The internet is back!

I must say, I am very pleased with Verizon FIOS tech support. I've had consistently good experiences with them, which is unusual for an internet provider.

That said: Most of the Inbox update is written (including two subscriber bonus pages), and now that I can get online reliably I look forward to making that update.

The message board is currently not working (8:07 EST). If it still isn't working in a few hours, I'll try to contact that tech support. I've been a little less pleased with my server this fall than I have been with the internet. As always, this blog is here for updates.

[update] Tech support says they're "working on their servers" and the problem should be fixed shortly. Those of you who have been around much the last few months know this is a familiar story. I'm not sure if I'm ready to jump ship just yet (if I do, it would have to be in summer, so I have time to devote to the change-over) but in case I do, does anyone have suggestions of a reliable web-server? I'm currently with IX Web Hosting, and have been for years with minimal problems until the past six months or so.

[update] Message boards seem to be back.

[update] FIOS is over here again, updating all the equipment. Apparently the stuff the previous owners had is outdated, which is why we're having problems.


  1. Message boards are down again. SQL error?

  2. Look up Demontech Hosting!
    My boyfriend is running it and from what I've heard there ar next to no problems at all with it. I don't use it myself right now but when I did, I had no trouble with it.

    Take care,

  3. 1and1. Cheap, reliable, never had a problem with it. And when I've always received quick responses to questions.

  4. I just read the updated Inbox and I'm loving it so far. It's a very different medium for communicating a story with a lot of characters - or at least it's new to me - but it's really fun. Thanks for taking the time to do it. Sorry to hear about all the technology troubles!

    Happy New Year!
