Aye Aye Net

Eight years ago I signed up with iiNet for ADSL on their top-tier business plan, which gave me 1.5 mbits down, 256 kbits up, and 60GB of monthly downloads.

I'm still on the same plan, and paying the same amount each month.  Only now I get 14 mbits down, 2 mbits up, and 1200GB of downloads.

I wish more things worked like that.

1 Every so often I'll log into my Linode manager (I don't need to except once in a blue moon anyway) and find that, hey, they've upped my memory/CPU/storage allocation just because.

I love those guys, especially now that the Fremont CA site isn't going up and down like a yo-yo anymore...

2 That's pretty nice, GreyDuck--it's been my experience that they don't bother changing your plan for you if the new one's better and cheaper, they just keep charging you for your now-obsolete plan--the way I found out about this was looking at my hosting site and discovering that I'd been paying a plan for about two years after it was replaced with one much better.  That has happened to me personally once, the place I currently work once, both with web hosting, and Verizon did it to me with Fios once (when I called about cancelling they pointed out that the plan I was on wasn't even offered any more and bumped me from 5MBps to 25.)

3 Pixy?  I need your help... there are still two rogue comments in my "CONTENT > Comments > edit" screen that are so long that they've pushed all the editing boxes off the edge of my screen.

I can't seem to find where to adjust the Editing screen to widen it, if that's even possible.  Could you please work your magic on this matter, like you've done before?

Thank you muchly!

4 'Duck, if you're using a modern browser and know a little HTML/CSS, hit F12 to bring up the developer tools.  You can use those to do something clever like resize the element that's too big.

5 I have no idea what I'm doing.

6 And now I've got a visible spam comment, too.  I weep.

7 Sorry about that Wonderduck.  I'll take a look now.

If you let me know the spammers' names or URLs I can run an automated search-and-destroy script on them.

8 Okay, you should be good now.

9 And I'm going to try something...

11 Okay, comments thingy shouldn't do that no more.  (Works in Chrome, anyway.)

I'm going to replace it with a Datatables widget at some point soon.  That will handle all the ick formatty stuff for me.

12 Pixy, thank you!  While I don't use Chrome regularly, I'll keep it installed just in case this happens again. 

You're the ginchiest!

13 Now also for Firefox!

14 Looks like somebody created an account just to leave comment spam

That happens occasionally. Maybe once a year, one of them spams me. (My blog requires a login to comment.)

Didn't happen today, at least not yet.
