I would SUE my webhost– see her blog (you have to go the “regular” way as her feeds are down.  Best wishes to getting back up soon!

The Blog is Down

It will be back up again soon, due to the fantastical cleverness of Ken, who not only explained the problem to me in a way I can understand but has kept me from smashing things or explaining my frustration to the webhost people in unladylike and counterproductive terms. Here – in terms I understand – is the problem.

Apparently, when we bought a very big closet from the webhost (our webspace with 1000MB of space), the builders may have neglected to mention that we are only allowed to hang 12 blue shirts in the closet (We can only have 100MB of mysql database storage). Unfortunately, all of our shirts are blue (Movable Type only uses mysql database storage for its whole operation) and although we are allowed to hang as many other kinds of things up as we want… pants, jackets, silk blouses and ties, really, we got this closet to hold our extensive blue shirt collection (This blog).

When the builders (the Webhosts) realized that we were trying to hang up the 13th blue shirt (another blog entry) they decided to put a one way door on the closet (Permission denied). We can take anything we want to OUT of the closet (deleting) but we can't put anything new in (Posting). They want us to either take some of our old shirts out (archives) or buy a really, really, really huge closet the size of your house (Dedicated server).
