Well that took A LOT longer than anticipated, but my Bassic Sax website is now finally moved to its new home on a VPS at a different hosting company. We’ve had some hiccups along the way—quite a few actually—none of them have been under our control.
That said, over the weekend the domain was re-directed, and with all the pizazz of a light switch being turned off, my website vanished for just over 24 hours while my previous hosting company/domain registrar managed to find one more way to complicate my life. Yesterday, through the efforts of a good friend, dedicated tech, and fellow vintage saxophone researcher, Bassic Sax reappeared, and now I can finally do some much-needed updating. Yeah!!
What’s a new home if not full of housekeeping chores?
1. Yes, I know there are comments missing. Because the database that was used to re-create this site was a couple of weeks old, any comments since that database was downloaded are currently not present.
Have no fear. If you left a comment in the past two weeks, it did not get lost. I will be restoring those comments in the next few days. There is just a lot I have to do before I can do that. I promise you though, I will get those comments up soon, and get some replies posted as well.
2. If you are real person (vs a spambot) and registered to be a user on Bassic Sax Pix in the last few months, but have not yet received a confirmation email from me yet, please re-register.
I purposely hadn’t made any gallery changes at the request of my tech person for a couple of months now. 4Images gallery is hard enough to move as it is. This way he didn’t need to worry about having an up-to-date database to worry about.
So that about does it for my quickie update regarding Bassic Sax finally being in its new home.
One last thing though: I have not yet had a chance to check all the pages of my site, so I don’t know if it is actually working as it should, or if there are things missing.
If you do find things that are broken, or pages that are missing, please email me and let me know. Links to my email are conveniently located at the top, bottom, and right side of each of both this blog’s, and the website’s pages. Thank you!
Hello. I am 1337 h@xxor who has taken over Helen’s site. Ha. Ha. Ha!
Or I’m Pete. Yes; saxpics, thesax.info, woodwindforum.com/forum, etc. In real life, I’m a computer guy.
I re-uploaded all the newer files and the latest database from the old host. It looks pretty god to me. Hey, this post was even saved. I didn’t expect that.
