A weird turn of events concerning the old DatechGuyblog.com

Posted: December 6, 2021 by datechguy in Uncategorized

Ok This is getting weird

If you’re reading this here you know I finally had enough with my provider and moved my site back to wordpress. I Purchased a couple of small plans set up this new primary blog at Datechguyblog.blog started sending out blast emails to DaPeople to say that’s where I’d be, and then cancelled my plan there.

I then got a form email that said plan would be stopped in about 48 hours.

That was a week ago.

I have absolutely no idea what’s going on but here is what I suspect.

I suspect that the successor to my old provider who bought the company from him set things up to run automatically and basically planed to tweak if necessary.

I think something happened to him, maybe COVID maybe something else but I think he’s out of the picture, either due to illness, death or something else and I don’t know when or if he or anyone else will be back.

And now the automated system will keep running. The customers whose stuff is still in play and working properly will keep paying and be deposited into his account and his own expenses will keep being autodetected from said account.

In theory that means that I can still post there. I’ve had no luck doing so for a full week but I decided to give it a shot when one of my Mag seven writers posted here and this morning a version of this post went up there without a hitch. However as I’ve cancelled I don’t want to be using the site as it might be considered doing so under false pretenses.

I don’t know how long this host will be up but I suggested reader bookmark our new primary site datechguyblog.blog That’s where all our new posts will be going.

That is actually the same site as our old backup blog which was datechguy.wordpress.com which redirects now to http://datechguyblog.blog

With that as our primary site I’ve had to set up a new backup, that is located at Datechguyblog.org

That will be our primary backup site although I’m thinking of using it as the primary site for Dynasty Baseball league stuff.

But anyways if you stop at the old datechguyblog.com head back over here. We already imported all the old post from here over there so there’s nothing there you should need

Eventually datechguyblog.com will redirect here once I figure out what’s going on but when it does is anyone’s guess.

    Most hosting companies have a serious lack of communication between billing and technical departments. Tech never took your site down or cutoff access because billing never told them you had quit paying. No big deal for them. Th limited amount of bandwith you consume is irrelevant to them.
