Honestly, I really do have better things to do than annoy you, dear readers, with the minutiae of my ongoing adventure as I move this site from one hosting company to another. But since there’s at least an outside chance that the old hosting company is going to screw up and pull the plug on this site before they’re supposed to, I wanted to post a warning.
The new site is in place, but grinzo.com still points here, to the old one. When talking to tech support people at the old company just minutes ago, in an attempt to get them to unlock the domain name so I can transfer it to a new registrar (don’t ask), they wanted to kill off my account (and this site) now. I made it abundantly clear to them that they should not do this, and that I would call when I had finished the transfer of the site’s contents and wanted the old site sent to bit heaven. But the communication challenges were formidable, to say the least, and even though I was quite insistent I’m not convinced everything will go as planned.
So, if everything goes well, you won’t see any disruption in the availability of this site. If the old hosting company screws up, you’ll be sans TCOE for a few days while I scramble around behind the scenes trying to get things patched together with the blogosphere equivalent of duct tape, bailing wire, and spit.
You may now return to your regularly scheduled blogging….
