Rap, Kids, Movies, and More

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on December 1st, 2008 - 9:55 pm Filled Under: Dear Blog, Freedom of Speech

Dear Blog,

Today, as I was shopping (Yes, I do shop — I’m forced to.) for my “vacation” to Kuwait (It’s cold there.), I came across a toys store. In that toy store, there was this kid (Congrats, you’re famous! :-D) with his mom, playing with a toy. He pressed the button on the toy, and 50 Cent’s In Da Club song started playing. Holy f**k!

Rap, kids, under 5 years old. And there are ratings and restrictions for games, movies, almost every other thing. It drives me crazy! A kid, a boy, a little kid, it’s not even funny — it’s a kid, is allowed to have a toy that at the press of a button plays a verse that contains And you know we don’t give a fuck.

I get asked to show my ID every time I buy a movie ticket (with the exception of Madagascar 2 and G-rated movies, which by the way, is awesome!!), why? To make sure I’m not underage. Obviously. What about the people who aren’t? To make sure the producers don’t get sued for being a bad influence? There are other ways, and nowadays they’re found in a store that only mothers and children enter! (and employees..) Wow.

How awesome? (Sarcasm)

The Sensation: Part 3

Part 1 | Part 2


After part 2, FanSiteHost decided to fill a lawsuit (or law suite according to them) against me. For having an opinion, or as they said modifying the chat’s content. I’m not the one with the crappy spelling and grammar, so you all understand what I say, FSH… not so good (and their site shows it).

Here is the conversation:

Shaibanii »» says:
have you filled your “suite” yet? @_@ says:
its not me. i just work here. our lawyers will be reviewing and do whatever they need to
Shaibanii »» says:
you’re a free company based from a home and you have pro lawyers o.O
Shaibanii »» says:
Shaibanii »» says:
:-O* says:
we r not based from home says:
anyways. im here to help hostees. not to talk w u that ur not hosted. says:
Shaibanii »» says:
are you based from a basement then? o.o
Shaibanii »» says:
but before you help your hostees
Shaibanii »» says:
tell me, why are you filling a law “suite”
Shaibanii »» says:
? says:
U told wrong things from ur chat with carlos
Shaibanii »» says:
such as… says:
You modified conversation with your own proposes says:
I cant talk now. Rlly busy bye. Have a nice day sir
Shaibanii »» says:
i spellchecked since mr carlos’ and your spelling SUCK says:
What ?
Shaibanii »» says:
the only thing i modified from the chat was spelling and grammar =\ says:
you used information to your own purposes of bashing fsh service. They can get you in court for image danifiication says:
Nothing with me tho. Have a nice day
Shaibanii »» says:
and i can get you in court for false advertising. says:
Up to you. Bye man.
Shaibanii »» says:
indeed O.o

About an hour after this, I recieved the following in my inbox:

Hello Shaibani Shaibani,

This message is to inform you that your billing account and any associated packages with have been cancelled.

If you feel that this is in error, please notify the support department immediately.

Thank you,

It’s CANCELED! :-| Fucked up spelling. :-|

Part 1

After the controversy that part 1 stirred up on MSN, part 2 comes up! :-D And after that part 3.. but we can wait :-)

Steven was the first to reply to the first part via comments and said:


To be honest, I feel your being a little too nice in this blog. I mean they claim to be the best Fan site host around but even free hosts offer better than this, the fact that you have to set up another account just to point a domain at it absolutely sucks and means more work for webmasters.

Secondly, when I chatted with Mr. Carlos Fansitehost (if that is indeed his surname :D) he wasn’t the best of persons and I felt that he really didn’t help on my inquiries. I asked what are your hosting packages, he ignored me! :( And then I said about Unlimited Bandwidth and how its impossible and he said “You don’t work here, you don’t know”. Very mean. He doesn’t sound like someone I would want to have help out with a site.

And of course who could forget about that code that ruins the whole damn website — the bar! I hate that with a passion. Don’t they know how to code it properly so that it doesn’t break the coding and cause problems with the layout? Damn, talk about Noobs. And their spelling = atrocious. :O

He also added:

I absolutely feel that Fansitehost is misleading in nearly every way, they claim to be Unlimited, yet you sign up and you have that ugly looking 300MB staring you in the face. Hugely misleading.

Carlos, I feel can be a bit ignorant and almost arrogant at times. I asked simple questions and he seemed to have lost his rag and I quickly found myself in a bit of a heated debate. Not that I mind that type of thing, you understand.

Their layout and presentation also gets old very quickly, spelling and grammar is atrocious, the layout is quite sickening and really doesn’t show how community friendly they are supposed to be. I feel they are very limited on information and a lot is left for other options.
And of course who could forget about that code that ruins the whole damn website — the bar! I hate that with a passion. Don’t they know how to code it properly so that it doesn’t break the coding and cause problems with the layout? Damn, talk about Noobs.

