My dinner with Indulgence was fun, too, even if I would up spending far too much money on it; I feel like scheduling a chat with Regret the morning after was a bad idea. Most recently, though, I decided to have some conversations with studios. Not their representatives, but with the actual studios themselves. Some of those conversations went better than others, though. You don’t need to take my word for it, though; I included the most interesting ones just past the break.

If you are one of the regular readers of ShoutMeLoud, you might have noticed frequent downtime and theme changes in last couple of days. There are many reasons for the same and one of them was my hosting server. I was on Linode VPS and despite of being one of the powerful unmanaged VPS server, my site was going down again and again. Though the reason might be due to some bugged WordPress plugin and also some issues with updated W3 total cache plugin.
