The Final Countdown?

Postby tonydav » Thu Nov 27, 2008 9:51 pm

Here's a copy of an email I've just sent to members:-

Hi all,

Bad news, I'm afraid.

Here's an email I've just received from Lycos (who host the CGSOB website):-

"Customer information
Dear Anthony Davenport,
As you might have heard in the media, the management and the board of directors of LYCOS Europe N.V. have decided to liquidate valuable businesses and cease unprofitable activities. Unfortunately the webhosting business is one of these.

This means for you, that we will continue providing our webhosting services for only a limited period. A solution is sought, so that online-presences of our customers can be transferred to another provider without causing adverse effects or additional costs.

We will inform you about any upcoming changes in sufficient time. Though details are not yet clarified, we expect the webhosting platform to be operating during the first quarter of 2009.

As soon as we have further details about the planned measure, you will immediately be informed. We expect this to happen in a few days.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. We strive to enable a smooth transfer of your presence. We ask for your understanding that we cannot provide you with further information at this point of time. We also ask for your understanding that you might experience delays in response times from our support team in the next days as we expect an increasing volume of requests.

Please refrain from contacting our support team with request in this matter as no additional information can be provided by this channel at the moment.

We will contact you as soon as we have any further information.

Thank you for your patience and your understanding.

With best regards

Your LYCOS Webhosting Team"

I'll wait to see what their proposals are, before deciding a plan of attack (which may consist of waving a white flag).

I'll be in touch with what (if anything is to be done) as soon as I find out.
