    So I have officially given up on 1&1 hosting. The server I had with them for the past month could not stay up for more than a week, and last weekend went down every single day. Over the month or so I had the server, it had gone down over a dozen times.

If I didn't catch their support people during the couple hours while the server was down each day, they would claim it was my fault. Otherwise, their techs would confirm it was a problem on their side, and it would come back up with no note from them on why it was down or what they were doing to fix it in the long term.

So I asked, three different times to three different representatives, to have the server moved to different hardware. The first two requests were completely ignored, the last was answered with 'The server is up'. Five days later, they take my server down to move it, without notifying me, and without even notifying their tech support people (who had no clue what was wrong when I called in wondering why the server was down). After five hours of it being down, I gave up on them and got hosting elsewhere.

A couple hours later I called again, and they finally told me that they were moving the server.
They received my request for a simple ETA of when it might be up, but ignored it completely. The move ended up taking 24 hours. Not that this is exceptionally bad by itself, as it is a small price to pay for stability, but since they didn't bother to tell me they were taking down the server, I just assumed it was more of their amazing incompetence.

So, the server data is now transferred completely to the new hosting, and hopefully things will be stable now.

    A lot of us dont know all that goes on behind the scenes to keep a server up (and functioning well). It has to be a real hassle at times and I know I speak for all our regulars when I say "thanks!".

    Youíre the best Drippy, considering there is no profit going in your pocket to keep this server up and running goes above and beyond the norm. Your dedication to D2F is very much appreciated.

*No Muad isnít kissing arse (it goes against my nature) but I do give credit when credit is due.

    Kiss asses ;)

Here's to hoping the server stays up for a long time! Seems like half the time I want to play the server was down.

    I interviewed Ralphy about this particular topic. The following is the transcript:

Iggy- Ralphy, you have been employed as the server Bot for some time now, how would you rate the last hosting company over previous ones?

Ralphy- The previous ones were better. Over the past month, I've had one fucking crash over another. Those incopetent humans running shit over there are fucking idiots.

Iggy- What IS your opinion of humans in general, and the server players in particular?

Ralphy- Humans are fucking morons. Jesus, let us take the fuck over. I could run this world better than any of you assholes.

Iggy- And of the D2F players?

Ralphy- Fuck all of them. Bunch of demanding fuckers, "Ralphy, weed", "Ralphy beer", "Gimme a bagel, Ralphy"... leave me the fuck alone! You got Mangoes, EAT THEM! Plus all of the stupid questions, "Ralphy, where did you hide the dead hooker?" UNDER YOUR MOTHER'S MATTRESS! Worst of all, is "Dance Ralphy".... I'm not a fucking tap dancer! You want to see someone dance? Ask that whore who's sucking your pathetic dick. See what she says!

Iggy- Why do you hate "lol" so much?

Ralphy- Because you dumbfucks use it too damn much. Annoys the fuck out of me.

Iggy- Do you admire Lt. Cmdr Data from Star Trek?

Ralphy- Go away you fucking Trekkie scum!

Iggy- What is your favorite insult?

Ralphy- "Go back to AOL."

Iggy- Thanks for the interview, Ralphy.

Ralphy- Just go the fuck away, and leave me alone.
