Pacman them resources! November 16, 2006 3:25 pm

Apparently our websites have been eating enourmous resources on the shared server that does our hosting. The end result is we were flagged to "go away" or buy a dedicated server. It could be the live plugin that I enjoyed so much or it could be my experiments with this website or a combination of both. The idea of jumping from $20 per month to $100 per month to host a bunch of websites that don’t a dime really disconcerned me so, bye bye, live plugin. And that image manipulation stuff has to get gone too.

Oh! I installed the live plugin after you talked it up, and I’m betting it is a pacman. I wondered why my hits had skyrocketed while my visits hadn’t.

Sure it’s obvious in retrospect….

It’s a shame. I really liked the live plugin 🙂

Well, at least there’s still the subscription plugin.

Ultimately, I still want to end up on a dedicated server where I can do anything I want.

That would be nice.
