Winner of the World's Worst Unintentional Site Makeover!



Yes, for a few days, IR Haven had "Image Not Available" wallpaper and numerous "Image Not Available" images, including the email link. Don't you love the cute little red stop sign X? It's so pretty...not!

No, IR Haven was NOT hacked.

I found out the hard way that Blog Explosion's image hosting has a 250 MB monthly bandwidth limit and that limit is very easy to reach. When that happens, your images no longer show; instead, you get the big red stop sign.

So I switched to Photo Bucket. They have a 10GB monthly limit on bandwidth.

By comparison, 250MB x 4 = 1 GB so Photo Bucket gives you 40 times as much bandwidth.

I will need to add the background image and some other images later today, but at least I was able to re-makeover the site in the meantime...lest some of you go blind (which would be really bad; I would feel awful)!

By the way, we're about 99% moved now.

Best Wishes,
Allen

Ah, that explains it. When you get a chance, don't forget to update your banner url on BLOG VILLAGE. We've been looking at the lovely "Image Not Available X" banner for several days now ROTFL. Good luck with all the changes.
