Update on ARNie and ChezCrochet.com

I am alive, but my health is still preventing me from reopening my store and selling my books.  Each time I seem to conquer one problem, another pops up.  We are managing the blood disorder, but the reality is, my immune system is compromised and that severely restricts everything I do.

For the last few days (that I know of), ChezCrochet.com has been offline.  I have been researching this issue, and I'm still in the dark as to what is going on with this company.  I've been with them decade, and only one time in the past, did their servers go offline, and that was due to a horrible storm.

At present, I am still trying to determine what happened, and in the days to come, what I should do about it in the future.  Whether that is to try to transfer to another host, which will probably mean rebuilding the site, which will be an insurmountable task with as large at it was.


Please know, that I'm not dead, like the disappearance of the site might suggest.  I'm still living at home, and doing as well as I can.

I do spend time on Facebook, and you can find me there.  I'm still stitching, but just for peace of mind and to sell a few things at 4 living history events I risk going to.  My office is now my hermitage, and I leave the house very little.

My ChezCrochet at yahoo dot com email is still working, but all of the ChezCrochet.com email accounts are offline, and I don't know how to retrieve them, yet.

Sorry to hear you are having so many problems.

If you do decide to migrate your site to a different host, I've been using InMotion for well over a decade and have had no problems.

Hope things are resolved and you start to feel better soon.

Thank you for the kind words and the recommendation for your web site host. They look promising!
I had been with my previous host, like you, over a decade, and this week they just disappeared! None of my attempts to contact them have been successful.
Thanks again, ARNie
