Baseball Bias: RIP

Yeah, it’s official. I can’t solve the database problems, and I don’t know why it constantly craps out every 2-4 days. I think maybe Joomla hammers the ever-loving shit out of it, and let’s face it, I was only paying $3 a month for their service and I guess I shouldn’t have expected too much. I considered moving the database from godaddy to, but the versions are incompatible (godaddy uses 4.0 and otaking is using 3.23)… and it would take a pro db admin to revert it back to an earlier version of mysql.

I want to thank those of you who were on board from the beginning… it was a lot of fun while it was up and I appreciate your efforts. I just wish that something this stupid wasn’t the cause of it. I wish I could afford the $100 a month to get the deluxe co-location server with them with the premium database software or something.

I guess for now, I’ll use it as my writing site or something, because we’re paid through for a whole year. :/

    Hey – just wanted to let you know that all of a sudden I can’t access the Coppermine site. I’m getting a ‘403 – Forbidden’ error. Can you do something about that, please?

    I still want to talk to you later about what I might be able to do to take over that part of the site, because I’d still like to use it for the photos. Thanks.

    Sucks. It was fun and I’ll always appreciate the work we did on it. You’re still a reference on my journalism resume and BBB is listed in my body of work.
