About Vera:

Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!


We should be fully online and functional today.  My original message (and last month’s worth of data) did not restore.

In case you haven’t heard an ex-server employee of Reality Check Network went nuts early Saturday morning and CRASHED THE ENTIRE COMPANY. He wiped clean 1000s of servers. I was one of many companies who were affected by his madness. The FBI is now investigating and he will most likely see jail time. Now we are left to pick up the pieces.

It’s been a nightmare, so thanks for being patient and sticking with me.  I appreciate it very much.

LAB is live and stable. We just have to get the content fully current again.

Going forward, we’ll be on a brand new server with a new support company, hopefully never having to deal with this again.

Thanks again.

  1. I’m glad you’re back up. My site is one of those that was hosted with Reality Check and I’m not optimistic about getting back online anytime soon, if it all. Nearly three years of work and thousands of posts could be lost. Suffice it to say, I’m thinking my attorney is going to be busy.

    Glad you survived.

  2. I have been wondering what has been happening to your site.. Hope it all goes back up smoothly Vera no doubt you are ripping your hair out and stressed to the max! Just remember to breath 🙂 xx

  3. Back online and looking good, wonderful. I need my daily fix 🙂
