I’m done with GoDaddy (almost)

After way more years than I want to admit I am finally done with GoDaddy.

I bought the tamerand.com domain name more than ten years ago when I set it up as a reseller for GoDaddy services. Mainly I used it to make sure my clients were getting the least expensive domain registration, hosting, etc. It was convenient at the time to have access to all of the domains on one account.

For years the quality of service has dropped but two years ago they began dropping applications and support for different platforms. When they dropped support on my hosting service for Drupal without announcing it I was done.

Unfortunately it took two more years for me to have the time and energy to move multiple sites to a new hosting service.

So far I am blown away at how much better this new service is but at this time I still have to move one client’s site, and tamerand.com as well as the newer webetal.com domains over. They are the two store fronts I have for the reseller services.

I’ll write more about all of this after I get them moved. I can’t move move until I’ve taken care of all of my clients. I have until March 30th to get it all done.

Damaged Dresser

I ordered a dresser from Walmart:

It arrived yesterday via FedEx, on time, but it was badly damaged. The delivery person stuck it in this corner with the worst of the damage at the bottom and facing the wall so it wouldn’t be seen.


Damaged box

By the time we were able to inspect and inventory everything the manufacturer’s offices were closed so this thing is going to sit untouched until they send new parts. I filled out a review at walmart.com and sent an email to the manufacturer.

I’ll add more when I hear back from either of them.

It could have been worse I suppose but the key parts needed to assemble it are all too damaged to be used.
That includes the top, the two sides, the front and back kick plates, and two drawer sides.

UPDATE (02/01/2021)

I just heard back from the manufacturer and I am not happy with their answer:

TARRITA (Hodedah import)

Feb 1, 2021, 15:39 GMT-5 Hello,

Thank you for choosing Hodedah. We apologize, but at this time the replacement parts you requested, is currently out of stock. Please allow us 30-45 days for us to get the parts in stock so that we may serve you. Again, thank you for choosing Hodedah please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.

Asking me to wait a month and a half before they even get the parts to ship is pretty outrageous. I am not sure there is much I can do about it at this point tho.
