Daniel Andrlik lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia. By day he manages product teams. The rest of the time he is a podcast host and producer, writer of speculative fiction, a rabid reader, and a programmer.

The Ministry of Intrigue may experience some technical difficulties over the next 48 hours or so as I migrate to a new web host. Expect random outages and random errors. Hopefully it should all resolve itself fairly quickly.

This isn’t due to any satisfaction with my current host, quite the opposite. Celphi has actually been really great to work with: great customer service, a simply wonderful control panel and very affordable. This is primarily due to some development projects I have begun in earnest that will require certain server capabilities that Celphi doesn’t provide. So, this will be a bit of an experiment. If I don’t like my new host, I’ll probably be back but this is really looking pretty good so far.

I apologize for any inconvenience.


Well That Was Pretty Fast

Well, I’m already back at my old hosting provider, Celphi. All I’ll say right now is DO NOT EVER use Dreamhost. While Dreamhost offers a stunning amount of storage and bandwidth for the money, they restrict your use of CPU time in such a way that any script-based dynamic site just simply won’t work in the long run through them.

I had to respectfully withdraw from the TTLB Ecosystem because the JavaScript required, which updates my status on it, was causing serious drag at load time for the blog. I no longer shall fight for my meat in that food chain, so the infuriating white screen while you wait for the Ministry to retrieve content shouldn’t happen anymore.

After lots of hard work, some swearing, and lots of patience on the part of my wife, Version 3.0 of this site is now live. It’s been a long journey, but getting it done has been very satisfying.
