My website has been up and down the past week and a half. It’s driving me nuts.
My e-mail doesn’t work, either. It’s been on and off the past week and a half. It’s driving me nuts.
Suddenly my password doesn’t work on the server, so I can’t log into cPanel (the software that helps tweak how my website works). I need to log into cPanel to fix my e-mail. I told the server people that my password didn’t work, and that their very own tech support people told me that I needed the password so I could get into cPanel to fix my e-mail. So they e-mailed the password to me.
Anyone see the flaw in that logic? “Oh, you need a password to fix your e-mail? We’ll just e-mail it to you…” It’s driving me nuts.
I have to admit, it’s partially my own dumb fault. I’m sure if I hadn’t missed that day in second grade when they taught you that “Y” is a consonant and a vowel I’d know how to run my website today. But I missed that day in school.
I had a plan. It was a good plan. I was going to switch hosting companies. I know of a very nice hosting company that would take me. Had I been bright enough to realize that I needed to pay them first, THEN try to move all my stuff over, things would be hunky-dory right now. But I’m rather dense. I didn’t set up an account, but I somehow expected them to magically fix my stuff. Once I figured out I needed to give them some moolah, I figured I was home free! All my problems are solved! But no… Alas, my stupid password doesn’t work on my old server any more, so I can’t get a backup of all my stuff to put on the new server. Nor can I check my e-mail.
Did I tell you that they said they were going to e-mail the password to me? It’s driving me nuts.
I haven’t even had time to write in my blog. I’ve been too busy wringing my hands and gnashing my teeth over my silly website and e-mail woes to think of anything else. I pace a lot now. I haven’t slept in days. It’s driving me nuts.
It’s been over eight hours since I first told them I needed my password. I should have heard something by now…
Anyway, if anyone’s been inconvenienced by bounced e-mails or the lack of this blog, I do apologize. I am trying to get things sorted out, but I really am a color-blind historian who moonlights as a graphic designing bassist. I’m just not trained for this sort of thing. It drives me nuts.
I take a lot of pictures. As usual, you can click on the photos below to see a slightly larger version. I hope. If my website works. (It’s driving me nuts, I tell you!)
set the camera for a night exposure, and set it on the table.
The colors turned out way cool…
I like this one because it was pitch dark outside.
I held my little point-and-shoot digital camera as still as I could
with the flash off to get a long exposure.
That explains the pained look on my silly face…
(I was waiting in the car for Dagmar to come drive me somewhere.
I must have had a beer. I don’t drive if I’ve had a beer.)
