A Host of Errors

My web host (pair.com) is having problems with email so if
you sent me something in the past 24 hours I won’t be able to
respond until they get around to figuring out what is wrong. If
there is an emergency need to get a hold of me, feel free to
try dkseto at hotmail dotted commercial.

In addition, the specific server my site is on has gone down
a couple of times in the past weeks due to “heavy load.” So if
you can’t get to my site, you’ll know why. Sort of. And for
this I pay over $300 USD a year. Sigh.

If I had my own static IP address and a provider that would
allow me to host my own site I would do so. Of course, I would
carefully re-read everything fellow Daynoter Brian
has on his site and then contact Daynoter Phil Hough since he also
hosts his own site…


Can’t Get There From Here

I’ve been using either Mozilla email or Thunderbird
for some time now but have found an area they are lacking.
Namely, exporting. If, for example, I want to export all of my
email so I can store it while reformatting my hard drive I’m
left up the creek without the proverbial paddle. Neither
Mozilla email client can export email. So what are you supposed
to do? I don’t know. Copy the folders?

Drop me a line if you know of a way of exporting then
importing back in. By they way, after using both for awhile, I
think Thunderbird runs better. YMMV. FWIW.
