Quote: "The PlayStation Vita is a great device for portable gaming but it’s not perfect by any means. I got mine at launch and in that time I’ve used it quite a bit and I’ve noticed many things both good and bad.  Don’t get me wrong, I like the PS Vita, but there are some things that I don’t care for. So this started out as sort of a top ten list, a list of things that aren’t that great about the PS Vita. These are things that I’ve noticed in my time with it, and it’s a lot more than ten sadly. So are obvious, some aren’t, some are big and some are small, some people might find them a reason not to buy one, and some people might not care. We all know nothing is perfect though, most every device and gadget sounds much better in reviews and promotional material than it does when you actually get it in your hands. So read on to see what I found or think is wrong with the PS Vita….."

Firefox WTF?!?!

Oh Firefox I used to love thee.

At one point I recommended you to all of my friends and installed you on all of my computers.

What has happened to you?

You now crash at least four times per day, usually more than that, and usually at the most inopportune times.

Why have you forsaken me Firefox? Why are you treating me this way, why are you doing this to me? What have I done to deserve this scorn from you?

With all of your updates I thought you were getting better, but it seems you’re just getting worse.

I’ve taken to using IE more now, but it feels like cheating, but when you’re not there for me I’ve got to turn my attention elsewhere. I don’t want to cheat on you but you give me no choice.

Is our relationship coming to an end? Is it really over?

It was nice while it lasted but it seems your desire to become popular has overshadowed your actual usefulness.

You were my rock, I could depend on your like no other, but now you fail me, you’ve let me down.

I think it might be time to part ways my dear Firefox, parting is just such sweet sorrow.

It might be time to move on to another that will not let me down as you have.

You used to bring me happiness but now you just bring me frustration and even anger, and that I cannot live with anymore.

Why have you done this to me?

I will miss you.

Maybe, when you get your act together, we can start anew, but until then I just cannot bear to see you anymore.

GoDaddy Sucks.. and I need a new host.. Part two?!

Apparently someone at GoDaddy reads my blog, I got a call this afternoon from the ‘office of the president’ of GoDaddy and he referenced this blog posting.. that’s a trip isn’t it?

Well he was nice, but didn’t solve my problem, from what we gathered it could be a couple things, one is that there is a limit of 50 connections at one time to the database pulling data, there could be 200+ people on my site looking at it but only 50 can actually access the database…

Related to the DB, I also learned that there is no limit on the size of the database, I read somewhere a while ago that there was a 200mb limit on databases on GoDaddy shared hosting, but that limit was changed, too bad that they don’t mention this size anywhere on their site, maybe they should list that somewhere…

another problem could be the database itself, it was locking up for some reason, he recommended I optimize it… well I went into the backend of my site and deleted 4853 database entries, and then another 582 on top of that, I deleted old stuff from years ago, when you delete things in mambo it goes into the trash bin just like Windows, you have to go in and empty it just like Windows, well obviously I haven’t done that in a while, and considering you can only select 50 items at one time it took me a while…

so we’ll see if that lightened the DB any, going to do a backup shortly, and I know there is some other old entries in there that can be deleted as well…

but I think the real problem presently is the connections limitation and there is no way around that other than upgrading my hosting to a virtual dedicated server.. which is cost prohibitive right now..

hmm.. Hey GoDaddy.. Wanna be the official sponsor of DragonSteelMods?

hehe.. had to try..
