Will the website be back up and running sometime? Or are the Russians still emailing?

The site host was a small company with very good service, but they utilized one style web cart only (ZENCART) and that worked "OK" and was good for a few years, but was just was not mobile friendly, and I made a decision after the last Denial of Service attack on my page on 09-16-2019 to take it offline, cut my ties with said host, and not have a web store of any kind at the moment.

I grew tired of the 1000's of spam emails, and when I tightened up the email protocols many legitimate emails were being killed, which led to a lot of issues with many customers getting very irate that an email was not responded to in a timely fashion.

Given the situation the industry is in, its doubtful I will put any web store back online, I am close to my retirement goals, I might just say forget it............I like the idea of pushing a bunch of shopping carts back to the rack at COSTCO or WALMART in sunny SC, a mindless job with no stress and since we have nice weather here year round, I get to be outside and away from any ringing phones.

I was wondering as I have a customer that uses your tuning and was freaking out that you went off the grid. Lol then I had to explain what all has been going on in the industry... You arenít the only one, Tyler Radewald with Punisher Performance is stopping all sales on October 1st just as a precaution. Hope you enjoy your next endeavor!
