Hey! I graduated! No, not from high school or college but from having my first money-earning website graduate from being on a shared server to something more advanced. I started out with a basic website idea and it began to grow. Now I have reached the point where the traffic is just too much for a shared server system, but not yet big enough to be hosted on a dedicated server. The shared server got to the point it was costing me by losing customers. I looked for the best cheap VPS to upgrade to. Dedicated hosting was too expensive, but switching to a VPS was affordable.
Another thing I really like about graduating to having my website on a VPS is that I can have full and complete access to the operating system. A VPS is like having your own computer within a computer. A bunch of customers can be active on one powerful server with a bunch of operating systems sort of partitioned off into their own areas and running totally isolated from one another. The drives are often solid state, and that speeds up things too. » Read more
When planning a honeymoon there were a few things that crossed my husband and I’s mind (hotel, food, and dates) and a few that did not cross our minds. When in Singapore, we thought we had thought of it all! When we got to the hotel, it was obvious we had forgotten transportation. We had to spend a few hours finding the best transportation services in Singapore.
This proved to be a very important thing we over looked. How could we have thought of weather conditions and not thought about how we would get to point A to point B? In the grand scheme of things doesn’t transportation seem to be something that should be of greater importance? It’s not like in New York City where you just can hop in a taxi and be on your way. » Read more
As much as I wish that I could run my business without having to deal with the technical side of things, I just do not have that luxury. Nobody does these days, unless they do everything on paper only, as we all did just 30 years ago. My business partner explained recently that we need to have a backup server so that everything we have data-wise would remain safe.
I do not know the first thing about that kind of stuff, but I am the president of the company and I like to know where my money is going. So, I figured it was best if I pay attention and learn something.
Basically, he said that if the server that we have now goes down because of hackers, viruses or even due to lightning, we have to have a way to restore all our data if anything at all goes wrong. » Read more
I recently informed my parents that i would be moving to Richardson, TX for school, a fact that they are not taking very well unfortunately. They have done their best to try and prevent me from leaving the state for my education but I cannot stop this feeling that’s bubbling up in me, that feeling to move on with my life. I know that I am only 18 but when I found the Richardson TX apartments for rent that were right next to a university that has a program I really want to explore I knew it was going to be the right decision for me.
My parents are having a hard time accepting the fact that I am able to take care of myself. » Read more
I spent the past few weeks searching around for one bedroom apartments for Winston Salem NC. I was staying at this place right near a dirt race track called Bowman Gray. It is apparently important to the history of NASCAR, or that is what the old guy at work tells me. Obviously before they had all of the private planes and such all of the races were held on this sort of track, aside from the hand full of races at the big speedways like Daytona, Talladega and Darlington. At any rate this place is fine on most days, but when they have races it is full of traffic and a lot of the people are the stereotypical Nascar fans. That is to say that they are loud and they drink a lot. In fact some of the people in the neighborhood walk to the races. It is apparently not any use trying to do much else right here when they are racing. » Read more
