there is something there (webpage)

The invision people put one of our pages there but its the wrong page,, its one of our temple pages I haven't worked on yet :) I will switch it around later. At least it kinda shows what our website will look like right :) Just missing the most important stuff, the information!!! :)

They are still working on our forum boards, but I believe they will be done today! I really do. The IP Staff as you can tell is awesome. This one I think is addicted now to the challenge, he has been working on this full time from morning until I went on my evening walk he was still working on it, and from home!! Now you tell me if what we will be paying a month is well worth it then the 10 a month and no real tech support as we were goning to pay with Brinkster.
And our host before that was 90.00 a month and sometimes I never heard from her at all when I wrote with questions or needs. So I think 49 a month isn't to bad and they work their bottoms off until it is complete, and if I don't know how to do it, they will do it for me!!

So looking at our main website will give you an idea of what our pages will look like. Not our main intro page or our menu page, but the rest of the pages will look like that, but with info on them and pictures!

back ups and pulling hair out

The host said "everything about this is NOT BEEN EASY so far" You can always tell when the old devil is at work, cuz even the most educated can't even figure out what is happening and why! Its been nothing but an uphill battle trying to get anything to work. For some reason our databases we back up aren't working! That is so frustrating to me and the host! Then if that is not bad enough I have a few annoying flies that keep landing on me when I am trying to get something done here!!! lololololol MAN I CAN'T STAND FLIES!

So it looks like it could be longer to get this up and going. With the comfort forum we may end up having to start all over again! FROM SCRATCH! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

just waiting to hear from host

Right now I have been waiting and waiting. Sunday's they don't seem to respond so I am assuming they do not work on Sunday's. Now I am still waiting which is highly unusual to wait this long for them. I am assuming they must be swamped!

I can't seem to figure out how to publish my pages from the control panel. I know once I get it, I will get it! lol But as of right now I am clueless.

Also I am trying to get them to add my other domains and rid a couple subdomains they added. Frusterating, cuz I would do this myself by can't with out them enabling a setting that is disabled! Anyway .....

Because its Sunday I am not getting a response to my questions which I understand. Anyway I at least got some of our email accounts to work (finally)!!

Now I am trying to learn how to even load the site. I mean i got all of it over there, now its trying to figure out how to publish it where you all see it! The forums should be up tomorrow!

I am getting the run around trying to get our .com site pointed to our new host, and our old host from before Brinkster won't respond to my request to move the .org site! I have no grace right now. I am so frustrated I feel like throwing myself to the floor and throwing a tantrum! Ok I can't use my email because our .com site isn't being pointed over to our new host becuase I do not have access to the old email I used when signing up for the account in 2003 to get our .com domain! Plus they can't email the info account to verify it there either. Then all of a sudden my suppose phone number they tried calling and my answering machine though on won't allow them to leave a message!

GIRLS I am HOT! I may need prayer cuz mamma bear is comming out of her cave. HAIN's reputation is at stake having it offline for so long I am p________________ed

purchased our new host package

I did finally purchase the package. Its 49.00 a month but its well worth it for the awesome support that we have experienced with these guys (with our forums).

Anyway it will be at least 24 hours however, due to waiting for our past host to point our domains to the new hosts and before the web catches up with it.

They are trying to get our forums loaded however!

Gives us time

Being away from the forum gives us time to sit and do a craft for those sweet angels.
I continue to get more NILMDTS requests. Once we get back online I will post the needs.

I started a project awhile back for my cousin's baby. I am stuck in a spot I am not sure how to complete the project. Don't you hate that?

I am probably going to complete the newsletter. LOL I have never had such a problem producing something in my entire life. With all the million distractions it get put on the back burner every time.
I am needing to work on some baby projects for sure. Nice things about booties and hats, is they are fast and easy to complete.

My hubby and my kids and myself went on a walk yesterday. We decided to go swimming on the Calapooia River that runs next to our home. It was so nice. The kids had a blast and surprisingly it was not really cold at all. Its a suprise knowing that much of that water comes off the mountains surounding us.
Its so pretty here. I feel so fortunate to be blessed with this beauty. Its nice to see my kids enjoy life again. They were pretty depressed where we lived before!

When all life gets to me, all I have to do is walk. I need to go out in the shade and knit, that is what I need to do. I used to do that alot when HAIN first started. But then it got so busy that I simply stop taking the time to just relax.

You know being away makes me realize even more just how special our volunteers are. You work and work to give to others and not one of you complain! Your such a huge inspiration to me personally and to one another. Girls I miss you!

I should be working on the website too. Its hard to know what to do because I am not sure what to expect with our new server-hopefully soon!

Well I love you all and will post again soon!

Our email's also down


As you may notice our emails are also down. We are waiting until our old host reimburses us which may not be until Friday. 2-3 business days. Once that happens we will go to invision right away. And should have our craft forum up ASAP. I will be working on changing the looks of it overtime too! Thank you Lord that is not to hard to do. Invision offers codes for doing that pretty quickly!

I will probably put up one page to our website just to get it on. And work on those slowly. I didn't have much time to do aything with all the email and problems with this last host!

Ayway just updating you.

Email my private email if you have any questions. I already sent an email to all of you with that info in it!

Love yeah Mary

While our site is down

Our site is down at the moment. We are rebuilding it! (And also getting a new host)

Anyway I miss all you HAIN addicted members. I know I am addicted...

Post a reply and let us know how you are..
