A Blue Perspective: Unplugged

It's kind of bad when, on the same weekend, your web host decides to cut off service for non-payment without sending you a bill, and then there's a mix-up with your domain name which means it ceases to be registered. Ah well, I'm sure no one noticed.

In the meantime, while I'm gearing up to switch hosts, there might some service interruptions. So if you come knocking and I'm not here just leave the biscuits by the door and come round the day after.

    I also, glad you're back up. Who's your new host? People are always asking about good hosting...

    Sorry to hear about that. Had the same happen to me a while back and we had to switch too. Amazing how little some hosting company's understand that they are offering a service and client satisfaction should be #1 on the list. We are doing them a favor by using their service, not the other way around

    good luck on the move!

    You had me worried. Nearly gave me a panic attack.

    The red font in SharpReader is kinda hard to miss... but with the site down, how can we complain? ;)

    I'm moving to Media Temple. Used them for another site and they seem pretty good.

    Serves me right for going with someone who has AAA in their name :o]

    Well, I guess everyone noticed. I was totally shocked. But this is a lot better.

    Yay, it's back. I hope I never have to go through something like that.
