Web and e-mail problems
As my regular readers and correspondents have noticed, I've been having problems with the company hosting my Web site. (Echolima.com in the Toronto area, if anyone wants to know whom to avoid.) They've recently changed ownership, and have had unexplained days-long Web and DNS server failures.
I apologize for the outages and any inconvenience caused.
I'm in the process of moving to a new, more expensive but hopefully more reliable host, Rackforce in Kelowna, B.C. (the host for Airtreks.com during the time that our software development team relocated to the Okanagan).
(Why, you may ask, is my site hosted in Canada when I'm in the USA? In part, in order to give my e-mail correspondents and visitors to my Web site the privacy protection, to the extent possible, of Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act [PIPEDA].)
In the meantime (until New Years, by which time I expect to have everything set up and debugged on the new host):
- If you get, or have gotten, a message that your e-mail to me is undeliverable, or you don't get an answer, please try again or give me a phone call.
- If you try, or have tried, to subscribe to my newsletter and don't get a confirmation message that you have subscribed successfully, please send me an e-mail message or try again after 1 January 2006.
- If something doesn't work on my Web site (especially searches, comments, or other dynamic features of this blog), please try again later. Some features will be unavailable during the move.
