Lessons in Crappy Customer Service, or Why I Ditched 1&1 Hosting

Sat, 09/03/2011 - 17:59 -- Doug

The Eight Hour Lunch Web site had been running slowly for quite some time. I was getting "out of memory" timeout errors, simple pages were taking forever to load, and things around here were generally painful to deal with. I knew it wasn't my fault--my settings were as good as I could make them. So I decided to talk to 1&1, my hosting provider.

Drupal 7 and EHL

Sat, 08/20/2011 - 16:55 -- Doug

I know it's going to drive me crazy, but it's time to finally get off my arse and upgrade to Drupal 7. Here's the plan:

  • Create a stable clone on the home dev server
  • Test the upgrade.
  • Swear a lot. Oh wait. I guess I did that first. 
  • Try it in production. 
  • Swear again. Lots.
  • Sucess!
  • Have a drink. Maybe two. 

I really want to get the site back to some semblance of life again. I miss podcasting and blogging a bunch. What I dont want to do, though, is get all fired up on content and fall two versions behind.

Heidi will tell you that I'm not one to get creative in the kitchen. She's got the talent, and I'm ok with that. But I think I did ok with this little invention. See for yourself...
