Processor Upgrade Sunday

This has been on my ToDo list for a while to upgrade the processor in my daily driver laptop. The laptop currently has a socketed Intel Core i7-2640M Dual Core 2.8GHz.

The only issue is this laptop only activates two memory DIMM slots with the current Dual Core processor so the maximum RAM is 16GB.

Time to upgrade to an Intel Core i7-2960XM Extreme Edition Quad Core 2.7GHz.

Andysworld! comes home!

Thursday, July 25th, 2019

It’s been just a little over 10 years ago that I migrated Andysworld! and all my hosting to the US, with

BUT – 20 days ago, I was left with

  • No hosting.
  • No email for 4 days.

There was no explanation of when it would return. So I’ve voted with my feet, and brought it all back to the UK, where I’ve been hosting with Krystal.co.uk since 2004, in one shape or form, when they acquired PurpleCloud!! (in 2011).

This is JustHost.com strapline – “Professional Web Hosting from Just Host – JustHost”

All I can say is…Just****.com.

So since I’ve  moved it all back, there maybe some teething issues…
