Attention all PCP members: Well, it looks like
we're in a pickle. Yoiur officers and I purchased
a hosting package from ERYXMA networks in January
of this year, we paid for a year in advance.
Sometime a few months ago, Jeremy Clark and I
received a notice in our inboxes that ERYXMA was
purchased by a company called Glexicon
communications. Glexicon worked ok for a couple
of months, then the site went down. Trouble
tickets we opened went unanswered, as did emails.
Their website is simply a Glexicon logo and no
way to navigate in any further. In short, it
appears as if Glexicon has taken our money
(donated by the officers for the hosting costs)
and ran. If you do any sort of search on Glexicon
Communications you'll find folks all over North
America who are faced with the same situation we
are. At least it was a "club" website and not
something that was generating a salary for us
like some of these poor folks that got shafted by
We were in the process of building a completely
new website/evines from the ground up. A lot of
work has been put into this project only to see
it fail. Well, set back. If I have to purchase a
new hosting package myself I will, but God only
knows how long the migration to a new hosting
company will take, or whether we'll be able to
debut the site anytime soon. Members, I ask you
to have patience with us. To clarify: Now that
Phish is over, WE ARE NOT FINISHED. In fact, now
we can concentrate on classic sources for classic
shows instead of always worrying about the next
tour. I wanted to make that clear in case anyone
thought we just "packed it in" cause Phish was
done, that is simply not the case.
I deleted the old PCP mailing list at yahoogroups
because I wanted to force everyone onto the new
mail server. I waited for two months while
monitoring list performance before I decided to
pull the plug. Nothing was done rashly or without
good reason in this mess, I want to make that
clear. Your officers and I have never stopped
striving for a better PCP, and we will continue
to do so.
In the interim, you may go back to
firstname.lastname@example.org, as I have re-created this
list to help us during this time. Please bear
with us. We swear, one day, it'll be worth it.
