Benjamin Disraeli: “Great services are not canceled by one act or by one single error.”


No, no, thereĀ is no mistake in the dates, though June 28 was indeed yesterday. šŸ™‚

This quote is actually quite relevant for the services from GoDaddy, my hosting provider. This blog (actually the whole domain, ANDĀ the other domains I have with them, AND all related hosting services!!) only just came back online after beingĀ down since yesterday late afternoon! It took GoDaddy a good 24 hours to get services restored, and still I see ping timeouts.

Being in the services industry myself, I know thingsĀ can (and often will) go wrong, and one can standout by the way issues are dealt with. Well, GoDaddy did bad, very bad in that respect. I called them today asĀ their status page showed all services up and it took the guy on the phone quite some time (and persistence from my end) to realise and confirm that indeed some of their servers experienced problems……sorry GoDaddy, not good enough, I will be looking for anotherĀ hosting provider. The sole reason I ended up hereĀ was becauseĀ Adam CurryĀ providedĀ interesting promo codes in his Daily Source CodeĀ (that was back in theĀ PodShow days, aaaaages ago!)…time to move on! šŸ™‚

Allan Heinberg: “I admit it’s tempting to wish for the perfect boss, or the perfect parent, or the perfect outfit, but maybe the best any of us can do is not quit. Play the hand we’ve been given and accessorize the outfit we’ve got.”
