well, the crisis is averted. as you may have seen in my previous post, my main email ( dave \at\ strawberryrd \dot\ com, went down as i changed mail hosting. and while none of this relates directly to weddings and pretty pictures as such, it is a little insight to the headaches and hassles of running a business that relies to heavily on internet and technology. a few days ago while updating my old blog some file somewhere got corrupted and crashed the whole blog. at that point i was done with wordpress (pretty much the industry standard for blogging). it was a chore to blog, backing up was terrifying as you were dealing with server based databases, sql and a host of other things i didn't want to have to learn every time there's an upgrade or update. i made the choice to move to a single solution provider called squarespace.com and i have to say, as of this moment, only having been a customer for a few days, i think we will have a long happy relationship. i know i'm off topic here, but i wanted to share with you in a simple diagram all that i've learned in how the internet, email hosting, and well, everything technology works and how i get my information to you. feel free to copy the image and save it if you ever need it for reference purposes!
