I don’t like doing this, but I have to vent a little about Dreamhost, my internet hosting service.  The short version is: about every five days the servers go down.  And I mean completely down, and takes anywhere from 4 to 24 hours to sort itself out again.  This isn’t really such a big deal in the world scheme of things, but in the “I’m paying for this?!” spectrum, it means a lot to me.

An anecdotal mistake I made was going to the Dreamhost status blog and posting a terse comment about the frequency of downtime1 after which I was crushed under a deluge of enraged customers spewing at me  “OH BOOHOO MY SERVISE BEEN DOWN FOR 6DAYS I HAVE 167 WEBSTES FAGGOTS!!!11!”  I love trolls, they make me feel so smart for knowing what the little red underline means.

Today is miserably rainy and windy, so here’s an older photo of me eating a Burger Ring and using my “I’m a moron!” smile which I never realize until too late isn’t so much funny as much as moronic.   Nice double chin.

1 Actually, technically I bitched about the fact that they announced on the blog that everything was “back up and running!” when it totally wasn’t and wouldn’t be for another three hours – Mission Accomplished!
