1and1 Website Hosting Review: Worst of the Worst

Screen Shot 2014-04-12 at 10.42.22I eventually realized that I had to leave 1and1 on 25 March 2014 after sending customer support three emails over several hours requesting assistance before receiving any response.  Each one was marked “WEBSITE DOWN”

ARTICLE

I have been operating websites for almost two decades and have used a number of website hosting companies.

In recent times it has become hard to avoid the 1and1 website hosting company bearing in mind their heavy advertising on the Internet and on TV.

Kulluk Grounding: Miracle no injuries or loss of life

Article by Tim Bradner published 11 April 2014 by the Alaska Journal of Commerce under the headline: Coast Guard: Tug engine failure blamed on water in fuel

It is a mariner’s worst nightmare: At sea, in a bad storm, pulling a heavy load and working to keep control in a dicey situation. Then, all the engines quit. And won’t restart. Precisely this event occurred in late December 2012 to the crew of the Edison Chouest vessel Aiviq as it struggled to keep towlines on Shell’s conical drill vessel Kulluk. The effort failed. The Kulluk went aground off Kodiak Island and was a total loss, which is now well known and documented. It was a miracle that there were no injuries or loss of life, and the evacuation of 18 crewmembers from the Kulluk’s heaving deck by Coast Guard helicopters during the storm was an exploit that should go down in maritime history. read more

Extracts from an article by Jeff Nevile published Friday 11 April 2014 by oilvoice.com

Royal Dutch Shell Plc was one of the first to announce a plunge in profit this year as they announce a 48% drop. As Shell postponed their offshore drilling in Alaska, Chief Executive Officer Ben Van Beurden promised to slash capital spending to increase their return and cash flow performance. The question is, what is the duration of this spending cut going to be and how much damage is it causing the big players? read more
