Hi everyone, At this time, the hosting agreement for the klaatu.org domain is about to expire. Last February I paid for a year with CI Host, and a week or so later they sold my hosting agreement to X7 Hosting. That company has referred to me as being on a "free trial" since that time (even though it cost me $240.00!) and the move caused things like the majordomo mailing list to no longer work since the new company doesn't offer that service as part of their hosting package. Because of that, we ended up with a new version of the mailing lists on freelists.org, which has in turn led to posts being searchable on google and yahoo, etc. I've not been happy with X7 hosting as many things don't work right and they take the approach that I'm on a "free trial period" and don't seem to want to give me any support. SO! As a result of this, I'm considering moving the page this month to a new hosting company. I've already signed up and am in the process of setting things up on the new server. However, to truly try things out, I need to point my DNS entries to the new hosting company to see how the page comes up. THIS MAY CAUSE AN OUTAGE OF THE KLAATU.ORG SITE! The mailing list will continue to function as it does now since it's not with my site's hosting and servers, but is with the independent site, freelists.org. Once I have the new hosting company up and running properly, I'll work on setting up a mailing list on my own domain again and get things working there and transition the mailing lists back to a klaatu.org controlled one (with private archives). In the meantime, the mailing list should work fine and I'll update you as things happen. If the website becomes unavailable for a period of time over the next couple of weeks, PLEASE bear with me. I may switch back and forth between the old hosting company and the new one several times before my old agreement expires and the new one becomes the main (paid) one on February 17th. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Dave Bradley Klaatu webmaster P.S. Jaimie, don't send any new updates to the server at this time until I have things worked out and give you details with the new hosting company. Thanks.
