There are some serious problems cropping up with this here homepage / blog. It seems I've become the most popular person on the internet, and so too many people are visiting this site. Rogers is a horrible internet service provider, and can't handle a few hundred people visting per day. Thus, it shuts down every once in a while.
So I need to switch to a better place to host this. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking of Blogspot...but that stupid banner at the top is annoying.
I also just got an invite to Google Pages. It's easy to use - I created this beautiful web site in just 5 minutes - but also seems very limited in what it can do. So that won't do either.
You know why else Rogers sucks? I tried downloading a file through Bittorrent the other day, and it was extremely slow. The thing with Bittorrent is it's supposed to be fast...so I did some research and found out that Rogers selectively looks for Bittorrent downloads and slows them down.
What? I don't remember reading anything about purposefully slowing down certain files when I signed up for Rogers. And they didn't let me know that they started doing this. Is it legal to just suddenly cripple a large part of my internet access without telling me?
It's not like I was even doing anything illegal (at that time). I just wanted to download a patch for a game which I own.
Luckily I found away around it (use uTorrent with encryption), but it really sucks that Rogers would try to control what I can and cannot do with the internet connection I pay for. I really should switch to Bell, but I'm lazy.
Well, this post was probably really boring to read, but I had to get that off my chest I guess.
