GoDaddy Is A Ripoff

I’ve recently been growing disgusted with GoDaddy. The speed of my Drupal site has slowed significantly, their SSH is a joke with only a few available commands (at least on shared hosting).

But recently this burned me up, I was renewing seven domain names, and without my permission GoDaddy forced me to use the bulk domain registration, which supposedly would save me $1 on domains. Since my order was over $50 I was entitled to use a 20% discount, but because I already had the unrequested bulk discount I was forced to pay more money.

Currently I’m looking for a new host (hopefully I can get $10/month for a couple dozen gigabytes of space) , so any recomendations would be appreciated.

Virginia Anti-Spam Law Struck Down

As annoying as spam is, I agrea with the Virginia Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the current anti-spam law. The way it was written was a challenge to free speech due to some poorly worded sentences. Here’s what I suggest as a replacement:

It shall be a class 1 [max 12 months, $2500 fine] misdemeanor to send out bulk, pornographic, or fraudulent unsolicited electronic mail messages for commercial purposes. In addition it shall be a class 4 [2-10 years, $100,000 fine] felony to either send more than 10,000 of the before mentioned electronic messages, or have the sender falsely and intentionally identify and impersonate itself with an already existing person or company.

Unfinished Church

The Unfinished Church in Bermuda was designed to be a bigger building for the Anglican Church in the early 1800s. The building program ran out of money and consequently the Gothic church was left unfinished.
