Busted site continues

Why oh WHY do tech issues have to come up with my client right as I'm leaving town? And worse still, inexplicable ones? This morning I woke up to find my hosting company had updated my on my support ticket and it was news I did NOT want to hear. Apparently somebody (and it was NOT me!) messed up the DNS for my client's web site so it's pointing to some other domain, only that domain doesn't exist AND, like I said, I didn't do this! So in effect, the site is "there" but broken because somebody at Interland must have mixed something up. I find it unlikely they will get this problem fixed before I leave town either, since I'm sure whip-cracking is the main thing that will get them motivated, so it really stinks. Thankfully this particular client is really nice and won't fire me for this, but I hate to have to say "Um, it's broken and I'm leaving town..." *Sigh*

He he...

Not a bad quiz, except note that they don't mean "conservative" in a political sense, he he.

you are deepskyblue

Your dominant hues are cyan and blue. You like people and enjoy making friends. You're conservative and like to make sure things make sense before you step into them, especially in relationships. You are curious but respected for your opinions by people who you sometimes wouldn't even suspect.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

die, die, die!

oh, i feel like killing right now.

i had this whole idea of how i'd be getting ready to leave, final preparations, including setting up my insurance, but nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, instead i have to spend like two fucking hours on the phone with my web hosting company.

i cannot believe their incompetence -- or the fact that none of these sales reps, billing clerks or tech support people has at any times said "sorry" even though they obviously screwed up!

the latest news is that no, the domain isn't pointing wrong, but that the account was frozen for non-payment! this is insane, since my client paid me and payment is supposed to come automatic. true, the fact i didn't notice this points to poor accounting but GOD, that was 1 1/2 years ago and they suddenly freeze/delete the account the day before i'm going on a freaking trip?!

so these lovely people have had me do "backpayment" and now i have to set up a whole new account for my client. in the meantime all the records of the pop email addresses i had set up for him are gone, so i have to do them all over again. i at least have all the web site files but aaaaaaaaaargh, SHIT, that is super super super annoying.

i rarely do this but...

first i deal with web hosting company all morning, now i am trying to fill our application for private health insurance. baaaah. this form is friggin' ridiculous. i can't really even fit all the different things i went to the doctor about in the last two years, so i just summarized with allergies and "female problems" (lol, it says that on the form, i think). another funny thing, they want to know my doctor, but i go to a clinic and have had about six doctors there since 1997, so i'm like "well, a bunch of them." lol. i like that clinic a lot, it's great, but my doctors tend to switch around. as long as they're nice and competent and keep their records straights, it's ok with me. but the FORM! eeek!
