Fuck you TRIPOD!

I got back at around 9pm last night after buying a scanner for an aunt, and I was bombarded with emails from readers saying that they can't access my blog. I checked and it is true. Tripod, my previous host has killed my blog. Maybe it was because of the huge amount of traffic yesterday. There were around 40,000 visitors. Maybe Tripod wants me to subscribe to them since I've been wasting a lot of their free bandwidth. The sad thing is I can't even get into my server to put up a notification telling readers to move to my new blog url, etc. That sucks. Fuck you Tripod!

Luckily, I have my archive saved in my PC. Within an hour after discovering that my blog was dead, I decided to set up a new blog with Blogger/Blogspot. I have re-posted the recent entries although I doubt the entire archive will be up on the new blog.

So my dearest readers, please spread the word and update your bookmarks and RSS.

IZ Reloaded isn't dead. It is just a new beginning.

Update: Woke up feeling tired after working on the new blog all night, saw my photo tripod standing innocently in the corner of the room, and I nearly wanna kick the hell out of it. I hate all sorts of Tripod now.

Sorry to hear. Looks like everything in the blogosphere's really stretched to the limit... del.icio.us keeps going down, typepad had problems and so on. Since you're getting so much traffic, maybe you should get your own host and get wordpress or movabletype installed. You'd be in complete control then. :)

It must have been because of your da vinci code entry.

your da vinci entry was on digg la. you should have moved from tripod ages ago.

if you want i can host you, cause according to my host, i supposedly have 'unmeterred bandwidth'. i wonder how true is that.

take care man.

So now we know the free tripod service cannot handle 40,000 visitors. I think your new blog will be a hit again. Don't worry.

Yeah! Fuck Tripod! They're lousy. You've stayed with them for more than a year so it is about time to move to a better host.

Actually I've been wondering too how your previous Tripod blog can last so long with the number of visitors you've been getting. So finally the'dam burst'.
