Web-site brick wall. A Benedictine oblate blog

The Oblate Spring web site is offline because it is being moved to a new server and the web hosting company we use to host our sites had some minor, correctable glitches in doing their part of the moves.

My wife takes care of working with our hosting company and moving the sites. The move of Oblate Spring should have taken about 24 hours over the weekend. But the hosting company had some problems which delayed our republishing the Oblate Spring site.

All is well, but my dear wife has spent hours on the phone trying to get the problems identified and then fixed. My wife talked yesterday with a supervisor with the hosting company and thinks we should be back online by Wednesday night at the latest. If the Oblate Spring web site is not back by Wednesday night, you will know we have hit another brick wall — and we may be hitting our heads against one too!

  1. Glad to see you're still with us. Are the employees of your hosting company native speakers of English?

  2. Hi Joe, all were Americans, and the Oblate Spring web site is still not up. My poor wife has spent many hours helping them correct the things they said they had fixed but had not. It looks like it will take the hosting company over a week to do a task that can be done in less than 24 hours. But that is life on the Internet.

  3. Just came upon your website- I am an oblate residing in Florida that is associated with Walburg Monastery in Kentucky.
