If you want advice there's advice in this thread of hosts to use. Otherwise there's also webhostingtalk.com, where you will find a few others recommended, but the three you mention not mentioned at all apart from complaints.

You've just listed probably the three worst hosts in existence. I actually charge more to my clients if I have to work with any of those three, as I know I am going to have more problems with them than any other host I have ever worked with.

I think this is related to the situation where many advertising "award" winners are not actually ever used for actual campaigns (lot of stories/controversy about that). Something what works for the target audience (whether that be consumers or your client) isn't always liked as much by other industry "experts" - or even yourself.

Came across this today, from a few years back but very good and thought it worth a share: http://designobserver.com/feature/graphic-design-criticism-as-a-spectator-sport/37607/
And figured folk could post other share-worthy articles they had come across on logo design/branding, one of the most difficult areas of graphic design.

Well from what I can tell you don't seem overly interested in design related things so I'm not sure what to say but if I was you, I'd look at all the things you are interested in and work towards something that lets you do that. I was interested and liked design before I started working in it.
You listed you like these things:
Nature, bushwalking, travel, psychology/philosophy, music (listening)
Some work opportunities I can think of that don't involve looking at a screen.
– working live music venue or bar
– working outdoors in nature – agriculture, building
– travel – why not travel for a while and work at hostels, music venues and bars etc
as @dave was saying, I don't think you have to jump into anything yet, enjoy life, don't force yourself to do anything if you don't feel it

@CAMOR The advantage is that you email receipts to a receipt bank address (of your choosing) or simply phone pic an upload for a paperless office.
@dave fair enough. Xero offers pretty standard small business and bookkeeper features so not full of stuff most won't use. For me its time spent on bookkeeping vs features i wont use. In the 20 years of running my business its the first that i know whats happening at every level in my bookkeeping. Worth the $50 / month.
