Reading Kevin Muldoon‘s blog post, Why You Need Your Content to Stay Focused, has made me feel rather guilty. I know I have been posting a lot in the Website business category recently, and not very much in the New exhibit category, but that is where I have been spending my time and energy.
When I first started this website, cost was a significant factor for me. Arvixe was well rated, and they offered a free domain name registry with their hosting, so I signed up with them. That was in April of 2014. Unfortunately, in October of that year, Arvixe was bought out by Endurance International Group (EIG), and their service has declined steadily ever since. In looking for a new hosting company, my primary goal was now not cost, but to find a company that was not part of EIG. This proved more difficult than I expected, as most of the names I was familiar with had been acquired. I narrowed my choices down to SiteGround and A2 Hosting, and finally went with SiteGround. They are more expensive, and impose limits on storage, but they pride themselves on their support. After the problems I had with Arvixe support, this sounded good to me.
Sorry for the lack of new exhibits. Following the problems I was having late last month into early this month, I have decided to switch hosting companies. I hope to begin this switch this week. During the switch, this website may be unavailable for periods of time. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but ultimately I hope this switch will be for the better.
While I love Jigidi, and have been solving puzzles on the website for years, I am not thrilled that it uses Adobe Flash. I found a more technologically advanced puzzle website called Jigsaw Planet, but they do not allow hyperlinks, copyrights or any way to take credit for the image, so for the moment I am sticking with Jigidi. If you know of an online jigsaw puzzle website that does not use Flash and allows proper crediting of images, please let me know in the comments below!
Today I created puzzles of another item I feel reinforces the need for this website, the Richie Rich Wallet by Larami. Larami used the same part number and UPC for two variants, a green version and a yellow version. Having photographs of each makes this easy to see, and easy to identify the differences. Enjoy the puzzles!
