The deed is done. Not since I switched from a home-built ASP-coded blog to WordPress has RandomConnections undergone as many radical changes. None-the-less, here you are…the New and Improved™ RandomConnections!
I finally got completely fed up with my old hosting company, AccuWeb Hosting. The service was locked down so tight that I couldn’t use even common features on WordPress. I had to do work-arounds to get things posted, and that was a pain. Yet, even though they had everything locked down so tightly as to what and where you could post things, they somehow couldn’t keep viruses off of their servers.
I knew I was on an older version of WordPress that had some vulnerabilities and limitations. However, when I asked my hosting company about migrating to a newer version of PHP so that I could upgrade, they told me I would have to change my service plan and would most likely lose most of my content. I’ve got nearly 10 years of blogging here, and didn’t want to lose any of it, so that wasn’t an option.
