    Hosting 2018

    Can we separate the different hosting types, and dig a bit deeper?

    I mean what's your specific suggestion for:

    and shared hosting
    maybe specialized for wp, m2, laravel, node, etc

    • +pockets
    • honestly I don't know. We've always used Grid or DV on (mt) depending on the client. Haven't really messed with the other options.dbloc
    • we do primarily custom wp sites with other proprietary components sprinkled in that require additional databases.dbloc

    I think fans are the some of the lamest humans alive. Fans. What is a fan? Someone who has no skill themselves so must pretend they have something in their lives by being a fan of someone else more talented and interesting than them.

    Football fans are obviously the worst example. People that get upset and angry that a bunch of men that they've never met, lose at a game that kids play in the school playground.

    There's a guy in the office who is a die hard rock and roll fan. I'm all for enjoying music but this guy thinks he's an authority on music simply because he's listened to lots of it and knows all about the musicians, the years that songs came out etc. It's fucking hilarious, All of that is nothing. He can't play an instrument or sing a single note in tune, haha. He has nothing but convinces himself he is some kind of rock authority.


    Fucking fans.

    • haha, I think about this oftenmonospaced
    • He’s ready for jeopardyimbecile
    • I kind of agree. 60yo football fans in full kit are a bit embarrassing. That said, obsessives and fanatics are often the people who keep their specialistFax_Benson
    • subjects alive - the kind of people who set up museums and give tours and create archives. Interesting people. who aren't put off by lack of talent and cynicsFax_Benson
    • It’s ok bro. Even if daddy never took you to a game. I’m sure he still loved you. :-(HijoDMaite
    • Never been a sport fan but I can see why some people need it in their life. Just like some people need Jesus.microkorg
