For a long time I thought my life was too interesting to be condensed in 140 character bites.

Then I got keyboard lazy... (Boy do you know how much you can actually do away from you keyboard... especially in L.A.!!! :>>)

Anyways, if you're into that kind of thing, follow me on twitter!

I'm hooked on imported foods and cherry flavored antacids... :(

Stereophonics USA tour

Stereophonics have just annonced their US dates for their Pull the Pin tour!

L.A. on September 16th. Cool! I was afraid it would conflict with BlogWorld.

All set up...

All set up...
All hotel rooms should come with the bare essentials!
All set up...
900 WATTS UPS, should be enough...

All right, almost a week into California: I got my cargo shipment from France, I unpacked it all, I bought the missing pieces at Fry's (like US power cables and a 110 Volts UPS) and transformed my dining table into a compact geek desk.

Only thing missing is a proper internet connection. However, I have my AT&T line set up and they tell me DSL will be activated tomorrow. I also hope I'll get the broadband router in the mail, otherwise it won't be of much use.

After that, no more excuses: I'll have to work again!

Until then, and since the WiFi just plain sucks (as always with shared WiFi), I guess I have no choice but to spend another day at the pool...

Testing web hosts...

Lately I have been re-testing most of b2evolution's hosting partners... As the number of hosting test sites grows though, it takes days just to update the testing software on all of them. I guess I'll have the automate that ;)

But that's nothing compared to writing and updating the webhost reviews: I can hardly handle more than one a week and still do it seriously. And that I don't think i'll ever be able to automate :(

Finally it dawned on me that an increasing number of potential users don't even have a clue about web hosting, what it is or exactly why they need it. I started by writing a short intro to web hosting, but I don't think that's enough, especially for people who "just want a blog". Educating them about webhosting is a long an windy road... and I'm wondering if it wouldn't be easier to just host the blog for them... :roll:
