I am moving the blog to a new web hosting firm this weekend, so there may be the odd glitch where posts seem to be available then vanish as “the internet” updates itself as to the new web server location.

The reason:

I am actually testing the new host to see if they are stable/reliable etc – as I am currently forking out some $600 per month to host a number of different websites and am looking for a cheaper host.

My difficulty is that one of my sites is very bursty so needs a powerful box to cope with a very high traffic load that only lasts a few hours per day. I am experimenting with MediaTemple who bill not by total server capability, but by processor power actually used – which may be suitable for my needs.

Fingers crossed – and it better not break as I want to go out to the Lord Mayor’s firework show this evening!
