[Note: This post is now obsolete as we have moved!]
Finally we have life.
Apologies for the lack of updates, and the fact that the whole site was down for much of the weekend. Every single site hosted by 123-reg was down at some point, some for longer than others, and even when the site has been up for the last six days, I have been unable to access it to write anything.
So the news is that The Beautiful Groan will shortly be moving hosts. I’m not normally one to criticise companies but the way 123-reg are run is absolutely shocking. They are unreliable, uncaring, and their customer support is beyond a joke. Expect to wait at least six weeks for a reply to any email.
A word of advice folks – avoid them at all costs. I can recommend this site for examples of exactly why.
Why the move matters
I will post again before making the final move, but with it, the site will have a complete overhaul. It will be moving to WordPress, and so any RSS feeds will need updating. I am also expecting an improvement in performance – this site currently takes ages to load, and for that I apologise.
The domain itself will remain unchanged.
Bear with me – life after the move should be a vast improvement.
