January Jones and Jennifer Lopez have similar facial structures. It's weird. I keep seeing J Lo in Betty Draper's expression.

Why Google Killing Google Voice Would Be Fantastic
"Brace yourself Google Voice fanboys, your treasured service is probably not long for this world. But don't you worry; the sooner it's dead the better we'll all be. Reports are coming in from 9to5Google that everyone's favorite search engine is about to bring the axe down on its long-neglected phone service. That should come as no surprise as it's been leading Voice to the chopping block for ages. The good news though, 9to5Google reports, is that all your favorite Voice features will be transplanted to a service Google actually gives a damn about: Hangouts. That means loyal Voice users will simply be able to jump ship to Hangouts, meanwhile gaining features like VOIP calls from mobile devices—something iOS users have already tasted , but Android users have been left without. There's no word on timing, but Google I/O is on the horizon, which is a great opportunity for Google to showcase Hangouts' new superpowers while quietly putting Voice out of its misery backstage. And if you're... more... - Me from Bookmarklet

I need to find an alternative and port my number. I've had my number since GrandCentral and use it everywhere. - Me
Google Voice hasn't worked for 2 years. I just got a message from Nov. 2013 on Sunday. Two weeks before that, I got a message from July 2012. - Anika
Do you use it often? Or just on occasion? For me its my main phone number. Its out everywhere and everyone has it that gets in touch with me. Its interesting you got a message from 2012 & 2013. Haven't had that experience yet. - Me
It's the number I give out to people. I have the site open every day. Most messages take 2 - 5 weeks to get to me. When people call that number, my phone rings, but I can't answer it. - Anika
Is Hangouts phone-number-free? I have a ton of Google Voice #s, and if the numbers evaporate, I'll have some migration to do. I don't like having one number to tie all of my worldly behavior together. probably will make even more use of @Burner app for temporary numbers. - Tinfoil 2.0

Google Voice has been my saving grace at work because I can't have my phone on. This is not good news for me. - Shevonne
It's been good for text and picking up voice mail transcriptions over the internet, esp. international for free. I just Paid Google to switch a number and more to keep an old one as a secondary. Ugh. - Tinfoil 2.0

