Hi Perry and all!
Yes . . . there have been some serious problems with the server, with the primary
server to be precise, the one in the UK! This happened one day after the "power
supply blues," which meant that I had to point the DNS server to the server in
Amsterdam (using its IP-address), because we have based the DNS server in the
States and runs fine since the year 2000.
The email service, on the other hand, runs via the UK Server, but we automatically
control all the email traffic via the DNS server in the States. So I had to point firstname.lastname@example.org to my private email address because I didn't want to
loose emailfrom the fans because I feel responsible when something is wrong.
Don't get me wrong: I love to run this mailing list and connect you all with the
messages you sent over to the list and the problem only took one day. In the
evening I received a message back from the people in the UK saying that everything
is fine by now and offering theirs apologizes.
You understand that I had to configure the DNS server to its original
settings, that being pointed the IP address to the server in the UK. I also had
to point the email address of the list back to the original email address.
Everything is fine by now, but yes: there have been some delays and I
apologize for this to all of you and I give the people in the
UK (http://www.amenworld.com) a second change concerning the
Online Magazine and the mailing list, because I think that everybody deserves
a second change.
Speaking about the UK:
The domain, heahternova.co.uk, as you probably know, is running as a
mirror site for heathernova.us, but I would like to offer you the possibility
to run the UK site for yourself.
So if someone would like to have the http://www.heahternova.co.uk site and is willing
to do something extra for Heather's fans in the UK (it is after all a UK domain) than you
are the one that I am looking for to run the site. I will give you your own private (and secure) access to the server. You will have 100 MB for the site and of course all
You don't have to pay for the site either and you are free to use all the resources
from the online magazine (including the HN video clips). It is no problem if you don't
live in the UK but: fans from the UK who would like to run the site are of course in advantage.
