In Case You Are Wondering...
No, I have not disappeared and downes.ca is not down for the count.
The CSoft server crashed within a couple hours of going live with downes.ca and has now crashed three times in less than 24 hours (it is currently crashed). And I wasn't even harvesting or sending email!
I have removed all the scripts and replaced them with simply print commands saying that the script is not currently active. The server still crashed. There is no reason for this; I think that it simply is unable to handle the traffic.
It is as usual very difficult to get more than a terse two or three word reply from the CSoft administrators (I really don't understand their reluctance to communicate with me).
So right now, I am again waiting for a response from CSoft. I am also scouting around for a new web host - I am beginning to think that I need a colocation service, that is, a dedicated web server.
Any advice would be welcome...
