43F Discount: 10% off all A2 hosting..._for life_

A2 Web Hosting

As you may know, 43 Folders is hosted through our friends at A2 Web Hosting. They’ve been great to work with and have an amazing record of stepping up to the plate whenever we have any problems — even those mysterious problems that turn out to be, uh, “pilot errors.”

Well, I’m happy to announce that A2 has kindly offered a terrific deal to new customers who are 43 Folders readers. From now through January 10th 2007 (or for 5,000 registrants, whichever comes first), you’ll get 10% off your hosting fees for the lifetime of your relationship with A2. Just choose the shared, dedicated, or reseller account that suits you, then check out with the coupon code “YLUSPXAWOAQAVL”.

When you sign up in this way, 43F receives a small finder’s fee (at no additional cost to you), so it’s “win/win,” as we used to say back in Menlo Park.

Like we’ve been saying over in the siderail:

A2 supports Ruby on Rails, PHP5, MySQL 5/4.1, PostgreSQL 8.1 and SSH/shell. Prices start at a bafflingly affordable $2.95 per month.

He lives in San Francisco, does lots of public speaking, and helps make cool things like You Look Nice Today, Back to Work, and Kung Fu Grippe. Also? He’s writing this book, he lives with this face, he suffers from this hair, he answers these questions, and he’s had this life. So far.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
