Nancy and others with websites sponsored by Lab Vision, I'd like to
reassure you that the State Society Webhosting sponsorship is still
ongoing and that we have only had some technical problems with some of
the websites (in fact, only 3 out of 17 sponsored website have had
problems). FX Roads is still in business and I am working with them to
resolve the issues. We plan to have all these websites back online this

Subject: [Histonet] state website problems

In response to the loss of the Michigan Histotechnology website problems
-I'd to let you know that our Connecticut State website was suddenly
eliminated (it was a free website sponsored by LabVision) and when we
inquired at LabVision as to why our website was suddenly eliminated and
reverted to godaddy.com (when it wasn't set to expire until Dec 2007) it
turns out that LabVision had no idea what we were talking about as far
as website sponsorship (even the marketing dept had no clue what we were
talking about).  It turns out that the website sponsoring was through
Jim Kieffer of FX Roads (a consultant for LabVision) and both Jim
Kieffer and FX Roads have disappeared from the face of the earth so our
attempts to contact him or his company have been unsuccessful.  Now all
of our hard work in setting up the website is lost, and we can't even
take over possession of the cthisto.org website without finding Jim
Kieffer or his company and getting their approval.  It is a nightmare to
say the least - and a warning that nothing for free is worth it.  To
those state societies using LabVision as a sponsor of their websites -
beware....this could happen to you too.  Can anybody give me information
on how to establish a 
new website (that our own State society will pay for)?   I don't know
to go about doing this.  Thanks - Nancy Troiano (203)785-5136
