Most Perplexing and somewhat annoying. [Dec. 20th, 2004|03:41 am]

VampGirl.com doesn't seem to exist.

It seems to be a holding page for acornlodge.net - which presumably is some old peoples home by the sounds of it. Have I been retired?

I think what's happened is I didn't recieve notification of hosting renewal this month - and I think my hosting has expired. I think this explains why I can't get in via ftp either...

I think I'm going to have to wait till January before I can put the site back up as well - I don't get any pay till Xmas eve. Bugger!!

Thank gawd I have the site backed up on a cd somewhere... Will be lacking a few things I've chucked on there lately, but no change in pages or anything - just random files and mp3s and whatnot...

OH BUGGERATIONALS!!!

ANNOYANCE!!!

etc etc etc etc

EDIT: NOW IT'S BACK AGAIN!! WTF IS GOING ON?? AAAAAAAA!!!!!!

I'm making another backup just in case. I'm still not sure whether or not I'm uptodate on payment because I upgraded later in the year and I have no recollection of when exactly:/

crappy web providers are teh suck.

I'm glad that Telewest/blueyonder's hosting is (relatively) good.. i've not had too much downtime at all.

Ghoulnet are ok - at least they're fairly cheap considering the amount I get and whatnot, but they're support leaves a lot to be desired. No further explanation than 'can you try this again now please' when they've fixed it - and they never seem to notice anything wrong till I mail them lol!!

Shame. Damn cool name!!

Details!!! Pwease??

Mine's fairly good, 100mb space with lots of extras and with high transfer/bandwidth and stuff, but is rather costly at 65 quid a year.

if you do a google search for your site, and each page or pages of it then instead of clicking on the immediate link to the site (which will be dead, by what you say) then click on the link that says "cached" and you should find the last active version of each page, and from that you can recover anything not backed up

google is cool like that, it acts as a temporary backup : )
