I thought that I’d be able to wait a couple months to move Webfeed Central, but it looks like I’m not going to be able to wait that long. The problems that I’ve been having with FTP, mail, and the stylesheet not loading doesn’t seem to be getting any better. In fact, the problem seems to be getting worse.
I had “slowed down” posting over there, just to try to “not” create any more traffic at the site. Even by doing that, the problem persists. Within the next week or so, I plan on moving the whole site to a different server. I’m going to “try” to do this, without any help, but I’ve never had to move a complete site of this size, before, so I’m sure it’ll be an experience.
The strange part of this whole problem is that the Webfeed Central domain is the only site on the current server that’s having any problems. All of the other web sites, FTP, and mail seem to be working just as good as ever. It’s almost as if the hosting company that I’m using is “throttling” the domain, since mail and FTP seem to stop working during “peak” hours. I have no proof, of course, and even if they are, I don’t think I really want to know.
I’ve temporarily disabled some of the higher bandwidth files, in an effort to make things work a little better, overall. Right now, I can’t even get in to make or edit any posts, over there.
EDITED: I’ve re-enabled the higher bandwidth files, since disabling them seemed to have no effect on whether the site worked right, or not.
I just tried to edit a page (the link blog), here, and after I clicked on “save”, I got a message that said “You are not allowed to edit this page”. I’m mainly posting this, to see if it’s going to block me from posting, too. I’m also writing it for the fact that if this “does” get posted, I’d like to see if other people can edite pages on their WordPress.com blogs.
I know that they went through some upgrades, last week, and I haven’t tried posting anything, since. I also know that the services is free, so I’m not going to cry if they killed something, here. I just hope that I can get the problem fixed. I actually “like” having this extra place for posting things that I don’t really want at the main site.
I’ve never been much into the whole conspiracy theory things, but over the past few weeks I’ve started watching and listening to some of the “black helicopter” stuff that’s out there. I have a pretty open mind, though, and I found it pretty surprizing that a lot of the things that they talk about actually make a lot of sense.
I know that there’s not one single thing that “I” could write to change anybody’s mind about these types of things, though. All I can say is that I have a much broader view of the world, now. There’s a 6.5 hour movie that can be downloaded (here’s the torrent file) that I would suggest watching, if you haven’t seen it, already.
