UPDATED WEDNESDAY JAN. 9 AT 10:12 AM EST -- SEE BELOW

As I write it is 2:20 AM eastern US time and we've been working to upgrade this web site for hours.  It is now a SECURE site, using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to make connections and keep data encrypted between your computer and my server.

We had a devil of a time with the SUBSCRIPTION SYSTEM and NONE of the user names are uploaded yet, so NO ONE can login.  I'll get to it in the morning.

The comment feature is offline  NOW OPERATIONAL  as of 8:09 AM EST.

 I have to go to bed before I fall asleep here at my desk(I'm awake as of 8:09 AM and back working on this site)

Bear with me, it will all be done in the morning, hopefully before lunchtime.

Hope you like the new style.  The bolder typeface.  The moving photo images. Scrolling stock ticker. and the ability to immediately share stories via social media.

In the LISTEN ONLINE menu button, you can now choose one of my servers or servers from the Radio stations.

The audio archives are now ALL in one place, but since it is locked down until I get the Subscriber data uploaded, that's off limits right now.

More details in the morning.

Hope you like the new layout.   It took a tremendous amount of work to create.

 

WED. JANUARY 9 AT 10:12 AM --

Last night, my techs transferred the entire user database from the old site to the new . . . which promptly BROKE the whole site.  I couldn't even get in to post stories or anything.

Turns out, the old site was not only un-encrypted (as we knew) but since the new site is using incredibly tight security to make certain users don't share their login info, the alteration to the database LOCKED the whole user database because the security protocols thought it had been hacked.   Shut down the whole system.  What a nightmare.

Anyway, I'm back in and able to make changes again.  It is a very tough thing to go through this and I am sorry beyond words for any inconvenience to you.  The site content REMAINS UNLOCKED because of this issue, so none of you are missing anything.

I will talk more about this on my radio show tonight at 9:00 PM.  Tune-in by clicking the LISTEN ONLINE tab in the top menu bar.

Thanks!

Hal

    Hi Hal, I've tried to re-subscribe as you've told us to do, but the system won't recognize my email address.....it says it's an email address already in use, and is asking for a new one. So I don't know if my re-subscription went thru or not. Also, I've already paid for this month, but I'm getting emails (at the same email address) saying my subscription will expire by the end of the day today.

    So hal, did you explain to your listeners why you got Lovelle Wheeler of Baltimore locked up for 9 months because you snitched on his ammo and gunpowder arsenal in his basement?

    Hal, since you are having severe issues with getting this package up and running, I would suggest that you revert back to the previous software package.


    In the meantime get yourself a development server, or access to one, and resolve all the issues you are having with this Joomla installation on that server.
