Entertainment & Technology / Re: Website / Webserver / email migration stuff

If you don't want to keep hosting the sites and want to shut them down I'd simply migrate all your email to Gmail along with switching to SmugMug, just do each site in turn, Gmail will allow you to import your whole mailbox, no problem.

If you do want to keep the hosting and domains, I'd probably move it all to 1&1, who actually are very reliable and fast and make managing multiple sites very easy. In terms of shared hosting, they are the ones I've had the best experience with and VFM. If you don't want to pay for many domains and the sites aren't for google indexing/search rank, you could set them up under subdomains like

I've owned my zpyder domain for probably close to two decades, and since then have added other domains.

It's all currently hosted on shared hosting on Hostgator. They've been great in terms of uptime, value for money etc. The only downsides now are that the sites are very slow to load, which is a bummer when they're essentially about photography, and that I've got a bunch of semi-active email addresses I barely use but occasionally something important comes through.

Flickr recently got bought by SmugMug. And it's got me thinking that I might stop paying for my flickr pro account, and make one good photography site on smugmug. If I do this, I don't also want to be spening the $18 a month on my hostgator account (there's no point really is there?)

But I also do not want to lose my emails. So the question is, what do you guys recommend, in terms of a process/service for shutting down my hostgator sites and migrating multiple email addresses/domains to something cheaper? There must be a few products out there that are simply email hosting and no websites?

Entertainment & Technology / Re: Buying & selling PC parts - liable to income tax?

I believe you have an allowance each year as the parts are used, i think they are more interested in chasing Ebay traders doing £5000 a month tax free and claiming benefits full time for a non existent ankle sprain.

I know a bloke claiming full rate incapacity benefit and yet manages to walk round bootsales for hours looking for items to sell through his Ebay business which is made £20k on last year.
Entertainment & Technology / Buying & selling PC parts - liable to income tax?
« Last post by Hamsel on June 07, 2018, 19:08:49 PM »
Hello :) I have a (fairly boring) topic I'm curious about - taxes. I buy and sell all sorts of computer parts on top of my full time job for an extra handful of cash, generally spent on more computer parts, and I am intrigued - is HMRC going to be hunting me down for unpaid taxes? I've not a clue how self assessment forms work and can't find much to help me figure them out. I've looked at this tax calculator: and worked out how much tax I currently pay (a lot!!) but haven't been able to work out what the income from selling parts would be. What tax band would it go into? Hoping someone here does similar and can point me to an answer :)

It isn't going to vanish anytime soon so get used to it. As we get closer to the leave date it can only get louder.

Very little really but that's not the point, they cheated. Yes, the Lib-Dems and Remain got done too, but just a fraction of the amount for a technical infringement for Remain.

The real issue here is that the Electoral Commission wanted to drop the case against Leave EU and were forced to keep it open. They then did nothing until a whistle blower blew the whole thing open.
Im sick of earing about this

Three Italian nuns die and go to heaven.
At the Pearly Gates, they are met by St. Peter.

He says, "Sisters, you all led such exemplary
lives that the Lord is granting you six months
to go back to earth and be anyone you wish to be.

The first nun says, "I want to be Sophia Loren."
And poof she's gone.

The second says, "I want to be Madonna”.
And poof she's gone.

The third says, "I want to be Alberta Pipalini."

St. Peter looks perplexed. "Who ?", he asked.

"Alberta Pipalini," replies the nun.

St. Peter shakes his head and says, "I'm sorry,
but that name just doesn't ring a bell."

The nun then takes a newspaper out of her
habit and hands it to St. Peter.

St. Peter reads the paper and starts laughing.
He hands it back to her and says, "No sister,
the paper says it was the 'Alberta Pipeline'
that was laid by 1,400 men in 6 months."

If you laugh, you're going straight to hell!
