Hi, everybody! Well folks, it has come down to this: I’m deciding to move my site. No, please. Don’t cry. I’ll still be around. I’m moving my site over to Tripod so the Internet midgits will leave me alone. Actually, it’s more of a bandwidth issue.
You see, this site only allows a daily bandwidth of 15MB. It sounds like a lot, but it’s not when you break it down. According to Geocities.com, data transfer, or bandwidth, is measured by the amount of data that is retrieved by the server whenever you open up a webpage. For example, my Excel Saga section, probably the biggest section I have because of the spiffy background theme. The page itself is only a mere 5KB. But when you load the page, not only is that loaded, but the background theme and the picture are loaded too. Together, it totals a whopping 1,437KB, or 1.44MB everytime that page is loaded. Let’s do the math, shall we? My bandwidth is 15MB a day. That means that in order to shut my site down for an hour, you would have to go to the Excel Saga page at least 11 times a day, and it will only successfully load it 10 times out of those 11. That’s Geocities.com. Tripod, on the other hand, offers a 1GB monthly bandwidth. That’s 33 1/3MB a day on average (if every month had 30 days); over twice the amount of bandwidth of Geocities.com. Now do you see why I’m moving?
Anyway, as for updates, technically none for this site. I spent all day moving all of my crap from here to my Tripod site. It’s not up yet, as I have to change all the hyperlinx and all that happy bulls**t so you can look through my site. Since it took me a good whole day just moving everything, it will be a while before I can link everything together and make the move complete. Which means that it will be a while before I shut this site down.
In other news, my final for XML was today and I think I did good. I won’t know until I find out my grade on it. But, I’m doing fairly well in that class anyway; so I’m not too worried. It’s Day 1 of possibly 3 that I’ll have to wait for my DVDs. I still can’t wait for them to come in!!
Well, I got to go. Later days!
