Sand Pilarski has written a brilliant article about what happened to The Piker Press. I wanted to reiterate her thanks to Josh Brown for rescuing The Press from the black hole of cyberspace. THANK YOU JOSH!!!!!
MARCH 9, 2007 –
The problem has been solved, and readers are invited to return to the pages of the Press.
March 7, 2007 UPDATE: Infinology, the “host” of the Piker Press site is just horrible. Not only have they not responded to multiple emails asking why our site is down, but they don’t answer their phones either. They just take the money, and do nothing to sort out the problems. I can’t say this enough: DO NOT USE INFINOLOGY! That said, the Pikers have found another host and are working like demons to transfer the gazillion files. Thank goodness we have some wonderful tech people who don’t get fazed by error messages. With some luck, the Piker Press should be back up no later than March 12th. Thanks for your patience.
**UPDATE: The lizard man and his entourage are working round the clock to restore the Press to its readership. The forums are still open (follow the link) AND submissions are still welcome.
The Piker Press site has been down for a week now. Attempts to resolve the problem have so far been unsuccessful…BUT please don’t give up on the Pikers! We will keep working on the problem until it is resolved; and I’ll let you know here on my blog when you can once again enjoy reading the work of some very talented writers!
