Yeah, I really don't know what I'm doing when I've been up since 3 in the morning. It's not 9:30.  :( Plus I was just testing around with some things. I promise I'll stop. This should work.

http://atheistthinktank.org/forum/index.php

Again, I'm just offering up space in case this place craps out. Get together. Collaborate on ideas on what to do next. Etc.

Well, it says the "username does not exist", and I was supposed to get an email which I didn't.

Try again? (me not you)

You are venturing into territory that even I would not dare ... and believe me I am a pretty darn good tinkerer. I think I have gotten too old to sit and tinker constantly.

I had such a perverted thought with that last line. ;)

Automatic payment made, grace period in force, or shut-off later in the day?

Well it's already Jan 14th, and the UTC time is 13:18z.

Even if it does expire, he'll renew it after he gets a bunch of complaint emails.

I pre-emptively sent him a friendly note letting him know people are a little freaked out.  I thanked him for the site in the event he chose to not renew.

I didn't notice the time stamp before. I just assumed it was like insurance and would go dead 12:01am EST.

I think 5:01z is 12:01am est.  So maybe there's a grace period.  I dunno.  Maybe he put it on the same host as how stuff works?

Expiry now showing as 2015.

Praise God.  Or Marshall.  One or t'other.
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.

I wanted to be be Marshall, but in the pre-life, we flipped a coin and he won.

But I won ParkingPlaces, which is a close second. Right?

I think 5:01z is 12:01am est.  So maybe there's a grace period.  I dunno.  Maybe he put it on the same host as how stuff works?

In 2007 Discovery Communications purchased HowStuffWorks.com. However, Mr Brain does have his personal website hosted by the same web hosting company as this site:



So, maybe he keeps the credit card updated for his own site and this one gets updated by default.

Even though the domain renewal appears to be automatic, we still have the problem of the database on this site going down at any moment. I'm amazed that we haven't had a huge hiccup for a long time.
