What a day of internet craziness.Â You know, when it came to setting up this thing, I did a fair amount of research into choosing a decent hosting company.Â Iâ€™m more than a bit clueless when it comes to the interweb and I was all for anyone who could do all the WordPress shizzat for me.Â So I went for a Melbourne based company and signed up for 12 months.
I renewed in November.Â For another 12 months.Â Sunday afternoon I noticed it was broken â€“ a trip to their website showed me their forums were also broken, along with their support page.Â I figure something is all fucked up over there so Iâ€™d leave it and if it wasnâ€™t all good by Monday Iâ€™d give them a ring.
I sorta hit the ground running today at work (I had a sentence here about the annoyingness of a certain type of horse breeder *cough* Arabians *cough* but then I took it out because the last thing I want to do is offend anyone) so I didnâ€™t really think about here until lunch time.Â I open Mozilla and nada.Â At this point I head back to the website and find the phone numberâ€¦
â€˜The number you have called has been disconnected.â€™
I laugh at this point.Â I mean, what do you do really.Â I find an email address and I shoot them an email to support@… The email bounces back in about 5 seconds.
My web hosting people were clearly sucked into a black hole.
Massive kudos to Alan for saving my internet-impaired ass. Â Â There was no way I could have A) found my archives when seemingly the whole server has vanished and B) replaced everything so quickly if he hadnâ€™t been there to help.Â THANKS Al 🙂
The archives are all wrong, and for someone as anally retentive about formatting as I am, this can be a little hard to swallow.Â Still, see no evil, right?Â If itâ€™s okay with everyone I am just going to pretend everything past the first page is peachy.Â And what the hell did I post about yesterday?Â I canâ€™t even remember.Â I think I lost around three days.
So hopefully programming will return to normal from here on in.Â And just a reminder to my future self â€“
- The voice of Jeff Tweedy.
- Impending sisters.
- Finish the 2006 gig list already@!!
- I canâ€™t get no sleep.
- Pitt Town.
Please, sleep tonight?Â Sleep would be nice.
