We’ve moved !!!
Â It looks like our move was completed successfully just moments ago with the help of our fantastic tech guy, Nikola. If anyone needs quality web work done, let me know and I will put you in touch with Nik. I have had a quick looksee and it looks like everything is working fine and that we are back in business, so to speak. I will have a closer look and do more thorough testing tomorrow. Â However, please, please, please, if you find anything not workingÂ or notice any bugs or strange behavior, contact me at rextutor at gmail. Â so that we may attend to it soonest.
It has been a long, expensive and traumatic three weeks geting the infection cleaned and the websites moved to a new home. It feels more like three months!Â We certainly do apologize for the downtime and any inconvenience to you, loyal members. Â Thank you for your patience and sticking with us.
Nice digs, eg?
Remember the old gag? Â What’s the difference between a neurotic and a psychotic?
A neurotic builds castles in the air. Â A psychotic lives in them. Â And a psychaitrist collects the rent. Â Bada bing! Â Hehehe . . .
Twice in the past year we have been hacked and infected, and the hosting company we have been hosting with for 10 years was unable to prevent nor help with the problem. It has been a costly and traumatic learning process, not to mention being annoying to our members.
As a final stage in the restoration of our sites, we are moving to a new host which promises to provide better service and protection against future incidents (and if there are future incidents, prompt help with dealing with that). This is all good news, but will require some more down time. I am told the process will only take 24 hours, but that is the best case scenario, but we will be back with you soonest.
I anticipate starting the move tomorrow, on Monday 25 August 2014. I am not sure if we will be able to leave a “We’ moving” notice online while the move is taking place, so this may be the only news you see before errors messages. But if that happens, give it 12 hours and try again.
At the risk of stealing from that brilliant 20th Century Philosopher, Arnold Schwarzenegger, “I’ll be back . . . “
For hosting, maintenance, check with Jim Walker at https://tvcnet.com/online/Â He has been a lifesaver for us, and I am not being paid to say that, but may become an affiliate at some point.
