Site Downtime
« on: July 03, 2015, 02:14:34 PM »
I'm in the process of moving a few of my sites to a new hosting service. I'm hoping to get this site done over the weekend. So if you see the site is in maintenance mode you'll know why :)


Got stung with an excess bandwidth charge this month and the current host won't waive it, loyal customer and all so I'm jumping ship :)

thanks casper.  And thanks for keeping the site going. 

As to charges, what is it costing you?

I wouldn't mind making a contribution to your costs and I'm sure there's a few others might help also.

Hi guys, many thanks for the offers of help. The monthly running of the site is minimal as I have a couple of other websites on the same server, so I don't mind this cost. However this site and one of my other forums did push the bandwidth this month over my allowance. So for the last two days of June I was charged nearly 100 for the excess bandwidth. I think this is extortionate and have told the hosting company this but they refuse to waive it. So I'm jumping ship - that's why the site was down for a while, I've moved server.
The members of my other forum also offered to help and to be honest I succumbed and reluctantly accepted it, so I will do the same here.
My paypal account is mcarbery@gmail.com

The offers of help are very much appreciated.
