Well, crapola. I just got an email from my web hosting guy. Starting tomorrow at ten a.m., they will be migrating everything to a new server. And during this migration, I will not be permitted to post any new content.
Now, the site won’t be down exactly. I think you’ll still be able to visit PatriotRetort.com. I just can’t add any new posts during the time the migration takes place.
Crap. Crap. Crap. Stupid migration!
I’m assuming the majority of sites they host are relatively static and don’t add new content every single day. Plus, a lot of them are websites for businesses that will be closed for the holiday weekend anyway. So setting up the migration over New Year’s weekend is no big thing for them.
But for me?
What if something BIG happens over the weekend and I’m stuck here watching it unfold without being able to write a thing?! Stupid migration!
It’s a net plus, sure. The migration to a new server will speed things up and improve their hosting abilities, so I’m glad for that. But, crap on a cracker! New Year’s Day?! I always feature the artwork of the very talented Janet Burroff every New Year’s. And she’s working on her 2021 piece even as I write this.
With this server migration, I’ll either have to rush her to get it done before midnight so I can post it lickety-split, or I’ll have to wait until January 3rd at the earliest.
Any old how. I’ve ranted enough.
But I figured I should give you guys a heads up just in case you stop by every day this weekend and think I either dropped dead or was having the mother of all Lupus flares.
If you really want to cheer me up over this damn server migration, how’s about you make a donation to PatriotRetort.com? Today is the last day of the 2020 End-of-Year Fundraiser. Making a donation would turn my frown upside down for sure.
Hopefully this migration goes smoothly and Monday (at the latest) I’ll be back to it.
It’s the Final Day of the End-of-Year Fundraiser!
