Out of the Blue

Well I guess it's the week for technical difficulties, as I've gotten a couple of reports of people getting a couple of different bounce messages when emailing the BlueTower. I've had a couple of go-rounds over the past couple of years trying to find a new mail provider to adopt that would be more to my liking, but have not succeeded, but it seems apparent it is time to rectify this.

What game is this and where do we use it?
BL2=Borderlands 2. And head of gearbox is giving out shift codes (for extra golden keys) like candy these past few days over twitter. They rarely last more than an hour or two though.

Best to keep an eye on the twitter if you want them.

Thanks. So where are these keys used? Steam?

Run borderlands 2. Goto EXTRAS in menu. Then goto SHIFT CODES, paste it in and it will tell you you have a new golden key...

If you don't have a shift account, give it a name and email and it will give you a golden key for making a shift account. I used one of my spam emails addys.

Haha - Wow, I thought the Browncoats had finally moved on. They got a movie after the show was cancelled, something that virtually no cancelled show ever gets. I figured they would have been happy with that and moved on, seeing as how it has been obvious for a long time that the show is definitely not coming back. I loved it though - such a shame it died in the cradle. If there was ever a show that deserved a 5 or 6-year run, Firefly was it.

There's also some sorta nearly endless ad loop I'm getting caught in on the front page. The top banner ad loads, then it takes like 5 mins to load anything else, and at the status bar I can see it bouncing back and forth between ad forward addresses.
Works fine to look at a link for specific story though.

Not sure what you are looking for in an email system but for $7/month (per account) you can use Office365. Gives you the all the advantages of having your own Exchange server without any of the upkeep (spam filtering included, etc.) and of course allows for ActiveSync with mobile devices. I could even send you a trial (my business is microsoft certified partner).

Just thought I'd throw out the option as we've used it for a few clients and it works great

Check out Apisnetworks sometime. I've known the admin for a long time, he's been running that company forever. They are always very reachable and uptime has been superb. I host a few vanity domains and some other email stuff with him. It's a techie hosting company by a techie for techies. He custom built his own control panel software which is pretty comprehensive if you aren't comfortable with the DIY approach.

It is pretty cheap to just host email with them. If you wanted to swap web hosts then I suggest getting a custom quote as a site of this size/age would probably need very specific configuration to accommodate chatbear and etc.

If you are comfortable with configuration and etc then you can't go wrong with Amazon's hosting platforms.

I don't have to have the Yoda-Speak to tell you, "Fucked, your email is!"

(Although I still think the problem we discussed the other day could very well have been on gmails end.)
