Site / Server status:recovery mode

(Arrgh factor 10) So I’ve had a major problem with DragonDrop.org. One of those compounded problems that cost time effort and money to fix. One of those problems that seemed to be two steps forward, one step back. I’m on the right road to fixing it though. Apart from billing problems whereby the company I thought was holding it wasn’t – meaning I had an email out of the blue saying “Excuse me, you owe me 4 years hosting”. Another problem whereby the server it was on (called Palmer) died, taking with it a big bunch of the DragonDrop files with it. On top of all that, Blogger who I’ve been friends with for years and years, now owned by google has announced that they are no longer supporting FTP publishing so I’ve got to re think the way it all works..
Every cloud has a silver lining. . .
This all ties in with a thought that I’d wanted to rip it to bits and put it back together again – which is what I’m doing.

I’m getting a fresh batch of T-Shirts printed, ready for you lot and I to take on adventures. I’m hoping to look at DragonDrop and work out what it is and what I want to do with it. It’s got something to do with Adventure but I’m not quite sure what yet. One thing I do know is that it may be down, but it’s not out. Thanks for your patience!

    keep calm and carry on Captain.
    Your blog has undergone a contextual mid-life crisis. This is a necessary thing if the things concerned are to grow. (n stuff). All things happen for a reason. The universe moves in ever increasing mysterious ways, yes she does.
