A post in which your blogger humbly apologises for disappearing for much longer than she intended and warns of a complete disappearance in about an hour’s time as I switch hosts. I’ll be changing the name server information in about an hour and it can take up to 48 hours to propogate around the globe, fingers crossed all goes well and I’ll be putting the “a post a day, come what may” mantra into action. Ahem.
The host I’ve happily been using for the past two years has been having dreadful problems of late, including a random Trojan download (yikes! and a big thank you to Stroppy for the alert and detailed information).
Happily, my brother has just started blogging, needed hosting and has generously offered me free space in return for providing customized WordPress themes (great fun) and 24/7 tech support. Bless.
So I’m switching to VidaHost, which if the first 24 hours is anything to go by will be rather good – support emails replied to within minutes and includes a friendly security phonecall (the purchaser IP in Qatar and the address in the UK needed checking) and remaining totally unfazed while for the first five minutes I thought he was a fellow blogger ringing to say he was on his way…
If your eyes have glazed over by now you might like to cheer at the news that the post title was supplied by Jane and Roy‘s reaction when we arrived for supper last night. I’ve not seen them for a few months so their amazement at the weight loss to date was embarrassing but much appreciated.
See you on the other side.
