General Housekeeping

Audubon ravenIt's hectic trying to keep everything working. There's the memorial service for my parents — coming up fast — and then there's paying estate taxes on their two trusts (DC, unlike most states and the federal government, has an estate tax that dings the middle class), managing a working farm (the crop will be in soon), managing rental properties, and managing an investment account (which I finally got around to last week). Not to mention getting everything necessary done with the lawyer and the accountant.

On top of all that, which is a full-time job, the BlueHost server for EP is having issues. Despite the fact that I haven't added much to the site for months, every couple of weeks site usage jumps by 1%, which in this case is about 300 MB. Recently it's jumped from 84% usage to 88% usage. BlueHost is unable to explain what's happening. If I do nothing about available space disappearing we'll run out of space in a couple months.

If the site runs out of space it automatically shuts down. That's actually an option, as I won't have time to do much with EP for at least another six months. Even then, whatever I'll be able to do will almost certainly be different... Alternatively, I could open an account with another, better service provider and switch, keeping EP on its current hiatus. That would be my preference but if I do that then I feel like I should also upgrade the Movable Type installation (the version EP runs is now deprecated). Total cost of moving would be about $1,500-2,000, which I don't feel comfortable spending. It's a dilemma.

If I switch to a new service I'll announce it here ahead of time so that if the move doesn't go smoothly you'll know to wait for EP to reappear.
