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
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
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).
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?
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,
told us a lot of things in between being
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
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
