I’m doing some Project Euler problems to brush up my coding skills – see if I still have got it. Just like riding a bicycle years later, I think years of training in the past had not left me yet. Just like cleaning up and oiling the old bicycle, I found myself trying to setup the coding environment again.
I am giving WordPress.com a try. Why, you ask?
Warning, this is the start of my 2 seconds rant:
I’v been hosting my personal blog with @bluehost for >5 years now so you would understand how disappointed I felt when my blog (and website) started to go up and down all the time! I enquired and was taken on a wild ride with their Service Desk and Technical Support people. I was told to get a developer to look at my site or upgrade to one of the Bluehost’s new 100% super fast plans. I am not running a business so that was out of the question. I picked them years ago because their plans were suitable for personal hosting. I tried to reach out on Twitter too. Until today, the issue is unresolved and like other frustrated customers, I gave up chasing them. I work in the IT industry so I can call BS when I see one. It’s not a nice feeling to be “handled”! 😱
That was my 2 seconds rant to the rest of the internet because the target audience does not care to listen.
