I finally got my blog back online today. I will now have to go back and document all the projects I’ve worked on since it went offline last August.
The short version of the story is I lost my old free web hosting and it took a long time for me to get the hard drive with all my data on it. When I finally received the drive, I was lacking motivation to get the site back online. After trying to get the site hosted at home I finally decided I don’t like having to use a non standard port to host my site (Comcast blocks port 80 for home customers). I realized today that my domain name is expiring soon and it’s a perfect opportunity to switch away from Godaddy. I decided to move my domain over to Dreamhost and at the same time I decided to just finally pay for shared hosting for my site. After much mucking around with transfering domains and moving all the blog files and databases over to the new server, it’s finally back online!
I look forward to documenting my projects again
