Last week I've got a "Premier Provider" merit on my brand new eLance profile (it was created some time ago, but never used until last couple of months).
What that means is I can get more work more easily and for more money.
Just to notify those entering this site. It is not dead, and it will get some updates very soon. I've been busy working on some interesting stuff, even on my own projects like http://vihoco.com lately, so had no time to write here or to translate some of my notes from Russian site. Stay tuned.
These 2 (estdomains.com and esthost.com) looked attractive in terms of payment methods and prices. Actually I even have few domains registered with estdomains and was considering becoming their reseller.
But today they are both down. Whois cannot get information about domains registered with estdomains. I wonder what is happening and what will happen to domains registered with the registrar which is down...
Good I did not moved my hosting from hostgator to esthost.
Russian president Medvedev gave an order to stop the peacekeeping operation in Georgia.
Congratulations to all the people! Although beast isn't neutralized, its "claws" were "cut-off" during the last 24hours, when Russian army roamed Georgia from (military) base to base... Can we call that a "homerun"?
I can't believe the man who gave order to murder thousand, who was ready to ruin Osetia and his own country Georgia wasn't ready to die... It just doesn't comes together in my head. How he can be so much afraid to die, can't believe it.
Also, notice all the civilian traffic on the streets of Gori, looks like that "ruined by Russians city of Gori" citizens are more afraid of their president's shrieks then of Russian bombs.
As Georgian military is attacking, bombing and shelling the South Osetia (Ossetia) territory and civilian settlements and positions of the peacekeeping forces in particular from the Georgian territory (outside of Osetia) Russian military has to shut those sources of death and destruction.
Just a note for my friends overseas. I've checked some informational agency available to the western public, and want to make a short note to answer just this 1 question.
Georgia, a state supported by USA, launched an assault on Tskhinvali, the capital of South Osetia (Ossetia), http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7548715.stm, US, UK and France are moving fleets to the proximity of Iran, (4-6 carrier groups, quite a force) http://europebusines.blogspot.com/2008/08/massive-us-naval-armada-heads-....
The main question is how much will it spread? Will Georgian provocation pull Russia into the war? Will Russia try to escort tankers to Iran and be attacked by the armada going in for the blockade, what will China do in response to the new threat?
It is 1 year since I was choosing the hosting for my 3 sites. Year ago I was digging the net for hours, reading all the forums I could find, comparing plans from dozens of hosting companies and even starting hosting with few of them. That left a tiny scratch in my blog.
Having all the great offers nowadays, I've decided to stay with my current host. That being a hostgator.com.
Hostgator isn't the cheapest, and it doesn't have the fanciest bullet lists around. But when I look on what a website needs I see hostgator gives it all and more for the price, where there is no competition.
