The internet is back!

I must say, I am very pleased with Verizon FIOS tech support. I've had consistently good experiences with them, which is unusual for an internet provider.

That said: Most of the Inbox update is written (including two subscriber bonus pages), and now that I can get online reliably I look forward to making that update.

The message board is currently not working (8:07 EST). If it still isn't working in a few hours, I'll try to contact that tech support. I've been a little less pleased with my server this fall than I have been with the internet. As always, this blog is here for updates.

[update] Tech support says they're "working on their servers" and the problem should be fixed shortly. Those of you who have been around much the last few months know this is a familiar story. I'm not sure if I'm ready to jump ship just yet (if I do, it would have to be in summer, so I have time to devote to the change-over) but in case I do, does anyone have suggestions of a reliable web-server? I'm currently with IX Web Hosting, and have been for years with minimal problems until the past six months or so.

[update] Message boards seem to be back.

[update] FIOS is over here again, updating all the equipment. Apparently the stuff the previous owners had is outdated, which is why we're having problems.


  1. 1and1. Cheap, reliable, never had a problem with it. And when I've always received quick responses to questions.

  2. I just read the updated Inbox and I'm loving it so far. It's a very different medium for communicating a story with a lot of characters - or at least it's new to me - but it's really fun. Thanks for taking the time to do it. Sorry to hear about all the technology troubles!

    Happy New Year!
