The site will be in limbo for a few days, while I change from WordPress to Joomla.
I foolishly assumed that the surprising numbers of subscribers I got were being subscribed as they showed up as users. Then someone emailed me that they didn’t get a confirmation email, although I received a registration notice email. Apparently getting WordPress to send an some emails is a chronic problem proven by googling “wordpress won’t send email” and getting 2,900,000 results, covering years of complaints. I spent 2 days trying the suggested remedies and came to the frequent suggestion that changing my hosting service was the solution, but was one I didn’t want to use. I had used joomla, drupal, and mambo over the years with this hosting service and never had an email problem–essentially no problems at all. I am hastily converting an old joomla site, as Joomla has gone through several iterations since I used it and learning the latest would take too long.
My apologies for the interruption. Check back in a few days. The address will be the same. To speed things up, I will begin posting new posts and add all the previous posts after the site is up. I will add RSS subscription service for those who prefer it, and there will be no need to register for that service.
