And I’m back

I’m pleased to announce that this blog is now back online. I’d like to apologize to my readers for the lengthy delay. The original plan was to move to a new hosting service over the weekend before New Year’s Day and be back up in time to celebrate 2007. Unfortunately, the best laid plans of mice and men…

Originally I had everything downloaded from my previous service by December 28. So on December 29, I contacted the new service I had decided to go with. I had some experience with their services, as they currently hose the website for Paths of the Old Ways, and a friend had nothing but wonderful things to say about them. Unfortunately, my experiences were radically different. Let’s just say that despite charging my credit card for a two year subscription on December 29, they had not provided me with the details to log into my account and upload my site when I called and demanded a refund this morning. And this was in spite of the fact that I contacted them several times via email and phone to get this information. Each time I talked to them, i was assured that the matter would be taken care of “immediately,” only to be forgotten immediately instead.

Fortunately, I spent today finding a much more attentive and responsive company to host this blog and my other sites. Indeed, despite the fact that I only signed on with them today, they’ve worked with me to get everything set up in under eight hours. So to my new hosting service, I say, “Thank you and may the gods smile upon you always.”

Beyond that, I hope everyone had a pleasant New Year. Mine was okay, though somewhat darkened by a family tragedy. But I’ll go into more details about that in an upcoming entry.
