Since moving to DH, I'm confronted with
I never thought I'd long for a return to my old host (Earthlink), but their overpriced, restrictive plans seem like nirvana now.
So I've got to find a new host and fast. I'm looking at Pair, since they've been Perl friendly for awhile now, and they run Perl 5.8.8. More expensive, certainly, but after the DH debacle, I'd rather pay a bit more and not have to constantly run a canary to verify my sites and email are still functioning. MediaTemple is also on my radar, tho they don't appear to be as Perl friendly as Pair.
If anyone has some recommendations, please pass them along! I'd love to help "Perl bloom", but its obvious that DH is all fertilizer and no substance.
After way too much research, I've jumped to BlueHost, they seem to keep their customers pretty satisfied, and have pretty much everything DH does...except the downtime. BlueHost also has a nifty little Perl package installer to pull stuff directly from cpan; I haven't tried it yet, but it should be fun to play with. But I've still got lots of site xfer chores to finish before then.
BTW, anyone whoc opened a DH account since the 1st of the year is now pretty much dead in the water. And DH's response as to when it will be back up ? "Um, don't know, maybe by the end of the week ?"
I sure hope I get my refund before they go bellyup 8^(
