As some of you may be aware, starting late Saturday, Jan. 11th, 2014 through early morning Monday, Jan. 13, 2014- qisoftware.com was unavailable. My web host's servers experienced a network DDoS attack.
To notify what was going on, I posted to the official blog on hosting-q.com and also my Twitter account. Also last week, because of a frayed power cord I was without the use of my netbook, where I maintain this [Thingamablog] blog which meant I could not post to this blog [did not want to waste the battery until I got a new cord].
The new Twitter page.
Before Saturday, I had done little or no research on how to customize Twitter so I was a bit surprised at how easy it was.
Also in this period, I have been searching for Thingamablog users and inviting them to join the Facebook Group. Recently, I was so impressed with how the RX7 Facebook Group responded to my queries about issues with my car, that I thought a group that responded likewise to Thingamablog blogger issues- would be great.
I started the group in 2011 and had about 11 members before Facebook changed the way groups worked. For some reason, I lost all of the members at that time but still had the group. So in this downtime period I thought I would try to get the group going again, in that the official forums for Thingamablog have since closed.
Last night, UPS delivered my new power cord so I am back in business insofar as posting to this blog. I have a number of projects on tap, so will be busy for awhile.
