How many of you logged onto GOY this morning and got a web page by " Go Daddy " saying that GOY was waiting for renewal or deletion, boy did I panick so I phoned Bloomer who was just going out, I emailed Cinders and she had the same thing on her computer, I really thought I was going to lose you lovely lot, panick over. I tried again at one and low and behold it came on,

Any ideas what it was all about,?

I could not believe it Pam, thought maybe the boys had had enough and was giving someone else the opportunity to take it over or just delete it, well I am glad you got to see it also,

29 Nov, 2012

 

O..I have not seen it. Glad we are still here...:))))

29 Nov, 2012

 

I did too and thought that I had lost you all
:( was very scared for a while!

29 Nov, 2012

 

Do you think it was a scam of some sort?

29 Nov, 2012

 

GM I did panic thinking the same as you, if it was a scam it was a pretty weird one Pam.

29 Nov, 2012

 

Very!

Hi Val..:o) Just nicely got home..and I was so relieved to see it back on..thanks for your phone call,and I've just read your email ..ta :o)..and thanks for yours too,Pam and Terra..hope we get to find out what happened..I was thinking about it all the time we were out ..I had only been on around 11 ish,but it has been very quiet,so logged out..so it seemed unbelievable..I can do without this kind of excitement!! .....
Just taken a look at the link Terra..and it is clearer now !
thanks for that :o)

29 Nov, 2012

 

good grief Terra, so it looks like a hacker then, that is unbelievable, Bloomer I think a few of us was relieved also,

29 Nov, 2012

 

... maybe GoY has been grabbed ..

it certainly looked like it this morning terra, it was Go Daddy and at the top of the page in red it said this site was waiting for renewal or deletion.

29 Nov, 2012

 

I know how you all feel, I have been without GoY contact for the last 2 weeks. Wonderful to log on again and see you all there, especially the overseas members.
I can hear Beryl saying "Whats the matter with them all Hywel ?" Ha ha.
Have to wait another 3 days until the new BT connection settles down, so still cant download emails in the pipeline until next Tuesday. Have a very good local Technician so am relying on him to restore my communication system. He did take my computer home for a thorough overhaul.
So its the ISP.

29 Nov, 2012

 

It said go daddy and I went off quick! Thought about buying the domain name meself lol! Glad we are all back on!!

29 Nov, 2012

 

it's not nice being without GOy Diane, made me feel really isolated this morning, if I don't comment I always have a peek at what is going on, hope your computer is up and running really soon for you.
Lulu, I had the same thought as you this morning about buying the domain but thought it might cost to much.

29 Nov, 2012

 

I have only just turned on so didn`t see it, I cannot even contemplate going without my Goy fix, I know its been quieter recently but that has helped me catch up on missed blogs, you never know I might even get through some of the pics, lol....
Good to see you back Diane...

29 Nov, 2012

 

It was really worrying Lincs, as if Goy had gone or been taken over......

29 Nov, 2012

 

Not sure if the site can be 'taken over'!!! But the domain name could have. Lol, we could have ransomed the boys!

29 Nov, 2012

 

didn't get this - sounds really strange

29 Nov, 2012

 

I have been dipping in and out all day, no problems here.

29 Nov, 2012

 

Really Bulba, I guess it was half elevenish, when I came in from shopping at the market......

29 Nov, 2012

 

I saw it too - frightened me to death! So relieved to see it back again this afternoon.

29 Nov, 2012

 

I'm finding the site ever so slow..is anyone else?

29 Nov, 2012

 

I was just about to say the same thing Lulu33, it was working fine until about 9 pmish..it is so slow, I am going to shut down, hopefully it will move a bit faster tomorrow.

29 Nov, 2012

 

Thanks for that I thought it was just mine, its been like it for hours now....

29 Nov, 2012

 

It's much better today!

30 Nov, 2012

 

thanks for all your comments, I was really worried yesterday morning when that is what I kept getting on screen, goy was so slow last night I just switched off.

30 Nov, 2012

 

Hope we all dont lose contact with one another!! :(

30 Nov, 2012

 

sent you PM

30 Nov, 2012

 

I did, and it surprised me considerably. All my GoY chums, gone! I tried several GoY links, all led to same result.

Eventually I went into the sister site, the birdwatching one, and posted a quetion there; asked if anyone there knew what was happening here.

Someone suggested that I try "contact us" from that site, but by the time I read it GoY was back up again. Whew

welcome back, GoY!

I thought about it too, Lulu, but what would I have been able to do with it? - all our files, blogs, pics and chums would be elsewhere.

is there a GoY on YouTube?? maybe we could have one, give us a back door in case the front door gets blocked again!

or Twitter or Facebook, I suppose, but so many don't use one or both of them.

30 Nov, 2012

 

Yes, my computer is fine now Lincs lass. What hit me was having to send messages by post, as my phone was cut off when they knew I was moving back to BT, then the BT engineers didnt turn up to put the new cable in. No computer and no phone for 2 weeks.
My new Wormery turned up, the instructions occupied my mind all that time. Then I found a Compost book with different instructions for Wormeries - I have now learned to leave it alone. Its in my kitchen Temp.18 deg.C. against the wall.
The worms were £18. I have now learned a gardening friend laid a large piece of cardboard on his lawn overnight and in the morning he had enough Red Worms to stock his Compost Bin - free of charge.
We live and learn.

Oh dear,Diane..sorry to hear you have been without your Computer and phone..I've only been without my laptop for two days,and it was too long! Those red worms just appear as if by magic,in a compost bin,and usually either die off or reappear in the spring.My bin is always full of them..good little workers :o)

Now I like the idea of a GoY facebook. It's easier to share stuff and you can talk privately or publicly in real time....I wonder...........not that I would't come on here as well!

1 Dec, 2012

 

I did fo facebook, Lulu, but I had to give up, the display was too much of a strain for me; too small, hard to read - lol I spent most of my time in there playing a game, since none of my family or friends ever answered my posts!

But this recent scare has shown how vulnerable we are; all linked by only one thread - maybe we need a backup, a just-in-case.

Grins, now we need a poll to find out what most people would use - or be able to use

what options are there?
yahoo or similar group
twitter
facebook
err....

lol or we could all move to the sister Birdwatching site! nah, don't think we'd like them moving in with us ...

1 Dec, 2012

 

Glad I missed all the panic, I'm just trying to catch up again:-)

1 Dec, 2012

 

I enlarge my Facebook by using ctrl + !!

2 Dec, 2012

 

I think I had in on max, but not only text size, glary bacground colour. If GoYers decide to use FB as backup, I'll give it a go, but lol I'm not going to votre for it msyelf!

2 Dec, 2012

 

Nor me Fran..I only go on to have a nosey,and see what friends and Family are doing ! :o)

2 Dec, 2012

 

I only use it to keep in touch with my family as well, I`m afraid it winds me up....

2 Dec, 2012

 

lol then we'll all have to sacrifice chickens to the "gods of GoY" that they protect us!

3 Dec, 2012

 

Is it just me but at 7.15am Goy is really slow, other sites are almost instant, goy is painfully slow for me

3 Dec, 2012

 

Morning Pam..yes it was slow..it took ages to get going ,but seems to have improved a bit now..

3 Dec, 2012

 

Same here Bloomer, must have needed time to warm up this morning......its lovely here at the minute 7c and sunny

3 Dec, 2012

 

Mainly fine here,but a really cold wind..I've just braved going outside to plant a dozen Polyanthus,I bought on Saturday..it didn't take long.! :o)

3 Dec, 2012

 

Very brave.....I just went to get sticks to light the fire, by then the wind had got up here........
