Remember 24-days ago I said I had it with GoDaddy screwing LOYAL existing customers like me?

In that post I also said I was going to look at template-based, cloud-publishing solutions so I can finally, after 12 years, get away from Microsoft FrontPage.

Having looked at Weebly, Wix and Yola I finally settled on Yola because their price was right (though you do get what you pay for).

For $4.17/month I can get 5 Websites — each with its own domain name (given that I already own these domains).

So for LESS THAN HALF what I pay a month to host ONE (1) Website I can publish and host FIVE (5). I am bit slow on the uptick but it only took me a few days to work out that it was a decent deal.

I spent a few minutes here and there, in my 3rd 11 pm to 1 am shift, looking through their tutorials.

Today at 2 pm I paid my monies (though I could have started with a free account) and started to build the above Website.

A few surprises. What I got was their most basic PAID service, bronze. So they kept on trying to get me to upgrade to Silver. That was annoying. Though they claim 24/7 Premium phone support — that appears to be pie in the sky! When you call it says ‘No Phone Support’! Nice.

I had to visit GoDaddy and edit DNS records — not something I enjoy doing since if you screw up you are in big trouble. Then you have to wait for the DNS records to be propagated.

But, by 4 pm I have a PUBLISHED, 3 page Website. It was quick and dirty. But, it was for a 7 year old. I just wanted it up since I first created this Website the NIGHT she was born. So she has had her own, working Website with pictures from the day she was born. I didn’t want to break that and I didn’t. Yes, I deleted the GoDaddy hosting BEFORE I updated the DNS record. I do know my way around. I have been creating Websites and teaching classes on Website design since 2002.

So, Yola?

It is OK. It is the lack of phone support that bugs me — after they claim all over the place that they do.

It is possible that they are in trouble.

Now that I have 4 other Websites available, in this package, I will dash a couple more off over the next few weeks.

I haven’t attended a selectmen’s meeting in a long time, so I am not in a position to comment.

But to see callousness and cussedness finessed you should attend the Alton Central School Board meeting — even when there is no breaking glass!

In terms of sheer entertainment value it was better than going to the circus and much cheaper. That is why we used to go, but not anymore. They succeeded in basically gagging the public. That is another story for another day, closer to the next Board meeting.

I am, however, confused by the statement about recording the meetings! Aren’t they already video taped! Not sure if Mr. Whittmann is talking about LIVE audio streaming maybe on FM. If he is talking about live streaming over the Internet that should already be possible. The School Board even talked about that.

We went to a Drum Ensemble at the Dartmouth earlier this year. As with all things at the Hopkins it was GOOD. Very good. We were so glad we went.

We would go to this in a heartbeat though our Saturdays are now shot because Teischan has her Nutcracker rehearsals.

But, I would definitely urge you to consider. The price can’t be bettered. Enjoy. Thanks, Hopkins.

We will be there TWICE in December.

I Resisted Buying “FKU” But The “Eros” IPO Was Too Great A Temptation.

Though, thankfully, I differ from Oscar when it comes to very important things, like him, I too can resist everything but temptation (though I am getting better).

So when Fidelity told me that I can bid on the Eros IPO — I couldn’t resist. I had money burning a hole in my account since, of course, I didn’t get any Twitter IPO shares. I knew, given my near destitution, that this would be the case. 

BUT, of course, I got the Eros stock because there appeared to be NO demand for them. Shares are already down — which is what always happens with IPO stock that I get! Thanks, Fidelity.

The premise is good. Bollywood. If this household is anything to go by the demand for Bollywood has to grow in time — though it might not in my lifetime. That Deanna and the two kids love Bollywood movies and music cracks me up. With my SkyBox TV we can get unlimited Bollywood media though of late the box is used only for TEN Cricket.

Got another e-mail yesterday where a Sri Lankan was impressed with the German bloody cars that the government had bought for CHOGM (which will then be given, gratis (and for free), to the President’s extended family after the conference, as is the normal practice in 3rd world countries). What can I say?
