogs modest traffic.

Please let me know if you see anything weird.  I'll post an update later once I've had a chance to see what this little VPS can do.
