Having failed to find a consultant/assistant to outsource my IT troubles to, I’m now doing it myself, with all the associated risks. So far, after a few hours of manipulations, the sites and forums are still up, very much to my own surprise. BUT PLEASE REPORT IF ANYTHING APPEARS WRONG.
Advice from webmastering authorities will restore my faith in humanity. So far I was not able to find a knowledgeable consultant who would respond quick and to the point.
