You might never see this (you will, because I am backing it up and posting it on Facebook).
Long story short, I asked (and paid for) [company] to renew the domain for the blog, and my email, and my business, and my life: something they have managed to do for the past 8 years or more with no huge palava.
It turns out that they haven’t done it this year.
And so my domain is a few days from permanent deletion.
I’m hugely unhappy, but let’s cross that bridge once this is sorted. In the meantime, the blog could disappear at any mome
nt. Just kidding.
