If you can read this….

I transferred my cthreepo.com domain and 20 others to 1and1 hosting today. After the problems with HostMerit, I thought it best. I liked the idea that it was local and I liked the idea that it was a hacker entrepreneur running the site, and I liked that it was cheap. But, Hostmerit was not stable enough to stick with. They lost 4 months of data and then were angry that I asked them to find it. They pointed me to the old site where they said there was no data and I was able to copy it all down to my PC.

In the middle of this, they sent me a bill for the next year’s service. Well, not today. I will stick with the more expensive, klutzy web hosting service. 1and1.com is a German company with a NY data center. I will use it for a while and hope for the best.

I transferred all the little accounts and the blog. On Wednesday I will transfer freenameastar.com. The only one left is StellaMaeve.com, the one for Jimmy’s actress daughter and I have to wait on Jim to update the DNS as he owns the domain.

    Odd you should mention this. My web guy who is hosting my Geek log site is also in Germany. I’m paying 50 Euros/year for my domain name ejim shannon.com and that includes hosting my site. My server is out of Walnut California. They seem to be stable even though I get the usual time outs.

    Your guy in Germany wouldn’t be named Markus would it?

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
