It is in upgrading to WordPress 2.1.2 that I am reminded of how glad I am that I switched webhosts. FTP speeds for Bluehost are already a thousand times better than what they ended up being for iPower. And the weird thing is that they _used_ to be good with iPower, as well. But over time they got progressively worse and contacting support got me nowhere. So, that to say that my website is happy in its new home and I have more power and flexibility to truly customize it the way I want to.
Interestingly enough, I got yet another email this morning from iPower’s support team saying they were transferring my server switch to a higher level tech who could help me – a week after I called to close that account. Makes me _doubly_ glad I switched because, otherwise, I’d still be waiting. I don’t know what’s happened at iPower recently, but they’ve gone from good customer support to a creeping monstrosity.
Oh, and WP 2.1.2 is now running happily, as well. I saw all the announcements and warnings yesterday but never had a chance to do anything about it. (And I wasn’t too terribly concerned – I’d upgraded to 2.1.1 _long_ before the cracker starting messing with the download package.)
