……”it looks up to me?”:http://www.richardandmimi.com/beendown67.html
No, not even close, not even when I lived on “Eddy St.”:http://cornellsun.com/node/24197
“Grandma?” She was never “Grandma”. She was always Sarah to me. And she sold me quite a few quarts of Pabst over the years….
I bought my six-packs of Molson’s from her competitor, Gus the Greek. Every time I went into his store it was (imagine a thick Greek accent)
“Hey blondie, can you get me any `puff, puff’ ?” (while making joint-smoking motions and laughing)
“I could, Gus, but then you’d call the cops and I’d have to borrow my bail from you at 30%.”
“Haha, can’t fool you, blondie. How long before all you guys need ‘shoot-em-ups’? I need to stock up, gimme some help here…”
But I’m digressing to the point of insanity. Insanity, oh, there’s a direction….
But, but…..the totally unrelated point of this bastard is DOWNTIME, and I’m thinking the Donkey needs to move back to Pittsburgh. This site has been down once a day over the past few days, and a week before that and a week before that.
My sites on Pair Networks have been down exactly once, in the wee hours of the morning, Central Time. And prior to that they emailed me a warning that my server was being upgraded to FreeBSD 6.2 and would be down for a half hour or so. Since then, nada. No downtime.
It may not even be downtime at my new DonkeyHut at Dreamhost; it could just be a clogged network, unrelated to them. But when there’s a clogged network on the way to my site at Pair, there are about 6 other backbones one can use to get to my stuff.
So, if it was just a low-traffic blog, Dreamhost is okay. I wouldn’t want to move my business there, though.
But more importantly, somehow, wherever I move, there really need to be stores on the block run by characters like Gus the Greek and Sarah. Anything less doesn’t even come close.