Fawaz — a FSH hostee says:

 i think fansitehost is good but i hated the bar thingy which isnt there anymore i mean it wasnt coded properly but all the other stuff are good .. i mean they give us free host and help us and many more so all i got to say is keep up the good job?

its unfair that they say get 300 unique vistors per day and get a domain cause its impossible even them they dont get so they should at least do it like 100 or something like that             

This is true.

Agreed with all of the above! Although I do think FSH is do-able. :-)

I cannot disagree with any of the above, can you? Send it in, OR leave it via comments OR tell me on MSN and I’ll ask you when I’m writing the next part.

I know this is a bit boring and short, but it’s just to keep the topic alive. Part 3 will be better, I promise :-) This will all get sent in to FSH ;)


Me, Myself, and YouTube

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on September 26th, 2008 - 3:39 pm Filled Under: Freedom of Speech

How much is YouTube a part of you? Will your Internet experience be the same without it? No it won’t, because YouTube has become an essential part of our online lives. But what If I told you that there was another video sharing service, would you start going to it for videos? I can guarantee you won’t. Why?

There are 3 types of people in this situation, the user (you), the publisher (possibly you), and the service-owner (definitely not you). I’ll put this in mathematical terms..

Users > Publishers > Service-Owners

Publisher wants users which there are a lot of. Service-Owners (people who own these video sharing services) want both. So the users control everything. YouTube is filled with Users and Publishers constantly posting and interacting etc. Users move, Publishers move, Service-Owners… FUCKED! :-D YouTube’s traffic, database full of videos, everything, is well.. “designed to make you come back”, I remember when I first saw YouTube back in 2005, It was well.. love at first site! :-D I kept coming back for more etc. YouTube grew, and more feeble attempts to copy it popped up, and closed down.

Where should I post my videos?

YouTube! Its the only place anyone goes to watch and upload videos, forget Google Video, Dailymotion, Revver, bla bla bla! Everyone’s doing it! Y-o-u-t-u-b-e-[dot]-com! The quality is good, and its fun to watch people doing crazy things and breaking copyright! Forget everything else! YouTube! YouTube! You-Tube! You-fucking-Tube! Tube-You! You-Tube! Forget anywhere else, its YouTube! YouTube!!!! YOU-Tube! ME-TUBE!! YOUUUUTUBEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)


Why Surpass Owns Your Host

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on September 25th, 2008 - 4:58 pm Filled Under: Freedom of Speech, Interaction

Surpass Hosting

Shutup. It does. Don’t argue. Don’t fucking argue. :-| Why? Simple, because there are no problems with hosting (or at least on my server). It’s not expensive, good support if any problems pop up, and this is going to be hard for me to explain, because I’ve never been with a crappy host before.

Since I do not know everything about crappy hosts, I thought I’d ask some others.

Dann said “2 days ago“.

Anon said “Today

Steven who is hosted by Surpass said “Never

He also said that they were very courteous when they helped him move hosting plans. Which brings me to support. When problems pop up, which eventually do, Surpass replies in less than 15 minutes! I’ve heard many stories from people about how crap their host is, and how they never really help them. In my whole life I’ve been on 2 hosts, 110mb and Surpass. So I thought I’d throw out a question during one of the group conversations which I’m added against my will. 40% said no, and 60% said yes, when asked “Does your host actually help you?”. I asked a few fellow Surpass hostees and they said yes or never had a problem when I asked “Have you ever had a problem with Surpass?” and/or “Does Surpass Support help you?”.

That’s support, all hosts offer pretty much the same thing, cPanel + Fantastico, there’s no “rating” for it to be honest. Unless you want me to measure how fast they load. :-|

Price, $6 for 200GB and 2TB bandwidth. Un-beatable.

So there you have it, all I’ve talked about is support, and I’m convinced that Surpass owns! But all I’ve talked about is Support, is that really how a hosting is defined? By the way that it treats its customers and supports them? I think so. You?

All controversy severed cold please and in the comments :-)


The Sensation

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on September 21st, 2008 - 2:15 pm Filled Under: Freedom of Speech, Interaction

Have you noticed a sudden increase in web sites? It’s because FanSiteHost has a new system, an automatic one that gives you a site in less than 5 minutes! (Even if you think the form is too long) One has to wonder, is this too good to be true? A site, with MySQL, “unlimited” webspace 300MB according to the YCS cPanel, “unlimited” bandwidth, and many more. Anyone can sign up for free, all they have to do is place a couple of ads on their site.

Enough bullshit, it has been proven all-over the internet that unlimited bandwidth + webspace is impossible! Even WebHostingTalk says it isn’t possible and they have people who work at GoDaddy, Surpass, BlueHost etc. They seem to ignore the difference between unlimited and un-metered, and that’s a BIG difference! Although they do upgrade your webspace if you ask them (or at least to my knowledge).

