Now Sushi Den is a bit of a landmark for me, for a couple of reasons. One, is that I am not a big fan of seafood, despite having grown up on the coast. Secondly, I used to live near Sushi Den and would walk by it, but never enter, for I was a poor college student then and I had heard tales of monumental bills in that place. Now, after having slowly opened up to seafood and sushi, I not only was game for sushi, but excited for it. My excitement was justified. If I had sushi like this when I was younger, it would have probably turned my life upside down, because it was so good, so amazing, and so wonderful, I could not deny the deliciousness of fish. Of course, some of what we had was so good, it didn't even taste like fish. It was just an explosion of flavors mixed with pleasing textures and served with style. Even the sashimi (and that's the raw stuff) was excellent, and well worth the price of ingestion. The cocktail I had later at Beatrice & Woodsley? Not so much. One out of two ain't bad.
Another task this weekend was switching my web hosting company. My current provider, Uplink Earth, used to be both good and cheap. Then they got hacked badly, and became progressively worse, unreliable and difficult to use. I couldn't even access my own account information without getting access from their customer support. Recently I've discovered that two of the three domains that I was pointing there weren't working. That was enough. I set out to find a new host.
The burden I bear in my host search, is ColdFusion. It is not a standard offering from web hosts, and is usually an extra charge if they have it all. I need ColdFusion to support a project of mine from school. I found Host Excellence, which seemed good and included ColdFusion in their standard packages. Or so I thought. After signing up, I tried to turn on things for ColdFusion, only to find that ColdFusion was a $5 extra. Screw that. I canceled with them and moved over to Go Daddy, which was the other host that I saw offers a fair shake with regards to ColdFusion. I'm actually transferring things to them as I type this. So my websites, if anyone is interested, will be up once the Domain Name Servers get updated.
