Greatest Misses: Is the Internet Just a Dark and Shitty Place? or What in the name of Stromile Swift is Going On with your mag? or Forget Moves Servers and why you should not ever ever do that or Fuck, Fuck, Fuck, Fuck, Fuck, Fuck, Fuck or Never trust anyone related to Miguel
UPDATE: It's all fixed. Raphael. Wherever you are. You are, as Leonard Cohen would say, the man. Everybody else, I wouldn't bother reading any further or this page. Or farther on this page either, for that matter. We will be back to regularly scheduled programming soon. We might even have more of that programming to come. Who can say? - Ed.

Well. Now. Get this. 

Two weeks after celebrating its 20 year anniversary, Forget was forced to change servers.  We had a sweet, sweet deal hiding on a server belonging to a company that used to belong to Miguel's cousin (or something). That company was sold years ago and the new owners never noticed we were still there. Until recently. So we were like, 15 years of free hosting is enough. NBD, right?  Move to Pay servers; eat the yard a year it will cost; and onward.

Nope. We are lost in the land of a non-DNS promulgation hell-scape. They tell us the domain forgetmagazine.com cannot be viewed in parts of Canada (sort of an issue for a Canadian magazine, like they said it so cool too right, like it was nothing, like you, hey you, you can't have the colour orange anymore, or some shit). Actually, they told us a lot of things before then; but we've landed here (which is nowhere) for the moment. There's an "open ticket" with the engineers, so that ought to take care of everything.

Stuck between incompetence, and indifference, we have spoken to at least a dozen "support" experts  over these past days, and l want to tell you, if we had not met our boy Raphael, all hope would be lost. But, still, we hope. From Raphael we remember to hope. So, Forget was down for a week; first time ever. And is only barely back up. Apparently some people can see this and some can't. Who the fuck knows?

Know this: though the domain name Forgetmagazine.com and all of the hundreds of pieces that live there, still don't work at all, thankfully, this does: http://0463545.rcomhost.com/ so you can actually see and access the archive, you just have to do it through this link: http://0463545.rcomhost.com/archive.htm. Sub optimal, but shit man, it's on the Internet, they said. Yes, they told us a lot of things in between being on hold.

Writers can link to their work through the aforementioned SEO dream URL version of their pieces, while (if) this gets sorted. So, short of renaming it 0463545.rcomhost Magazine, we just bought Forgetmagazine.net & the Forgetmagazine.org today (they both currently point to this mess. It took 3 minutes to promulgate those addresses, so go figure).

All this while we wait for Raphael to save us. Also, if the Internet people can't figure this shit out soon, I'll move the whole thing over to one of those two addresses. Gonna be bitch to do it, but Oliver Wilde said "where there is sorrow there is higher ground" and that dude knew his shit.

Nothing is lost. Nothing is gone. Even though none of the links work now they way they always have, they soon will again.  We will keep on trying until we reach the higher ground. Or you know, the Internet gets its shit all figured out.

Fuck.
