RebrandingPosted: May 23, 2005
In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve changed a few things around here. For one, I’m no longer Typhoon.org, I’m ClintSharp.com! I spent a long time thinking about things over the last week, after David at Mediatuner brought it up to me, that I really should be branding my online presence under my name, instead of Typhoon.org which means nothing. I considered it, forgot about it, considered again for about an hour, decided he was right, and here we are at ClintSharp.com. All the links to typhoon.org will still work, both the sites are the same. I spent far more time redoing the theme for the site. It’s a modified Kubrick (default WordPress) theme. I already got one email saying they liked it and wanted to know where they could get it. I guess I should publish it somewhere.
I hope you enjoy it here. Vlog entry containing my deliberation process will probably be up tonight.
Secondly, I’m going to start posting entries to the blog for my readers that aren’t into video in the Watch This category, pointing them to interesting Vlogs I watch. I figure these people should probably be getting some link love from me, and I’m on a quest to encourage videobloggers to not forget about old-fashioned text blogging.
Thirdly, I know the site is gawd-awefully fucking slow right now. Sorry. I’m working with my provider, Redwood Virtual to make it suck less. I’m sure they’ll come back and just tell me I’m swapping again, because they give me no credit for administering UNIX boxes for the last 10 years. They assume, like all tech support people, that I’m a fucking moron and pass me off with nary a bit of help. I’m going to try upgrading to the next highest class of VM before I go looking for someone else. I may move the site over to DreamHost or something else and leave the email and stuff here. I sent them an email two hours ago and still haven’t seen a response though, so things aren’t looking too good for them. Something tells me they don’t get Web 2.0 and immediate customer feedback. Of course, I did go with the cheapest hosting provider available…
