    Lightbulb The newer AspenandVolare.com

    I work 45 plus hours a week. I come home and make dinner, check some e-mails and then take a shower, watch some TV then go to sleep. On the weekends I have some free time but I also spend time with my wife.
    Recently running the website has been a big pain. I installed so many enhancements to the old site I was reluctant to upgrade the vbulletin software and taking a chance losing or breaking the links of those enhancements.
    People whom use other people's sites are nothing more than vampires and suck the blood of others. In this case it was hackers hacking the security issues of vbulletin 4.1.3. Each time they did this the hosting company would shut down the site and make me prove that I looked at and removed any suspicious code or files. After doing so they would scan the site again and turn it back on if it was to their liking.
    I finally broke down and decided to upgrade the software to vbulletin 4.2.3 the latest most stable platform. Shortly after the upgrade the hosting company shut the site down for the last time. This time they reported that the private messages coming from the site was spam. OMG
    Next came the decision as to whether I should get out of the website business or not. I decided to try one more time at another hosting company.
    I first went to hostgator, I did not transfer the domains I merely sign up for web hosting. Come to find out that their control panel was in the beta stage of development I decided to cancel and move on. I then went back to a hosting service whom once had parked some of my other domain names. Go Daddy to the rescue. I transferred my domains and then signed up for two years of hosting.
    Then began the task of copying all of my files to my home computer. I save the sql databases and downloaded them to my computer also. I learned how to use a program call filezilla to transfer the files
    I then began the long task up uploading all of the files and databases to the new server at the new hosting company. I tried and tried to get the old databases and software to work together. I asked the hosting service for help and they tried. I asked members on vbulletin.org for help and they tried to help.
    Thus came my next decision. That was to start from new. Keep the site cleaner and on all new software and virgin database. So here we are at a new beginning.
    I have kept all the old databases and picture and post. I am not going to get rid of that anytime soon. If anything I will use my other domain name of fbodymopars.com and try harder at restoring the old databases, pictures and posts.

    I'm just trying to edit my profile and avatar. Big job just doing that! Man what a bummer, like we had a house fire and lost all our family photos. I guess we did.