Anyway, you also get one subdomain (apart from the one), no custom emails accounts, and 1 FTP account (apart from the main one). Seems pretty cool, yeah? All a fan site owner could ever ask for. It is FanSiteHost isn’t it? Now, with everyone joining FSH, how do they keep track of everything. I thought I’d ask Carlos, the nice guy that’s on IM support.

Why did you start your automatic registration system?

FSH: Because we get around 60 new registrations by day, which might not sound a lot, but its like over 1800 per month, and as internet covers all time zones, we cannot be awake 24/7.

Wow! With that many people joining per day, and now without approval, how do you keep track of everything?

FSH: We review hostees every once in a while in a random order. Once we see anything against the TERMS OF SERVICE, we get their accounts suspended, and will only be opened again once the hostee contact us and explains his situation / fixes his problem.

Seems pretty solid, lets move on…

On your “What Can I Expect” page, you say that hostees get unlimited bandwidth, yet it has been proven all over the internet that unlimited bandwidth is impossible. Explain..?

Unlimited bandwidth its not impossible. Our servers have un-metered traffic, so they can allow unlimited output for high traffic websites :-) the bandwidth is unlimited, however its max speed is of 100mb/sec (which is great, most of hosting deals give 10mb or less ). :-)

What about unlimited webspace, thats not possible, on the YCS cPanel it says 300MB. Explain..?

FSH: Unlimited webspace is available just for premium domains, the ones that get over 300 unique viewers per day. Subdomains are in the base plan which features 300mb (against the other hostings that just give 100).

Same with webspace, unlimited = impossible, explain..? again?

FSH: One server is just like a computer. We add more space according to the needs of the hostees. By adding data disks and so :-)

FSH: BRB. Need to out for a smoke :-P

What about the ads? The bar is obviously un-popular with most hostees…

FSH: Many people didn’t manage to get it up since their coding structure was wrong. So it was causing layout breaks. :-)

No more questions popped in my head, so I thought I’d wrap it up. :-)

Seems like a dream webhost I know, but Surpass owns them. :-P Anyway.. their ads (bar) KILLS most sites, I mean some sites look really good, but the bar goes ahead and ruins it. Systematically and without sensation :-|

Their support is awesome, MSN, AIM, Gmail, Email whatever! Although the guy’s not always online, but when he is, he’s ready to help. I think that, that’s the thing that makes FSH good. :-) They don’t offer the BEST services, or have the most professional looking web site.

Speaking of the FSH website, did you notice that rarely gets updated? Or did you notice that it has tons of spelling and grammar errors? :-| They should work on making it better, maybe it would encourage people to register! :-|

Enough for now… To be continued…

Want to be featured in Part 2? Simply, leave your thoughts as a comment, and hopefully your thoughts will appear in the post! :-D


Why You Shouldn’t Use Fantastico For Anything!

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on September 5th, 2008 - 6:38 am Filled Under: Freedom of Speech

Just incase you have no idea what a “fantastico” is. Fantastico is this thing that usually comes with cPanel. It installs scripts for you such as Wordpress,

No, I haven’t lost it. In fact Fantastico S-U-C-K-S! Why? It robs you of experience! You don’t get better at doing things yourself if you fill out a form, go to sleep and then wake up. It doesn’t work that way. Even if you’d like it to. Another reason, if you just move one little thing, everything could go BOOM so to speak. :-| I learned this the hard way, when I was working on Big-Show.NET after I moved to Wordpress (which requires a MySQL database). All my Wordpress files were under /wp. I decided to move it to the root which is /. After moving it, whenever I uploaded a file (a picture or anything) it would go under /wp/wp-content/uploads/*month*/*year*. So I decided I’d remove the installation from Fantastico, and then install it manually with the same database. Fantastico removed the database as well. :-| Wow, that sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-| Like I said — I learned the hard way.

Also, Fantastico phpBB installations have been umm.. acting weird, same with SMF. Everything didn’t work! Coppermine Fantastico installations, XP Publish doesn’t work. :-| Fantastico is shit!!!!!!!! :-| Joomla installations, can’t login to the admin panel. :-| Solution? Install things yourself! :-|

Say no to Fantastico! (it rhymes)

Blogs! Blogs! Blogs! This is a blog, that’s a blog, he has a blog, she has a blog, it has a blog. Umm.. whats a blog? Here’s a definition from “an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page; also called Weblog, Web log”. I could go on all day, searching for blog definitions on tons of sites, but I won’t.

In my mind, everyone’s definition of a “blog” is different. Why? Because everyone uses blogs differently. I use blogs to basically express myself. You might use blogs to learn. Some other guy uses blogs to spam. -_- Others use the articles blogs to occupy themselves, or to spread knowledge, post random stuff, and tons of other reasons. But what makes a blog? Read the rest »
