This is getting embarrassing.

We are taking steps right now to move to another host but will be stuck with iPower for a few more weeks.

In the meantime, now's a great opportunity for peakbaggers to discover the rest of the park through this forum!

Not good.....c'mon - you don't just cut off an addict without methadone at the ready. Do you have any idea what the addicts are going through as we speak?

Makes you appreciate it all the more if it comes back on-line.

While we wait let's talk about the trail run or perhaps the other 54 book.

The host for my BIL's site changed servers to Google hosting. It was initially a disaster. Make sure your new host has done their homework.

The good news is that we have brought on an expert to help transition to a new server. Well I think he is going to..........but then again...........this might just scare the poop out of him. I hope not we really need his help

Just heard from the real webmaster and we have been a target of a viral attack .......again, so much for security. They are working on it now and hopefully will be resolved in a few hours.

Was it a retro virus or just one of these?

Like I said earlier, we are currently working to move ADKHP away from iPower. Hopefully, we'll find a host that has better defenses against viral attacks.

Bummer...

And I was just going to order a dozen calenders. I'm even wearing my foil hat, I'm cancelling my thruway pass, and I'm burning my cell phone. "THEY" are after us. I feel a greater conspiracy.
Jack, if I'm wrong, let me know and I'll meet you for lunch and pick up some calenders.

I always said, just because you know you are paranoid it doesn't mean that "they" are not out to get you
Lunch..........yeah I can work that out. Give me a call.

I just got off the phone with tech support and in resolving our virus problem they have us at level 3 support (don't ask me what that means but it is their highest level of priority) and ADKHP should be up and running within 24 hours.

Additionally, they said to have a wonderful day.
