We’re Back!

Hi JLPOA!

I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that after about four (4) weeks of fighting with IPOWER Support the “home page” of the JLPOA website is back!

The bad news is that we have lost our home page (blog) history due to a corruption. While IPOWER, the website hosting solution that we have been using for years, does have backup and restore provisions in place, sadly, their backup does not make provisions for blog pages and, as a result, the JLPOA blog history is lost.

Official IPOWER Support Correspondence:
“Hello,
I apologize for the inconvenience regarding the issue. Since the home page is a blog page and weebly blog is always accessed from the weebly server and we do not keep the backup of weebly blog on our server, unfortunately, it is not possible to restore. Therefore, I suggest you to please recreate the blog page once again.

You can refer link http://www.ipower.com/legal/legal_useragreement.bml for the backup and restore policy. Please refer the mail clause User’s Responsibilities and sub-point “f” for restore policy.

If you have any further questions, please update the Support Console.
Sincerely,
Priyashree S
Technical Specialist”

The rest of the website is and has been completely functional throughout the duration.

Unfortunately, we have uncovered a fairly large inadequacy with regard to this provider’s services, support and backup procedures. Frankly, it is absolutely unacceptable and it is not typical in the industry.

As such, I am currently looking at other options for the future JLPOA website. In the meantime I have recreated the home page (blog page) so you can expect regular updates throughout the Summer\Winter months.

I expect the changeover (to the new host) to take place late in 2015.  Until then, we will continue to use IPOWER.

See ya at the lake!

Please let me know if you have any questions.
