I.M.Hosted Joins Comcast in Devil's Dominion

Goddamnit!!!

I had to switch Luminarium out of its old housing into a new home in the past month, and after research, the said location was ImHosted.com. More like I M TOASTED.com

Remember my rants about Comcast? Well, this is worse. The past couple of days, I've had a hell of a lot of trouble accessing my FTP server, and now when anyone types in "http://www.luminarium.org/" or anything within, the BASTARDS show a page saying

There is no website configured at this address.

Taking into account, that Luminarium has anywhere from 100,000 to 300,000 individuals visit it monthly, that's a hell of a lot of people being disappointed right now. Not to mention, that finally today I finished the Renaissance Drama section, and had done a fair bit of e-marketing, adding it to search engines and directories, etc. Now all of those folks are thinking "what the f%$#!" And that is exactly what I'm thinking.

To add insult to injury, these &%#%$%$s who promised 24/7 tech support, say they will only talk to me online... problem is, since my site doesn't exist, I can't open a trouble ticket or get f&$#ing help.

For the first time in 10 years, Luminarium is down. That's why there's all these broken links here, too - no hosting.

Would you like to know how I really feel? :P

Please excuse my language. I'm just so LIVID right now, I can't stand it.

Okay, moving poor ill-treated Luminarium again. GRRRR...

If you can get the shitheads to refund your money I think I can generate you an account at Dreamhost at a discounted rate. The times I've need tech support they've been amazingly fast.

When I was having trouble I had to create a mirror of Hyperliterature on a subdomain until I could get it back up and running. Don't know if that helps or not, but feel free to email with more specifics and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks, Mark! Tentatively, they're up. I have opened a new account with a different hosting service now, and these buggers should return me my money... we'll see. :)
