News from Anderson:
Huge Chaos at Registerfly makes avant the victim.

Follow this link to a typical Regfly story,
http://www.kingnomar.com/162/huge-chaos-at-registerfly/

And because of registryfly's technical problem,Anderson cannot move data to another dns server yet.

He feels sorry for any inconvenience brought to you all.

I knew I was right about storing stuff on-line!

Folks, if you go to http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?t=15520 you'll find how to switch to using IE Favorites, which will bring back all of the ones you had before you went on-line since they are stored in IE. They'll still be called Bookmarks, but at least you'll have them.

As for Form Filling and Passwords, consider paying for RoboForm--at least you'll know where your data is!

Or, use Avant's USB version. It uses Avant's bookmarks (which I like) and can be run off of your hard drive, too.

The point is that all the online stuff that AB uses is stored on a server whose domain was registered with RegisterFly; this company has been closed due to financial and management problems, as far as I know, so all domains that have been registered with them are not working: this means that any of those sites cannot be reached by anybody, just like it didn't exist in the first place. What is needed is to re-register those domains with a new registrar, wait for the time necessary for those changes to be propagated to the whole Net, then everything will be back again - hopefully.

Events like this are useful to understand the real limits of "online anything": if a "shortage" doesn't bother you, then you can happily use it; if, on the contrary, the unavailability of what you've stored online (bookmarks or anything, remember there are services out there for online backup also, etc.) is a problem, then definitely do not use online storage.

Well... I would have liked to be informed about this problem as soon as it happened. I had to format and reinstall Windows just today. I was absolutely confident to find all my stuff on the server, so I didn't make any backup of Avant and now... everything's gone. 8(

This was a while ago (2 months). Everything has been solved since then.

Hello! There is the possibility of recovering bookmarks and autofill? This issue affects me because it had EVERYTHING on their servers.
