So, [ profile] crystal_diva appears to be starting to organize a reunion for our high school class. Since I eat lunch with her everyday, this appears to mean I'm helping. *g*

So, I'm now the "web person", and I'm looking for a domain hosting service. Right now, it'll just be a place to collect name and address info, so I'll need php and mysql access, but it'll never be very complicated - just a few information pages and maybe a mailing list, really. And, we're really not looking to spend $30 or $40 a month to do this.

One local hosting service I've found is Ethical Hosting - their base service is only $7/month, which seems really reasonable. Anyone know what they're like to deal with? And "gotchas" I should be looking for? Any other recommendations for hosting services?

We're looking to get a domain registered and a base site up in the next couple of weeks, so there's no big rush, but I've never tried to get this kind of hosting before, and I'm not sure what the pitfalls are.

I've just sent my first patch for Dreamwidth code in for review.

I can't believe how nervous I was to do this - it was a simple change, and I'm sure it works, but I was still kinda freaked out by the whole thing.

I hope this one passed review ok. Since I'm on vacation this week, I figured this was a good week to try to get set up and dip my foot into the waters. I'm going to try for one patch a week, for at least the next little while.

I guess I'll have to try to create a coding userpic. *g*
