My wife was tired of listening to my screaming (in terror and delight) and clicking reload every second to see the update to my hits. About when I hit 12,000 hits an hour, she decided that it was time to leave work and go see a movie. So, now I'm back and it looks like during this period of time the site has moved from the old DotEasy
servers to the Surpass Hosting
servers. So, for a period of time, everyone's been looking at slightly older version of the Cooking For Engineers site (my backup). I just setup Blogger
to properly update the new server, so we should be up and running.
I would like to thank everyone who donated to the site during this amazing time. (I would have posted everyone's names, but I was concerned for people's privacy.)
Also thank you everyone who offered to host my site and also gave suggestions on how to reduce my bandwidth usage.
Glad you're still online
I like your site. Looks like we both had similar ideas not far apart. Great minds and all that. ;)

Again, great site!
I have to commend your will to make a site that is both funny and interesting, but at the moment it is definitely not for engineers.
While I don't expect you to work out details of each and every ingredient like a consisten engineer would do , at least use appropriate measurement units ; what the hell is a "cup of" ? Use international measure units please.
The list of woes is long, but I don't want to discourage you too much.
While this would reduce bandwith usage, it'd also be a boon for people who don't like registering for services or commenting anonymously :)
$7 a month (paid annually) gets you 50GB of traffic per month. They also have an unmetered package, but I dunno how much it runs for.
My engineer husband once made Hamburger Helper (the cheesy potato flavor). I came into the kitchen and it was smoking - black smoke! I said, "Honey, you need to turn it off!" He said, "But the directions say to cook it for 14 minutes!" I said, "There's an implied direction of 'unless it's on fire' in there!" Anyway, I'm sure that he could whip up wonderful meals with your cookbook!!
Great site by the way.
Hmm doesn't sound right to me. :) Anyone can be moved if they feel they need to, but with all of our servers being phased to Dual Xeons, things are pretty quiet.
Anywho, thank you for choosing Surpass to host Cooking For Engineers. We love the site, and I smell a Site of the Week brewing and bubbling on the stove...

(I second the idea to get HaloScan, as not everyone has a blogger account... or still has an active one anyway)
Love your site tbw.
I mainly wanted to echo the request that you add an XML / RSS / Atom / whatever option for your site.
Unless you're updating your site all the time you can wind up at the bottom of the bookmark list. Offering an RSS feed makes it easier to notice new posts for those of us who keep track of things with an RSS aggregator.
I'm not familiar with Blogger administration but it should boil down to a couple of clicks on the admin options page and maybe pasting a tag into your template. The Blogger software will probably handle everything else automatically.
