The latest on my web hosting situation: I've decided to use Dreamhost.com. Holy shit, they are so much cheaper than Earthlink. Many thanks to those of you who gave me suggested hosts. It was a great help.
The good news is that my new URL will be www.knittingcurmudgeon.com. For the time being, the blog will stay here, at www.knitzme.blogspot.com, so don't be typing in that URL until I say so, OK?
With every crappy situation comes new opportunities. Registering knittingcurmudgeon.com means that I really own the name now. And this will give me a chance to redesign the blog without disrupting it, something that I've been wanting to do for some time now.
I'd do a happy dance but I might choke on my own vomit.
