Going Back to DreamHost

After a bit of a go on my own terms using my own server, it’s been a good run with the server from DigitalOcean but since my servers on there have become exclusively for business usage.

The problem with that, is I have to hand the account over to myself, the business and justify the business expense.

So because bureaucracy is as it is, I have to seperate the personal server from the bank of business ones. And because my DreamHost account is personal, I started up a DreamHost VPS for this site and EC.JE.

During this week, I’ve got to do the manual part, setting it all up, getting the plugins ready and moving the content. At least the images are still hosted on a CDN service.

New CRM

So having found a new CRM and really testing it out, I've been madly bringing everything across from EspoCRM.

Granted it's a paid for product, but considering my invoicing level is at the stage where I should really be investing in the business and making an effort at marketing, client management and the like.  The good thing so far is the intigration in to the phone system, right now, not so much of a problem, but if things pick up then I'll be able to get a few people involved.  Which is good since the phone system will try and connect a contact to their account manager.

It's fully online so I don't need to get physical phones involved and it even works via browser, so I can really do things from anywhere.

Since my laptop is not having life though, I'm getting one of my old PCs to be a dedicated work unit, to make things a bit simplier and better.

I've also brought across my work email domain cw.nf to Yandex Mail, which is intigrated with the CRM.  It's a bit different, but everything is going well for the moment.  Basically this is my saturday night, I'm getting old, clearly.
