Status of theCoralsnake website
« on: January 23, 2023, 10:50:25 AM »
Recently the web hosting service has made some changes rendering many of the hyper links inactive

I am working to address these issues.

Stay tuned for an update

I built the website myself and taught myself the machine language, so I will need to re-evaluate the options!

Thanks, I thought my internet was acting up, again.

After extensive meetings with the Coralsnake IT teams and at least one bottle of Crown Royal, it appears we should resume operations no later than Monday, January 30th

I expect those responsible will be able to find new jobs after they heal from their injuries.

First THANK YOU to everyone that sent messages and even financial support for the website, during this difficult week.

I am not a website developer, but after about 12 hours, things are running at about 95%. I will continue to work on this in the coming days.

The issues seem to have stemmed from a new webhosting company. I had to relearn the control panel functions. I sorted all the files.  I standardized file names and sorted 226 individual webpages! I found 60 dead pages. I repaired all "404 error" hyperlinks and reloaded the webpages.

I also learned there are over 3,000 pictures on the website. The unused pictures were also cleaned up and complete website backup was created.

Way to go Pete.  Being a webmaster ain't always easy, especially at the level you're at.  So it tuns out that we share a common passion, we both code up our own websites.  That can be both a rewarding and a humbling experience.  Keep up the good work, you have a very good website you can be proud of.

As of about 7 this morning from the main page and all the info links(A LOT-Thanks Pete) the only link from the index page that didn't work was the "Restoration" link and got a "404" code. I checked a few sub links and they worked but not all  that may be in the main category links. http://www.thecoralsnake.com/bigindex.html

Still tinkering away!

I added some original pictures and a note about the passing of Bill Kolb.  Its been a year since his death. He was definitely the greatest salesman of all time!

Check out the updated Gotham Ford page.

I will keep tinkering with those broken links, I have a punch list for today!

Great work on the site.  The Conelec EFI is super cool can't wait to see the completed engineering package.

Shawn, search for the Green Hornet or the Gold 1968 fastback engineering car on youtube

I installed the EFI on both (with some help) 😉

I appreciate the thought.  The sheer number of calls and emails was very gratifying.

I did receive a couple donations, but I have never solicited them.

I must say I was a little overwhelmed by the volume of material that has been posted.

Thank you all again. If you feel like support is needed, my email and paypal
are connected
