Server Migration Pains Durable Link to this BLOG
I am migrating a database server (Microsoft SQL Server) from ReadyHosting to a new dedicated server on ServerBeach. Please pardon any errors you might encounter.

ReadyHosting have been a discount hosting provider for me for many years (like $100/year or something!) but apparently it has now been sold, and the new guys are saying my configuration is incompatible with their setup. Grrr.

And the ServerBeach costing $199/month has been nothing but pain. So far I am blaming all the hardships on Microsoft, but my patience is running very thin...

I am also experimenting with this new integrated text advertising scheme from Kontera (who recently got VC funding from Sequoia Capital). Somehow Kontera and Yahoo seem to be buddy-buddy, and I don't know if it will affect our AdSense or Google PR.

All that's bad news.

The good news is that I am buying a nice server to accomodate the bunch of newly added Indian blogs and to host the spider. I have many many apps in the works. Examples:
• Email a picture and recieve a PhotoQuilt
• Request high-resolution pictures
• Request bigger versions of all of our 12,000 or so pictures
• Recieve Indian language contents (much of which is not suitable for web) as outlined in Computing via Email entry many years ago.
• Content Managed Comments
• Perhaps Contnet managed Discussion Forum

This is how I surf the web. Turns out creating your own start page beats all portals, back-flipping, personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
