The Joys of Technology

• CATEGORIES: News

Well folks, sorry for that interruption. The host that manages the eWillys domain failed to renew the name. My attempts to manually and auto renew it this past week failed. It took support to finally get it to work this morning. Since then, I’ve been exchanging emails with the host to explain that their technology is flawed. While they sent emails that included their apologies, they have no good explanation as to why their system didn’t auto renew the domain name. So, there will be another interruption after the holidays when I move the domain name to another host.

CJ-5 Kelly Hardtop Montoursville, PA $600

• CATEGORIES: News

Sounds like it is in good shape.

“This Kelly top is off of a 1975 CJ5. These metal hardtops were available as dealer add-ons, and this one is in all original and working condition. All glass is there, and all the hand cranks work. The dome light lit when it was taken off. This is a 300 model, which is the top of the line except for the Bonanza. This hardtop would be easy to restore and put on that CJ5 you wanted to show.”

A Little Behind Schedule

• CATEGORIES: News

What a day yesterday! I woke up to learn that my deilers.com site (which also hosts the Alaska Or Rust site) had been hacked. If you viewed the site on a phone, you’d get a nice photo of an undressed young lady. As you can imagine, that’s a problem.

After some research, I learned that some from Turkey (probably that was spoofed IP) has uploaded zipped files, added some .htaccess files, and changed some the website files. While attempting to douse that fire (which I’ve fixed about 25% of the way), I was also packing for a short trip to Seattle. My father has surgery on his leg to improve its circulation.

Meanwhile, my mom is still on her walker from her knee surgery, due to newly pulled groin and other issues. To see the following each other, both pushing walkers, is a bit humbling!

So, I’m a little behind today. Sunday I *should* be back to normal.
