We're Back!!!

  ...Never, ever, ever, use EasyCGI for web hosting!

Published in Site Announcements and Updates by Kevin L. Kitchens on November 21, 2008 23:50

Finally! We're back. What a trip this had been. My goodness. Need to test uploading and will restore it shortly and POTD will resume at midnight. If you care about the reasons, you can click the read more link. But thanks go to the gang at InfoQuest Technologies, our original web hosting service. You don't know what you got until it's gone and Norm, Luke, Brian, Brian and Scott are the best tech support guys ever!

Essentially, we've been having major trouble with EasyCGI since we switched back in April or so. They would take the site down without telling us, claiming traffic problems. Most recently, around the first of this month, they decided to move us to a new server without telling us and breaking many of the site features and postponing the World in Pictures Day! :(

The final straw was on Tuesday, when at 4:30, they killed access to our database server from the website, bring the site to a halt. They simply said that I need to point to the new server. The data of which WAS THREE MONTHS OLD!!! Then I also would not have been able to access our database from our development machines, making site improvements next to impossible.

So that was it! I talked with the folks at Infoquest and decided quality was better than quanity! So here we are. It's taken a bit of time to make some other improvements (notice the no "/" on the URLs for starters...

Anyway, thanks as always for your patience!

Tech headaches are the worst, and I have been through many of them. Glad you are back on line and I look forward to submitting new work shortly.

Yipeeeee! I really missed your site, and had serious withdrawal symptoms. LOL- Grettings from Austria. We had the first snow over night.

Glad the site is back! It's good to know that it wasn't because our leader was ill or incapacitated in some other way. Now my withdrawal symptoms will go away and I won't need a twelve step program!

You don't realize what you have until you don't have it for a few days. I quit cigarettes in one day, but a few days without this site was more difficult to handle. Welcome back! Rich
