HOSTING WOES

Wizbang is moving yet again because his current host is unreliable. He’s moving to HostingMatters, which is what I’m on–along with hundreds of other bloggers including InstaPundit hisownself.

Ironically, this on a day when CalPundit was down all day owing to a “combination of host problems and Movable Type fragility.” His host: HostingMatters.

Annette, one of along with some other fine tech support folks at HM, “spent 8 hours trying to get MT to release data needed to make a full restore and attempting to massage the data to get it to import properly.”
