So this is one of those stories that is "one thing leads to another". I'll try to keep it as confusing-free as possible.

For about four years now I've hosted my personal domain www.allenspalace.com with Yahoo Web Hosting who was one of the best hosting sites back in the day. For those of you who don't know, in order to have a site, you need someone to host it for you. Its kind of like a real estate company and a house. You have to pay a real estate place to be able to live at that address.

I've been hitting the job market very hard the past few days and I thought to myself: "Hey, hosting my own blog on my site would make me look good!". Normally, I would just forward to this site, but this blog, overall, is not professional and isn't conducive for hiring. I would normally go into a list, but that would take too much time.

So I decided to host a wordtype blog where I can have more freedom, but Yahoo has some seriously pooched mySQL, so I am forced to go to a new hosting site. I found a new hoster and they will supposedly help me with transferring of files and whatnot.

What does this mean to you? It means that sometime in the next week my files will be unavailable, including all audio blogs, images, and executables. They should be back up in a manner of hours if I play my cards right. There will be some downtime, but everything should be back to normal in a few days.

Also, I'm changing the subdomain to this site. So if you're one of those people who are linking to this blog through http://blog.allenspalace.com, then please update your link to http://journal.allenspalace.com. I will be making my new professional blog on the old subdomain, and it will be quite boring for you.

So change your links if you need to. The livejournal address http://allengator86.livejournal.com will remain the same, but the sites that link to it will be different.

All this is just to let you know what's going on, site-wise.
