I have had a low-level stress-induced head-and-body ache since January, when a blogger that relies on my spotty and unpaid hosting noted that comments were not working. After ages of struggle, I think I’ve resolved things for now, at a blown time (over 120 hours more than I hoped to invest) and monetary budget (about 200 in new gear). I may continue with part II, outsourcing the hosting component, as it looks like I can get someone else to do the dirty work (software upgrades, bandwidth, blackholing spambots) for about $15 a month.

The next card to flip in the deck, of course, is how to generate revenue on the labor.
