update on my pass the hat question??

Post by hotflash44 » Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:12 pm

this pops up once in awhile and prompted my offer to donate if needed. 503 - Unavailable We are experiencing tehnical difficulties Our site is getting too big and pulling too much resources on our shared server account. So our web host is throttling our account and shaking me down to upgrade to a different plan which is going to cost more money. Just like with a cell phone, we went over our data limit. I am trying to work things out with the web hosting company and have everything running smooth soon. If I do have to upgrade to a more expensive plan, I will need to pass the hat and take up a collection. I'll let you know. Until then like they said in the TV business: PLEASE STAND BY And for fooks sake stop hitting refresh, that compoinds the problem.

I just now had it pop up, seeing there is no administrator name I'm guessing scam. Quit and restarted firefox and it was gone.
past afflictions include limey motocars and bikes, R60/2 & a R65ls, and a Citroen.
Now a 2012 rusty GU and a 87 K75s with 200k miles both bought new
