William Rapp — saviour of all things Churbuck

Okay, okay, you know I hosed my blog on Sunday when I did the foolish and upgraded this thing from WordPress 1.5 to 2.0.1. The sites been down for three days and your emails have been telling me to pull the plug and move on.

Aha, an email to my friendly sysop and I am back. Back, I tell you.

I don’t know what he did, how he did it, or where he found the time to do it, but let me say most strongly, there is no ISP like Cape.com. I’ve been with these guys since the late 90s and their customer service and technical support are unparalleled. Had I been hosting elsewhere I think I would have given up long, long ago.

William and his partner at Cape.com, Vern Grabel, run an outstanding local ISP, one that powers a lot of Cape Cod businesses and organizations from the Cotuit Kettleers to the Barnstable Patriot. They are smart, know what they are doing, and in my case, saved me from myself in a very big way.

Thanks to Om Malik at gigaom.com and Chris Murray, CTO of CXO Inc.for keeping me from inflicting further injury on myself.