My site’s been down for 24 hours and my host just keeps telling me it’s because it’s using too much memory. Are they BSing me?
That is upsetting. - Shevonne
What's your hosting setup? - Stephen Mack
Stephen, I have a shared hosting plan with Dreamhost. They're telling me that my site is using too much memory and they have a process watcher bot that kills processes from users who use too much memory so as not to overload the rest of the server. Which I understand, but I've done all the optimization things they recommended and basically have gone to an out of the box WordPress install, and now I've had only 503 errors since yesterday. - Jandy
Media Temple. I used it for my blog for years. It is costly though. $20.00 a month. Never had any problems however. - Friar Will
Dreamhost keeps trying to upsell me on their private servers. I haven't looked at the cost, but the $120 a year I pay for shared already feels like a lot. I guess it's not; it's like one more streaming media service. - Jandy
I use harelink: http://www.harelink.org/ for domain registration and they've been excellent with that. They do hosting as well, and the only reason I don't use them for that is I'm with lishost, which does library related sites. Although lishost might also host your site (you'd have to ask them though) Either way I don't think can go wrong with harelink - Sir Shuping is just sir
I went through the same thing with Dreamhost (site shut down due to memory use). They kept giving me the same answer - too much memory, would be better to switch to a private server. This dragged on for months until I finally fixed it myself by doing a complete wipe and rebuild of all three of my websites and their databases. That was PAINFUL. I did end up switching to a VPS a few months later though because I would still get weird memory use spikes that I couldn't manage for. - Hookuh Tinypants
I've never moved hosts. How difficult is it to package up 10 years of WordPress posts and images and move it to a new place? - Jandy
Tinypants, I don't even know how to do that. I mean, I could reinstall WordPress but I don't know how to do anything database-related that's not easily managed from some kind of dashboard UI. I ran an optimization on my database via a WordPress plugin, which did seem to speed things up a bit, but beyond that... - Jandy
Of course, now I can't even get to the WordPress dashboard, so I don't even know how to do a backup or export to get the data out to move it somewhere else. - Jandy
wordpress actually makes it pretty easy to migrate things. i know there's at least a plugin for it, but i think it's built in as well, where you point it to the site site, give it the account info and it'll pull it in for you. the only problem i ran into was if i didn't have the users already setup it would just give it my name for posts. it's been a while since i used dreamhost, but... more... - Sir Shuping is just sir
But if you wipe out the database, don't you lose everything? I don't want to lose 10 years of posts! - Jandy
I couldn't get into the WordPress dashboard either since it's linked to the domain and this literally shuts down all access to your website and its files through http://. I ended up going through FTP to pull out all my files manually, and then logged into the MySQL portion of my account and did db backups from there. (As far as a WordPress automated backup/migration - if the domain is down, you can't point anything to it) - Hookuh Tinypants
op, sorry i meant wipe the database after you got things out. does dreamhost still have the dashboard panel that you can log into to access your hosting options? i was thinking there was at least an option to bypass getting into wordpress from that, but at the very least being able to export the database without having to ftp into things. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Oh, probably. I can't do it from my work computer though. I mean, I could look, but I can't export it until I'm on my home computer. Which won't be until tomorrow night, since I have choir practice tonight. So I guess I just don't have a site for another day. - Jandy
If you switch hosts a lot of them can perform the migration for you with a remote connection to the MySQL database and a file transfer. - Mark H
Jandy - as Mark said, many hosts can perform the transfer for you. Also, if you can get to your Dreamhost cPanel, you can manually back-up your database and then use FTP to backup your files. It's a pain, but it's definitely do-able. I know it's more than twice what you're paying now, but you might want to seriously look at a host like WPEngine or Synthesis; they'll probably be a much... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
So here's a thing: When I look at my Dreamhost admin panel, I see the database that's connected to my blog (db is called faithx5, hostname is called blog.the-frame.com - pulled that from my wp-config file, so I know it's right). But when I log into PHPmyAdmin using the hostname blog.the-frame.com, "faithx5" is not among the databases listed, whereas several dbs I used for testing and now-defunct sites are. Is that weird? That seems weird. - Jandy
that is weird...it should be there. - Sir Shuping is just sir
The cheaper private plans will still probably die with out of memory errors and they aren't managed, so when they die it's up to you to restart them. Sucks. Did they say what processes were using too much memory? Was it MySQL? Perhaps you can change the config to allow fewer simultaneous connections, use less cache, or perhaps there's a query that's taking too long now because a table needs to be truncated. If you can look at the MySQL logs you can see what's happening. - Todd Hoff
Todd, this is a line from a log they sent me from their process watcher daemon: Tue Mar 4 07:08:51 2014 procwatch3 INFO: PID 28251 (php53.cgi) faithx5:pg171113 : killed for uid ram. - Jandy
So it was a particular cgi program. It could be trying to load in a super large table from the database? Do you know on what operation this happens on? Perhaps some plugin? Can you increase the php.ini memory_limit = 128M? Switching to PHP 5.4.x supposedly cuts memory usage. It's hard to tell without knowing more about what is happening. The nice thing about moving to SquareSpace is I don't have to worry about any of this shite anymore. - Todd Hoff
If you decide to change web hosting companies, one of the Wordpress services I offer is blog moving. And I work fairly cheap. Normal blog moving, without any crazy stuff involved, is $25.00 USD. http://securewp4me.com/service... - April Russo

My issue with "Best Places to Work" is that in the past, I've worked for 2 companies who consistently get in the top 3 for the area BUT when the time comes for the newspapers, or whomever the regulating authority is to determine such lists, there is SO much pressure put on the employees to give highly favorable ratings so it doesn't feel like a true metric. - Tamara J.

Three Years After Her Death, Daughter Sends Parents a Touching Letter - http://kotaku.com/three-y...
Three Years After Her Death, Daughter Sends Parents a Touching Letter
"The letter had been mailed when the daughter was still working as a bus guide in 2004 and on a trip in Aichi Prefecture. She had written the letter from Meiji-Mura, a museum dedicated to preserving Japanese architecture of the Meiji Era (1868 to 1912).P The museum has a working post office called Uji-yamada Post Office that offers a "Heartful Letter" (はあとふるレター) service. For 300 yen (US$3), you can have them hold a letter and then deliver it ten years later. The daughter had used this service and posted her letter on January 10, 2004." - ronin from Bookmarklet

RT @dougluzader: 10-year-old suspended from school for two days for pointing "finger gun" http://bit.ly/1jO1rL7
Schools have become ultra sensitive about things like that. My son posted a picture with "finger gun," and I made him delete it and told him to only post "vanilla" pictures cause of how sensitive people are. A week later, his school got an Instagram account and followed all of their students. Can't imagine what would have happened if they would have seen that picture. - Shevonne from iPhone
I realize that they have to be hyper-aware of these things, but it borders on the ridiculous sometimes. I don't think a finger gun is harmful. - Monique Judge
