A Little More Downtime (sigh)

Things MIGHT be messed up here at the Stanbrough online camp for a few more days.

I learned last night from the tech that the “account creation process needs to have nothing in place before restoring the backup.”

I think that means this site (harveystanbroughwrites.com) will have to be deleted, then re-established as an add-on site to HarveyStanbrough.com once the latter is fully restored at the new host.

I just wanted to give you a little warning.

Also, during this time I’m going to switch over from MailChimp to MailerLite. That shouldn’t affect any of you at all, fingers crossed. Thanks for hanging in there. I’m sure everything will be back to normal soon.

Talk with you again later.

Of Interest

See “What Animals Play Dead and Why?” at https://www.suecoletta.com/play-dead/.

See “Steve Martin and Martin Short” at https://deanwesleysmith.com/steve-martin-and-martin-short/. He says they “pull no punches” and you should see the show “unless you are politically too sensitive to go into the real world.” He doesnt specify whether that’s the real world of main-street America or the real world of California and New York. So I guess they must pull some punches or politics wouldn’t enter into it. Which of course it shouldn’t.
