Moderator: The Merrimack Volunteer Moderators problems?

Postby RBarnes » Sat Nov 18, 2006 11:11 am

This morning was really odd. I tried to pull up this site and instead some generic search site came up with flowers and links to Merrimack related stuff.

Has anyone else had that problem?

Site registration had expired.

Nat took care of it this morning.

It may take a while for nameservers that were updated to get back to where they belong.

Yep, as Brian pointed out I let the domain registration lapse. I had forgotten that it's been another year (Four years in all!) since this began. The renewal email must have been lost in my spam filter. Luckily the registrar I use has a grace period (but they put up an ad farm to generate revenue) so I didn't lose the domain name.

Another $8.88 goes out of pocket, bring my total expenses for five years of running this forum (since you pay ahead) to $44.40. Quite the bargain. For less than the cost of taking my family to the movies once I've gotten years worth of local information and entertainment. Of course a big thank you has to go to Walter Billings and the rest of the team at, they stepped forward years ago and donated the hosting space for the forum, saving me a significant amount of money.
