Site Back Up, Move Tonight

TalkLeft went down this morning for a few minutes. The hosting company says they are moving it to a new server tonight after 9pm ET. If you have difficulty reaching it after that, clear your cache and refresh. Site moves usually take about 48 hours for the glitches to go away.

This is separate from the redesign to Scoop which will fix the commenting problems. That redesign is taking longer than the Scoophost folks expected and it has to be tested. I'll keep you posted.

    It's like Christmas keeps getting pushed back. Well, okay, not like Christmas per se. Maybe Fitzmas? ;)

    Jeralyn, if that's you fixing my anonymous posts, thank you! Here's hoping everything goes well with the move tonight!

    Good luck! We appreciate all that you do on our behalf. One of the things we say in my current position is that 'software takes longer and costs more' ;-)

    Thanks, no one is more frustrated than me. It's been a month I've been besieged with trying to separate out spam from real comments and I do it ever few hours at least. It's been cutting down on my time to actually blog. Thank goodness for TChris and Big Tent. The worst part is that should the scoop site not be what I envisioned, not only do I have to pay anyway for its construction (a few thousand dollars), I'll be back to ground zero. Since I've already committed to the construction of the Scoop site, I'm going to give the builders the time they need to make it as good as they can.

    I left my job on friday over 'disagreements' ;-) with the owners attitude, somewhat similar to bushco psychology, of "screw the customers, I got their money". So I'm out of here for the afternoon to arrange another one. It never takes long. Should have something by tommorow. I need to start getting some contributiuons to you again - it's been too long. Thanks for keeping the place running, Jeralyn!

    I was going to say: "I hope you're not paying these Scoop guys by the hour, because they seem to be making a career out of it."
