GrandMasterPixel downtime: moving away from GoDaddy

Update: Annnnnnnnd we’re back. Feels good.

Apologies: GrandMasterPixel iswas temporarily offline while the domain name (along with four others) iswas transferred off GoDaddy to another registrar. All going to plan, it should be back up in a few hours. The transition was mostly painless (once I figured out how to deal with the new registrars zone files).

I’ve been dissatisfied with GoDaddy for a few years now – I particularly dislike their horrible user interface which is actively designed to trick or confuse you into buying some extra service you probably don’t want. The last straw that prompted me to change was their support of the SOPA internet censorship bill, a proposal currently working it’s way through the US Congress which would have wide ranging implications for internet freedom as we know it. Oh, that and the fact that Bob Parsons shoots elephants.

So, sorry about the downtime, but it’s “for a good cause”.
