The Siege falters


The attacks on this site is wavering. Those stubborn webmasters are finally quieting down, mainly because when I find that they act childish, I start denying access to them. Note that some of the webmasters mean well in pointing out the errors on this site, and for these actions I am truly grateful.

Oftentimes in the course of my ip denials, the whole domain is affected, the consequence of which is that their clients are also denied access to this website. The rod is not spared for this case.

It should be interesting to note that the cgi-based notice of suspension of this site was a very obvious curiosity to some of you, even garnering one of the top number of hits on this site for a single post on a single day.

What really was the cause of the suspension?

The former webhost of this site insisted that the terms of agreement has been broken by this site in having MEDIA FILES IN STORAGE, citing the steaming videos or .mpg’s that you watch. It is a wonder that after so many years of webhosting, this came up suddenly. Of course I never read something like this when I accepted the terms, but no matter, media requirements are changed without giving prior notice to subscribers anyway, like in TV receptions.

My contention is that the video clips are not in storage. They are an active part of every post. This site is unlike a commercial website that sells music or movies. A suggestion was made for me to put upload my video clips to You Tube, another American company, and then link my posts to that site, which streams videos very unlike the quality that you get from this site. And simultaneously, that webhost reduces the service charges to $3.95 a month very cheap. Of course this can be achieved if the clients were to share some particular amount of disk space.

This site must have cramped their service because the video clips occupy a considerable amount of space. Moreover, when these video clips are downloaded, it also crimps the speed of download from the server. I believe that the offer before I accepted the hosting was unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth. If they cannot give me these, then the webhosting service is the one that violates the terms of agreement.

You may ask, are my video clips active all the time. Sure. The error logs tell me that you people search for some video clips that I uploaded in 2009. I have not uploaded all the files that were there before the suspension. But now you people are asking to have them there. OK then. You will have them.

BY THE WAY, the name of this host is Canadianwebhosting. The techs here have experienced the unusually labyrinthine way of transferring my files to their servers.

Canadianwebhosting charged me about three times more than the last webhost did. They also offer unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth. But there never was a mention of streaming videos in the terms of agreement. This is good, because I offered to take down the video clips that are obsolete.
