I apologize if Jfro fans have missed me, my blog was hijacked by spammers. That is why I'm now available at badassjfro.net. All I wanted to do was stop giving money to Godaddy because they suck. That will show me to be a good Internet citizen! I hope Google comes to its senses someday and drops them as a partner (they make it much easier to buy a Blogger site from Godaddy than the Lifehacker-approved Dreamhost.)
I guess $10-a-year hosting is pretty much all up to the end user except for actual hosting part. Of course, Godaddy had no incentive to tell me it didn't go through for some reason. Instead, they sold my site to a spammer who is trading on my Internet good name. I don't want to know what they'd want me to pay for my site back. Badassjfro.net is fine, except for having to make up new calling cards. If you have old links that go to the original ash966.blogspot.com, they probably still work.
Also, my Google Groups mailing list for the blog has apparently been borked for a year. Anyone have any idea why? (Sigh) Maybe I should switch to Wordpress.
