[Update: I got a call from the VP of customer service and we chatted. It was a good call and he's totally cool. It doesn't change what happened, but I feel a bit better about them as a whole. They did exactly what ITX did: expand too fast. Too many clients, badly trained employees [...]
We have moved all our sites to our shiny new hosting provider:
Wired Tree Hosting
After multiple outages and shitty customer service at InMotion Hosting, we made the decision to change hosts yet again.

Edit: I did indeed get an iPad2 for xmas and I’m in LOOOOOVE. Pricey, but it does everything I want in one device. -A

This is a large post made up of the smaller posts I made around the intertubes regarding Jobs’ death and its impact on me.
First, G+: “Yah. A man I didn’t know died. And it feels like he was family. Steve Jobs’ vision absolutely changed my [...]
