A painless move of hosting provider - now with Digiweb

I have been with Schmolie/Advantagecom for nearly 8 years but the price has been increasing steadily but inertia set in and I kept on putting off the move. However last night they hit me with a late payment fee (I have been paying monthly for the last few months) and it gave me the impetus to move - first late payment in 8 years !

So this morning I signed up with Digiweb for a cheap package and had my account setup this afternoon. I uploaded my site to my digiweb account and changed my dns records - this turned out to be a very fast process and I was receiving mail on my new "server" within minutes.

Digiweb's control panel has some quirks but seems ok, I configured the Blackberry no probs to take mail fom digiweb and in fact its much easier as you get a proper mail server address and logon atehr than the bodging necessary with advantagecom.

Who knows next I might move the blog there...

BBC v scientology

BBC in the shape of Panorama are having a spat with the scientolologists at the moment and it would appear that they are rustling up their considerable powers to hit back at Panorama. BBC report which talks about how the reporter and his family were follwed and intimidated is here Interesting youtube video showing interview with a top scientolologist here "I'm angry, real angry" just because scientolology was called a cult...

We should withdraw from the Eurovision !

Flaming Nora - no votes from the UK. Votes only from Malta. No votes from the Baltics even though we provide their migrants with jobs. What the heck Estonia gave 12 points to Russia even though they are fighting with them.

To me it seems like the Serbian mafia have rustled up support for their folks. We voted for France as it was such a piss-take and I also thought Lithuania was good but the Moldovan singer had a nice costume....

The voting is a good way of seeing what country has what economic migrants or political ties..

God Bless Terry Wogan "at least the UK didn't come last, that was left for Ireland..."
