    Today, I have been on the phone with support, three times.
    I asked if he could set everything back to default and then start from there.
    He asked why?
    I said, well, for 1 reason, the user name that is displayed is most of my password.
    So we started over and got that straightened out.
    Went through setup again and it was different this time. hummm?
    Work a bit on the e-mail issue but that was not going well because the web host was still not right.

    After resetting everything, I started trying to get to the web site.
    I can but I had no idea where it was on thenet.
    The ftp said it was there but I could not see it and the error said the server didn't see it.

    Then me being me, I started looking and trying different things.
    45 minutes of pounding keys, I see my web site index page.
    Stop, what did I do?
    I changed the url.
    Everyone knows w w w . n a m e . c o m (space so the link is not active.
    Well, I had removed the w w w from the url.
    There's my page.
    I added 2 more simple pages and I could see them if I deleted the w w w.
    Call support again.
    Got through in 6 minutes. wow.
    He talked me through editing the way the serve looks at url.
    Had me add to settings.

    Turns out the host setting had not been set to recognize w w w and only urls without.

    Ask if this could be the problem with not receiving e-mail?
    Yep, the same missing stuff.

    Basically, everything was linking in a circle and not stopping.

    I have to wait up to 48 hours for the new server request to take effect.
    E-mail started working with in 5 minutes.
    A boat load of test are coming through. (8 days worth)
    Got the last pipe fix in yesterday and letting it cure for a couple of days.
    No sense testing today when the hardware store is close.
    I did measure for the new plywood floor patch section.
    2'x4'x3/4" and some 2x4s and 2x4 to make frames.

    Good thing I had no where to be this past week.
    I am having so much fun...NOT!

    Today, Sunday has been a very busy day, so far!
    For 9 days my web sites have been down. Actually completely deleted from server.
    I have spent lot of time with support and today, I think things are going my way.
    I have access to my web hosting server.
    I am in the process of uploading years of pages and data.

    What I just saw makes me happy.
    The images I posted on this forum disappeared and now I see some are coming back.
    I am currently uploading my Akula II files.
    Took a look at the build thread and I see images starting to reappear.

    I hope the images reappear on the other threads as I upload more files to my server.
    Fingers crossed.

    It appears I have recovered.
    It seems this happens to me about every 5 to 6 years.
    I have learned to keep an organized fold and file that is identical to what I upload to the net.
    I have secondary folders and files where I work on the images and page before they are ready to upload.
    So, basically I have a mirror image of my net stuff.
    I can highlight a folder and upload the folder and all it's associated files.
    I did this because it is one thing to rebuild on the same host but a completely different thing to move to another host.

    I have my net stuff so I only have to redirect my domain names and all the links remain the same.
    Sundays recovery require the uploading of over 250 pages and over 3500 images.
    Most of the time was chasing links to make sure they went where they were suppose to.

    I did get rid of a lot of orphan pages and images.
    I have no idea where they were linked in from.
    That reminds me...
    Anyone who finds a link that does not go where it should or images that do not display, let me know exactly where you found this happening.
    I will go in and see if I can get it back up.

    Thanks for your work Ralph. I enjoy this site.
    It is one of just a few small islands in the ocean of model submarining with unique insights into the hobby.
