This morning I got a scare. I tried to open lumberjocks and my bookmark opened a Godaddy page. Obviously its working for me now. I felt sick. :|

whew- that was a frightening experience! L/J worked at 3:30 AM- but then it wouldn’t work at 8 AM I was really really sad…. Got me thinking that I hope Martin has a plan of succession in place to provide for this Lumberjock family. :)

It happened to me too and I was a little worried. I’ve gotten so used to having a habit like this that I started thinking about what in the world am I going to put in it’s place.

Martin, I agree about their confusing email renewals, it’s like the woodworking magazines…

I have a number of domains with them, and my inbox always has a deal, renewal, approval or some kind of request.

Didn’t check in until now, so didn’t know there was a problem…
