Damn I Hate Moving

No, not moving from my current SF apartment. Rents got jacked up so far in San Francisco that unless a massive recession hits, I’m going to be in this place until I either buy something or leave the country. In this case the moving in question is moving a site, specifically, this one.
The details are boring, but suffice to say pulling down 400 megs of data from one site and then shoving it back up to the new one takes a good deal of time. And something always goes wrong. One site or the others things you’re some kind of no-gooder and will chop off the stream of data maybe 80% of the way through forcing you to start all over. It’s a blast.
Of course, the big reward in all of this is to be off my crappy old host that loved to go down often and on to a new VPS host, which basically means I spend a helluva lot more (three times as much actually) for a server that only has maybe 100 other sites on it as opposed to thousands. Makes for a faster, more enjoyable Hudin experience. That and it give Maneno (which is coming along quite nicely) a new, solid home that doesn’t crash in the middle of the night when I’m sleeping and everyone who could be using it is wanting to use it.
