    For ski history buffs....re: my site

    Thanks to all of you who have sent me emails, PM's and AIM's regarding my site being down. I am aware that it is once again down. It was down a good part of Sunday and then came on for a while. It went down again on Monday some time and has been down since. The PROBLEM is with the SERVER. I have asked them for an ETA but can not get one, they just say soon. They have been saying this since about 6 last night.



    For those who asked...NO, I have not given up on the site...Yes, I have paid my bill, and NO, I do not want to sell the site....



    Thanks for asking and thanks for letting me know the site is down.

    UPDATED: SEPT. 27, 2005 @ 4:00PM PT - We regret to inform you that the recent security update of our Windows servers did not complete successfully on one of the machines. We are currently investigating to find out why the update failed to install properly and are getting ready to reinstall the update once again while taking additional precautions to ensure a problem-free installation. We estimate about 12 hours until the update is finalized and tested. Sites should start popping back up during this time.

    Pretty unacceptable. Get a new host. JaguarPC has been great for us.

    I hope they get it back up soon, though I think I'd be looking for a more reliable host.

    Mistake #1 : Your website is hosted on an IIS based Windows server.

    Depending on how much bandwidth you server up, www.hostway.com is pretty good.

    If you are looking for a new host take a look at Site5. Their rates seem pretty good (at least they were when I ordered, haven't shopped around recently) and their service has been excellent.

    If you decide to switch don't let the price be the only factor, there are hosting review sites out there where you can people's first hand experiences with a particular company.

    Hell, go nuts. Do it yourself! Buy a static IP internet connection and get yourself a cheap Mac Mini

    Or, for the more hardcore, run a red-hat box

    I think that's one of the sites I used to research my current host, seems like they still fair pretty well over there...

    This it getting pretty OT isn't it?

    I always thought it would be cool to do something like that...
