To comprehend the explanation,  we probably need to be well versed in the Theory of "Operativity."   :D :D

Thanks for the mention. Always happy to jump in when needed.
@Maxx2, in order to have at least something I used that old domain of mine to serve as temporary escape.
Luckily shortly after the redirect got online the problem was fixed.

No it is not a dog. Its really how I look.  ;)

Not to diminish Shadow's contribution, but this time the RWD black-out of 3+ days was caused AGAIN by the owner not paying the hosting rental on time :(.

True, however it appears that Shadow is the only one that can contact Dan and get the bills paid.  The hosting site and domain registrar will not allow anyone but the owner to make the payments.  I tried to pay it last year as a gift and was told that only payment from the owner will be accepted.  At least we have Shadow to save the day.  :)   It also appears that Shadow may be the only one that has the administrator login credentials to manage the site.

Thanks Sandro,
 Appreciate the info, Given my isp's past reputation for sometimes blocking this site (and some others) I assumed they were again guilty.

Thanks, Shadow !

At least RWD was there for me during my layover at  Istanbul ...

You're a star ..

Isn't it about time Dan allowed someone else to have permission to act on his behalf ?

It seems somebody reminded the owner to pay.  That reminder would more likely come from someone who 1) follows RWD daily as a moderator and 2) understands what's happening behind the scenes.  Theses two criteria suggest our gratitude should be directed to Sandro.   

Thanks   Sandro!!!   :applause:

Or maybe the owner took care of it himself.  Or maybe some savior paid GoDaddy.com.   What this and other info suggest is RWD is on a tenuous lifeline.   Is there a Plan B?

Shadow did, answering my request to do so since I am no longer on speaking/writing terms with Dan, whom I have long considered bloody rude and discourteous for not deigning to answer my previous communications for several years :(.

OK, so how did Shadow pay the fee, since others have said no one other than Dan could pay the fee ??

And what is the plan for this website when and if Dan decides to deactivate it ?

I remember way back when the previous owner (Patrick) of prior site asked who wanted to take it over.

He then chose Dan from among those who showed an interest.
