More Technical Problems---and a Renewed Call for Help

Another day, another major outage caused by our soon-to-be-former hosting company, Bluehost. Our sincere apologies. Ritika and I just got off the phone with Bluehost, which acknowledges that for the second time this week, hardware problems on their end are taking Lawfare off the internet.

We are on the verge of signing up with a new company, which promises both to host Lawfare and to run its technical management. If any readers have experience with a company called Blue Water Media and would like to share it, please email me with either good stories or bad. (After Bluehost, I confess to having a mild phobia about any web hosting company with the word "blue" in it, but I suppose I should get over that.)

Unfortunately, as I mentioned the other day, any permanent solution to this problem is going to come at significant financial cost to us---a cost with which we could really use help from readers. Over the past several days, a number of readers have used the donation button on our sidebar, for which I am very grateful. Thanks as well to all of those who have been using our Amazon sidebar widget to buy textbooks and other stuff. If others want to step up as well, it would be much appreciated.

And again, apologies; we will try to have this resolved as soon as we responsibly can.
