New Digs, New Name, Same Subject

The web host excuse train has again reared it's ugly head forcing me to make changes that I was hoping not to have make.

You might have noticed the slowing of my posting history of late and if you are reading this locally and not via my RSS feed you also undoubtedly have also noticed my new digs. Both items are related and are a direct result of hosting issues related to my now former blog directory and my soon to be former web host Site5.

After almost 3 years, the aforementioned host decided that my blog directory was behind the slowdown of their server (of course the fact that it is severely oversold had nothing to do with it...) and should be shut down for abusing server resources as a result. Despite their taking my directory down several days ago, the other 2 sites I had hosted with them under the same account and on the same server continued to run slowly and at times become unavailable for extended periods. Noticing the irony of that fact, I made sure to let Site5 know of their server issues to the point where they are surely dreading reading their email.

So to make a long story short, I have decided to rid them of their obligation to host my sites and have shuddered the directory and have moved my blogs (SDHumanists and the archives of Politics and Hypocrisy and A SD Moderate) here to Blogger for what I hope is the final time. I will be tweaking things for a few more days so forgive the mess which unfortunately also includes the loss of many of the photos associated with the older content.

As far as feeds go, I have kept the feedburner feed active so if that is normally how you read my rantings no more changes are needed other than ignoring the sudden influx of posts that you might have come across that was a result of moving to the new domain.

Again I am sorry for all the changes lately but I am hopeful that this will be the final one.
