The Blog Is Back!…. sort of

OK. For those who haven’t been to my humble site in a while… you haven’t missed much. In fact, you’ve missed anything. Because of a major crash at my former hosting service, has been offline for over eight days. Notice I said former hosting service. I just transfered my domain hosting services a new company called Just Host. There is a strong likelihood that I have lost almost three years of blog history, which does not please me at all, but I was not getting much if any info concerning the core of the problems at the old hosting service. I had written them on several occasions asking for more info concerning the crash, and including the fact that I do have IT training and understand the lingo. A few days ago I got an email saying this:


We need to file-check against every account manually before restoring it. This is the reason for the delay. It will be completed within 5-6 hours. I ho

Yes, that is the message en-toto. It ends at I ho.  You can understand why I was frustrated and decided to part ways with this service provider. It’s too bad too, because I haven’t had any problems up til now; their service had been pretty reliable. But when the problems came, I was not treated as a valued customer, so it’s time to move on.  I may have lost all my previous bloggy stuff, including the modifications to the layout and a couple of long unfinished drafts concerning California’s continuing water woe’s and budget soap opera (there’s a chance I may be able to recover the old blog data, a slim chance) and eight days worth of e-mail (who cares), but the new host provides more features, more storage space and multiple domain hosting capabilities, all at lower cost. So I’ll call it a push.

Anyway, It feels good to be online again.
