Anyway, we fixed that, not once but several times, but not without difficulties, and when it finally became apparent that the problem would keep recurring, we junked the new host and went back to the old one. And even that is not without problems. We lost the site again, got it back up, lost email, recovered it... but only partially. At the moment, I can receive email, but for the past two days I have not been able to send any out. So if you've sent me email and are awaiting a response... well, you'll need to wait longer, until we get this all fixed. My webmaster and my assistant are working on it.
Meanwhile, in hopes of a more permanent solution, I have taken the first steps to moving the site to the big servers at Random House, which should be able to handle ANY amount of web traffic. The RH tech wizards are now getting involved. There may be more disruption during the changeover, but my hope is that once the move is done, all these problems will be behind us.
Right now the site will be moving in its present form, but we're also in the midst of a complete redesign. A whole new look. I hope you'll like it.
Anyway... thanks for all your patience, and if you notice that my site is down again today or tomorrow or whenever, that's why. No need to email me about it. I know. Believe me, I know. And while I might be able to read your email, I would not be able to answer it in any case.
