Following your requests and emails regarding an update and after the drama of last week I’m pleasaed to inform you that all that is required for my domain www.gosmelltheflowers.com is for Rehan to unlocked the domain and issue me the authorisation code. He was travelling yesterday and had no internet access so hopefully it can be done today.
To make it simple I’ve opened a godaddy account leaving me to deal with the transfer between godaddy and 1&1 - thanks to both providers as they’ve been a great help – both clarifying the final step that is required.
Once it is GO! smell the flowers will return to the way it was pre-Flora 2000 and be donating 50% of everything to do with brand GSTF to Emma wheat and focus on getting our story published. We need to clean the GSTF site up pretty quickly as we’ve a couple of publishers and agents reading our manuscript now.
I am still being denied master admin access to my GO! smell the flowers site and cannot post an update, so come on RYK is me my admin code back and send the authorisation code:
I’ve honoured Rehan’s request not to publish or share his 1 on 1 emails to me here but I’m happy to share mine. I’ve just emailed him the following request to enable this issue to be closed out in a timely fashion and nor be dragged out:
My next interview is this coming Tuesday – I intend to report the direction of both sites and require you unlock the
domain and return it back to me as promised by 18:00 hours Dubai time on Monday 13th July.
To either godaddy or 1&1 is fine – I presume transfer to godaddy will be quicker.
I can then clean up both sites and focus on the positives.
I’ll post an update at coffee now keeping the readers updating so we can close this out.
I’m still waiting to hear if the so called Cyber crime charges have been dropped (for instructing our content to be moved somewhere safe and that wasn’t under threat from a $60,000 ransom) and have also asked Rehan for an update on this so an innocent victim isn’t caught up in this ridiculous saga.
This was discussed during my interview on Saturday extra on Local radio sation Dubai eye which went well and a big thanks to john Deykin and the team. 45 minutes in the hot seat running through the history of flowers and latterly coffee. I’m collecting a CD of the show later today which I’ll listen to in due course.
The tagline at coffee is ‘wake up’ and this certainly has been a wake up start to this place – we’ve more readers than ever and only a few brave souls posting comments which is understandable after such a negative start to the place.
I’m meeting a couple of potential supporting partners this week for coffee including a Dubai based adventure company and a fair trade coffee company. Rather than throw the towel on the community idea I’m going to pursue it and am drawing up plans over the coming weeks applying what I’ve learnt to date.
In the meantime I invite the contributors to post, welcome newbies Absolute Adventure and O’DB in the forest and crack on with comments and get this place GO!ng again.
Thanks for your support & understanding,
