Argh! Hosting Woes

I do have lots of pics to share from NYC. And a couple of stories. But I’ve been having some technical difficulties that are driving me crazy.

Over the past couple of months, I’ve noticed that my host ( has been REALLY slow. Painfully slow. So slow, that blogging here has become quite a pain in the ass.

It’s sporadic, but has become more and more frequent of late.

Any of you notice any slowness here? Or is it just me and the admin access?

I think I am ready to find a new host. Anyone have any recommendations for a good WordPress host?

There is one picture I have to post. My male readers won’t enjoy it nearly as much as all of the girls who tune in. But I’m going to post it anyway. Because I can.

It’s just an ad I saw while sitting in traffic in New York City. Actually, it was a fairly large billboard-type thing affixed to a building.

Urban Distraction

I don’t usually shoot images for the purpose of photoshopping them. But when I saw this guy, I thought it might look cool to over-saturate (add lots of extra color) the red bricks.

I sort of like the end result. How about you?

  1. Building? There is a building in the picture?
    I think you did a nice job. A pop of color without over-processing.

    The site is recently slower to load. Do you regularly run database maintenance utilities in your WP admin?

  2. Thanks for the picture – nice way to put a smile on our faces! 🙂 I’m taking a short course in Photoshop next year – I envy all the cool stuff you do!

    I had to laugh when I saw you wrote “Because I can”. Yves says that all the time! (Needless to say, usually when he’s doing something slightly stupid…)

  3. To be completely honest, ummm… I didn’t even notice the bricks until you mentioned them. I guess something else caught my eye. 😉

    Every website is impossible for me to load up. We have the junkiest satellite internet ever known to man.

  4. Just like Jess, I didn’t notice the saturation of the bricks until you mentioned it because something distracted me! 😀
