Intertwingly.net is moving to DreamHost. I’m sure that every one of my scripts has hard coded paths or depend on the server being in EST/EDT or will otherwise break for unanticipated (but in retrospect entirely obvious) reasons. I don’t believe that I will lose any email in the process, but you never know.
My @apache.org email address will not be affected by this move.
More context on the urgency. I believe that the author of that piece (a) draws a conclusion “our information is likely more secure in the hands of a giant MegaCorp” based on a single data point, and (b) neglects to make the most important point, namely “have good backups”.
As for me, I believe that everything I have on CornerHost I have replicated elsewhere. If not, I certainly will be finding out soon. After all, this is not my first host.
