    Same old song and dance

    It has been many months since I have had an opportunity to post here; off doing other things in life. As I scrolled through the posts this evening I was struck by how much of the dialogue centered around the same old issues: poor customer service, hosts which are here today and gone tomorrow, hosts which try to sell you the world for a song, 13 years olds running business out of the high school lab, newbies looking for a pearl of wisdom or a magic wand. I could go on and on. I scrolled down the first page and I the only poster I recognized was good old WatcherTVI. I thought to myself: the names may have changed by the gripes are the same.

    What can be done to end this? I'm tired of the same old song and dance.

    It has been like this for quite some time. Everyone is complaining about every host in the world, and people are starting to complain about their fellow kind. However, glad you are back - glad you may participate back in the fun again. I have been in WHT for about 6 months now, and I love it. I am sure since you joined over 2 years ago, WHT has grown tremendously. WHT now has over 1,000 simultaneous users on at a time.

    No names mentioned, of course.

    I run into you all too often.

    Long time no see Dan!

    You're right it is a lot of the same things and I really don't see it changing any time soon. As long as there are providers that offer servers for 100 bucks a month you will have someone that thinks they can start and run a business for 100 bucks a month...

    If you could host a new kind of content from your old-fashioned web servers
    and make new money from your customers and differentiate your business all at the same time... could you afford not to try? See the new site

    Is schoolwide one of your customers? one of your companies? one of your projects?

    Such is our life - very changable and in the same way predictable. Everything new is old that had been forgotten.
