Another Outage Update.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:24 pm

As many of you know, Craig of mtpolitics.net (the nicest guy in the Blogosphere), has voluntarily undertaken the care and feeding of this blog since January 16, 2004, when he moved PRS from BlogSpot. Yes, it’s true. This Jersey blog resides in a magic box somewhere in Montana. Over the years, Craig has patiently, and with good humor, put up with my dumb questions and occasional cyber-doofus hysterics.

About a year or so ago, the webhosting service, without notice, “SUSPENDED” its service, publicly giving the impression on its obnoxious, bullshit screen that it was owed money. Wrong. The problem then was “too much spam and the algorithms in Movable Type used to block spam.” To placate the knuckleheads at the hosting service and one hysterical knucklehead in New Jersey, Craig switched this site to WordPress. Since then, he has done a couple WordPress updates for me, each time tolerating my stupid questions and hysterics.

As a result of the most recent turd tossed our way by the hosting service, Craig will be moving our sites to a new webhost. As such, there may be some outages while he works his techno-magic and while I stumble around trying to do the one or two things I have to do (change the host name somewhere or other – I forget).

So, if the place goes dark, or shows up in purple and yellow, you’ll know that my good friend Craig is somewhere in Montana again getting my shit together.

I cannot thank him enough.


  1. Thanks for the update-a Joisey blog hosted in Montana? -doesn’t sound possible. Hope this goes smoothly as this is a fun place to read and visit.

  3. I freaking LOVE Craig. He and Dogette are, without a doubt, my favorite friends whom I have never met. Love them!

  4. So long as you’re able to blog and the dippy ISP doesn’t cut you off it’s all good. Sorry you’ve been stuck with this nonsense (both of you)

  5. Ah, I dunno. I use cheap-ass Blogspot. It’s free.

    But then again, I don’t have a Custom-Designed Blodge.

    The takeaway here is, you’ve got a good friend in Craig. And the Bloggy-Sphere is a place where I’ve found plenty of ’em. Like you, Hairboy.

  6. I use Hosting Matters. I have no idea where they are located, but their tech support people are fantastic; very quick response to emails and any problems.

  8. If anyone cares, I use Hosting Matters too. Their support is outstanding and NOT in India.

  9. MONTANA? Holy crap Jim, I would have figured you’d have this blog hosted down under Cheyenne Mountain!
