Well, my host has given me 72 hours to fix the CPU usage problem, or be shut down. I can’t afford non-shared hosting, and it’s unlikely anything I can do will fix the issue, so unless something dramatic happens in the next 3 days, this is it for Brickley’s words.
This main site may stay, along with the gallery if it doesn’t cause the CPU limit to be exceeded, but the blog and LEGO instruction search will be shut down. It’s a pity it came to this, but that’s just the way things go sometimes. Maybe someone else will take over.
I will continue to look for other solutions, but as of now it is gone, and it is unlikely to be re-activated.
