Submission + - Six months without Adobe Flash, and I feel fine (hou2600.org)

hessian writes: "As documented on /., six months ago I de-installed the Adobe FlashTM player on all my browsers.

This provoked some shock and incredulity from others. After all, Flash has been an essential content interpreter for over a decade. It filled the gap between an underdeveloped JavaScript and the need for media content like animation, video and so on."

Submission + - Strong and economical VPS hosting for small-to-mid-size sites 2

hessian writes: "Because everyone I know thinks of me as "the computer guy," I've ended up hosting a half-dozen community, family, and novelty web sites. These are small to mid-size sites, getting 5k-10k visitors per day. I love my old web host but it had a change in management and now I'm exploring new options. I think a Virtual Private Server (VPS) is probably the best option, since it gives the most flexibility without the time and complexity overhead of just buying a box and slamming it into the rack somewhere. But my question is what hosting company should I use, in the $40-70 per month price range? I ask Slashdot because of any group on the internet or off, you all are the ones who come in contact with this stuff daily and know what you're talking about. Any help appreciated. — Dave Hessian"

Submission + - Web-hosting service DreamHost warns users of passw (cnet.com)

hessian writes: "The company said it had reset all customer FTP passwords as a precaution and that users would have to create new ones by logging in to their DreamHost Web panel. It also advised customers to change their e-mail passwords, though it said e-mail passwords and billing information were not accessed.

DreamHost added today that handling new password requests was taking some time:

"Processing user updates is taking longer than usual due to the sheer number of customers requesting password changes on our system," the company said in a status update posted to its Web site. "We understand your desire to get things working in an expeditious manner and we are working hard to get you there. We're examining ways of decreasing the queue depth, but we're still faced with the fact that there is a considerable amount of work to be processed and apologize for the delay.""
