Sitting on a New Server
Posted November 3, 2002 4:35am
Yo yo yo mac daddy!
If you're reading this, you're viewing the CoffeeKid site on our new server, part of my company's overall "web strategy" for the long term. We got our own bulk account with a new web host, and let me tell you, things should FLY around here.
One reason why I've been slow to update parts of this site is because our CMS software, called WIPS (web integrated publishing system) was running so slooooow on the old server. It was a pain to edit some pages, let me tell you.
Well, I've only been surfing the CoffeeKid site on this new server for about fifteen minutes, and ZOOOOM!
Does that mean the bulk of the Rancilio section will come back? Well, yes... if I can find the time this week! :)
Just a note on our previous web host - those guys are good guys, I've had a long business relationship with them, sending business their way, getting gratis or reduced fee hosting on several sites, me doing ad work for them from time to time, and so forth, and their rates are great, but it got to the point where they could not serve our needs any longer - email problems were frequent, and slow SQL service was normal - maybe it's just buggy or something, or overtaxed, I don't know. Still, I wish them the best, and I want to thank them for being good to us for most of our (WebMotif's) six year association with them.
In the meantime, if you're reading this - welcome to the new speed demon CoffeeKid site :) (btw, post a comment about the site speed, good or bad, willya?)
