Overcoming Technology

springboguesoundwmAs is often the case, technology is wonderful when it works and not so much when it does not. My problem started when I tried to use the automatic backup software from my hosting provider.  It failed in mid-backup and left lots of strange files and destroyed a few files.  I got the site back up but my email quit working. I talked to the technical people to resolve the email issue and in their infinite wisdom they decided my site had been hacked and took it down.  They offered me a solution, which would have cost $600 a year to fix the problem which their backup software inflicted on me. I declined their solution. Eventually they gave me a list of over 500 PHP files that they wanted removed.  I removed them all but of course WordPress depends on PHP to run and I have been unable to get my hosted WordPress site up and going again.  Fortunately this site is fine. While I continue to work on the other site in my limited spare time, I have brought back a number of posts as flat HTML files.  They can be found at this new landing site for my Crystal Coast Life blog.

Summer 2017 Wraps Up

We have enjoyed a great summer here on the Crystal Coast. The weather has been great for enjoying the water. While we had some hot spells and some rain, we dodged the bullet of big storms and days of rain.  Even the fishing has been good since the first of August.
