Down with phplist

I have had it with phplist! the amount of issues I’ve had with that stupid program are just not worth mentioning. I have officially stopped being a cheapskate now and have paid for a proper mailing list provider at Your Mailing List Provider. so far they seem to have what I want, their tests have so far come up well, they had an extensive free trial) and I wont have to spend hours mucking with it every time I want it to do something.

as far as I can see, the problem is that my server runs php under apache. it’s not it’s own entity but almost a php simulator- diet php, and phplist seems to have massive problems with that. I could spend more and more hours working on it and get more and more frustrated, but as I see it $40 isn’t that much an outlay for a year of stress free newsletters. plus, paying for it may actually encourage me to send them more often.

I will try to make this changeover as smooth as possible, there will be some to-ing and fro-ing but hopefully you subscribers wont actually see anything but newsletters that work the way they’re supposed to.
