You host with godaddy then its a fine web host if you have 1 hit a month, very sweet going. If you have above 15,000 hits a month, godaddy cannot survive that. They bring down the website with a 503 and 403 error. Send them a email asking what is the problem, it seems you are sending a mail to dead people. No reply at all. Then I write an email to Bob Parson, President of GoDaddy, it takes him (secretary reply) 3 days to respond.

The reason if asked, given by them is that they cannot reproduce the problem therefore they have no idea what happened, the reply comes after 15 hours after the issue first reported. They send a confirmation email very nicely saying do not reply we will get back to you.

One thing is sure they have very old servers which will not survive a digg effect. Now that is a shame.

This should prove that godaddy is hiring dumb heads and stupids who have no idea what they are dealing with.


The current dashboard for wordpress is not all that great for once reason, is that its far too complicated to look at and it looks all same everywhere.

Can wordpress give an option to users whether new or old dashboard.

the avatars are an excellent idea, BUT

if wordpress could let users know the exact pixel size required for  the avatar then it would be easy to create one, with a pre-determined size.

A decisive 46 percent of the 6,000 people surveyed by travellers' website Where Are You Now (WAYN) said the French were the most unfriendly nation people on the planet, British newspapers reported.

The Germans have no to reason to celebrate the damning verdict. They came second on all three counts.

WAYN's French founder, Jerome Touze, told the papers he had been stunned by the thumping condemnation of his compatriots and sought to blame it on Gallic love-struck sulking.

"I had no idea that the French would emerge as such an unfriendly country," he said.

"I think our romantic 'moodiness' is misunderstood and I will be sure to pass on the message to my family and friends back in France to be a bit more cheerful to tourists in the future."

Italy was voted the world's most cultured nation with the best cuisine, while the United States was named the most unstylish with the worst food.

The British did not feature in the top 10 of any of the categories.

"The British fit in nowhere — good or bad. It appears that we are so completely average that the voters did not include us in any category," the tabloid Daily Express commented.

"And to our shame, four percent of respondents — all British of course — said they would only talk to other Britons when they are abroad."

This unwillingness to talk to the locals appears to go hand in hand with respondents' perceptions of foreigners.

While most said Spain was the foreign country where they would most like to live, they said the Spaniards were nearly as unfriendly and ungenerous as the French.

To add insult to injury, British newspaper The Daily Telegraph put the boot in on Saturday by saying in an editorial that the French stank.

"The French may like to think that Chanel No 5 is their scent but we all know that garlic and stale Gitanes are much more representative."

GoDaddy Servers were down at 10 AM GMT.  None could access their Website or any hosted websites. 

I am posting this eventhough my blog is moved to another location.

I was wondering as to why Atariboy and scobelizer stays on top of blog ranking. Atariboy has blogmad to get a number of hits. now the hits are directed to wordpress.
whereas scoble is a well known face in the tech crowd. The comments are well formated and this is where he gets his hits.

So its not a surprise they are both on top at some point. Currently Scoble is on top.
