32 Days down!?!

I would like to welcome you back after a 32 day downtime episode. I suppose I should first explain what happened to cause such issues as well as inform you the steps I have taken to ensure it does not happen again.

First the downtime… I applied for a Paypal debit card, this Paypal account in question is my account and I have had this account for 9 years I mind you. For them to suspend or “limit” my account telling me that I needed to provide them 3 pieces of information to remove this limitation 1. Proof of SSN 2. Proof of residency and 3. Photo ID, like they did not know who I was the first 9 years… During the limitation (suspension) from Paypal hosting became due which is automatically paid via Paypal & since my account was limited the hosting did not get paid even though the funds for it were in there. After appropriate documents were sent to Paypal and awaiting for full account access to be restored the hosting company placed my hosting service in a cancelled status. So the servers were no longer there and within 30 days the backup would also be destroyed. I personally hold Paypal responsible and I am in the process of getting a new provider.

What has been done to rectify the situation? $150 restoration fee as well as a year of hosting paid up front. I would like to thank all of those that donated and all those that have donated in the past to help bring the sites back to full functionality. At current time I do not have anything to offer on the site, but I encourage those that have donated to please visit our new home for donators. My way of saying thanks to all of you.
