Posted 8/28/2006 2:41:08 PM , Select Stage (the other site) To Change...
Score: 0 


Select Stage, which is hosted at WebHost4Life (a terrible web host), is a complete mess.  I decided to host "Community Server" on that server, because...  why not?  It's pretty much a lost cause.

Well, Community Server crashes on that machine all the time.  This is no fault of Community Server.  It is this web host...  Remember, that's the same web host that caused Stage Select to lose about 8 months worth of data because they don't know how to back things up.

The host is SO BAD they won't let you host MP3 files.  I'm telling you, they just don't get it.

So, now I think I'll be trying to find out a new thing to post over there.  My requirements are:
  • Something static or relatively static so that it's hard to break
  • Something where if I lose the information, it's no big deal.
  • Something with a decent page count so that it's worth my time.

Stage Select Mobile is actually a pretty popular set of pages (11th most popular page is mobile news, with 3500 views this month) - if it's not being used by cell phones, then it's being used by search engines.  It needs to be reliable.

Good thought, though.  Frankly, what I should be doing is making a mobile CSS for the main site.
