I'm sorry to say, after 9 years of selflessly serving the freeware community, my good friend Bob, has decided to close down WebGrid on an indefinate basis.
Part of the reason for this is due to FastHosts being a pain in the rear and deciding the site was using "too many resources" (interesting considering it worked perfectly for over 2 years without their having an issue). First they moved the site to a "probation server" and gave Bob 7 days to get it sorted out - we worked on it and tweaked it as much as we could. Second, they advised (partial quote);
I actually did check the site on my own machine, and a much much lower spec machine than their server, and it NEVER CAUSED A RESOURCE ISSUE!. By far the funniest however, is their mentioning migrating the database to MySQL or MSSQL. Why is this funny? MySQL is after all, a free database right? WRONG!. FastHosts actually charge £70+ PER YEAR for MySQL, and SEVERAL HUNDRED PER YEAR for MSSQL.
Finally, when we'd made the tweaks, we received a note from Chris Davis, advising us (partial quote);
I am personally annoyed by FastHosts because of this issue, not just because they decided, after not being a problem for 2 YEARS, that it was automagically causing an issue, but because Bob has ran a great website for several years, at his own expense, and I doubt I am going to be alone in being sorry to see WebGrid go.
