Looking for spacefem.com?

Heh... got online after work today only to find that my site was down. Why? Because my DOMAIN NAME EXPIRED. oops!

So I spent like 30 minutes trying to jump over dotster's crappy system errors to renew. Things still aren't all together, but apparently in the next 24 hours life should be back to normal.

It's nice that only 1/3 of the useless blobs are hosted on spacefem.com these days, so life will go on as usual for a lot of people.

Except for some reason, I can see the forum members really freaking out about this... they'll have to go outside or something! noooo! I'll read all about it tomorrow.

Silly me, who'd of thought that whole "one year registration" thing would sneak up so fast? I renewed for two years, for the record. phew.

so I just typed here to exress utmost releif.

duhhh...
ok, so I'm a big dork... instead of looking here to see if you finally noticed, I just spent far too long trying to track down your phone number... I also just sent you a message to let you know it was partly down... uhh...

I also posted this earlier today, hoping that maybe you'd see it... oh well.

Re: duhhh...
that was actually probably the right thing to do, thanks. this was scary for me, too, to see that i might no longer own spacefem.com... turns out I was listed as the owner for the site still but the administrative, technical, and billing contacts were still set as the guy I bought it from in new york so I never got notices about its upcoming demise.

Things should be okay soon, I'm a little tiffed that they aren't okay this morning but according to dotster the name should be alright within 24 hours, so let's give it until 5:00 before we start another panic.

Re: duhhh...
Actually, you know what? I'm going to e-mail you from work, I'll write down your yahoo address before I leave and see if the servers at the place of employment block us from sending to yahoo. they might. but I'll die without updates on this situation all day!

Re: duhhh...
spacefem.com was resolving from my home last night, and now this afternoon (3:00 EST), it is finally resolving properly from work (it hadn't been this morning).

Looks like things are returning to normal.

Hijacked
Sorry spacefem. Looks like it's already been hijacked. :(

Very, very sorry. Good to see that Sporkopolis was trying to look after you.

Hope it's only one of those redirection creeps. Don't have your IP to check that.

spacefem.com and www.spacefem.com are getting me nothing but advertising garbage and a bunch of (attempted) pop up junk.

Do hope I'm dead wrong. And, yes, I can see your 'flock' emailing you at spacefem.com of course. :(

Re: Hijacked
no, don't worry, I managed to renew it. at least, according to dotster, I officially own it for the next two years. I just don't know why they're screwing with my name servers still... arg!

I was rather shocked to see both the forum and main site down, I'm glad I remembered that you had a LiveJournal so I could end my panic, I look forward to the sites return

if you were shocked, imagine how i felt... heh.

no, by 5:00 tonight the site should be up as usual. If not, well, keep reading the journal, it'll get really good.

I still can't see it.
it's 6:12 and I cant see the site or the forum. It still redirects me to dotster. Should I panic yet?

I DID freak out.
I am still freaking out! OpenDiary was down, too, so I sat at my computer, compulsively checking my email every five minutes... nothing to do! I am still very worried. I miss the forum. I have a life, I really do... I've just grown a little attatched to you and Fern and Amy and MFS and Ingryd and everyone. Even Zarathustra, for heavens sake.

And I also wanted to tell you!: I got your card in the mail and it made my day! Thank you! -love, blakechorusgirl
