May 31st, 2008

Some of you may have noticed that my blog blew up yesterday. I had been obsessively coding for a client the past two days, and didn’t have a braincell left to fix it.

My hero, Rob at ScorpWebSolutions, fixed it for me. I knew the database was intact, because I had checked it, but I didn’t know how to finish the update after a fatal error. He did it manually, after a long day at work. If you are thinking of going self-hosted, the service doesn’t get any better than ScorpWebSolutions. Thank you, Rob. I was totally freaked out.

My Grammie is doing better now. They have her in a ward where they are trying to ambulate her more, and she is not having to take such heavy painkillers. It was difficult to talk to her as she was all loopy from them. And? She didn’t come down with pneumonia, like I had feared.

I met with the new owners of the building and am thrilled to say I won’t have to move. I was dreading the prospect of another summer move, and now I can think about planting more flowers, and bulbs for the fall. All of the plants that I identified by their leaves earlier this spring have flowered, and they are exactly what I predicted they would be. Go me.

And that’s about all of my news. I was preparing a post about The Big V and the amazing dollhouse she created, but that one can wait a bit.

I’m glad to be back! Thanks again, Rob!

MISSED YOU! I thought I may have lost you … or lost the ability to reach you from work … it happens sometimes where a site is found to be ‘adult’ and is blocked by our web-filter.

GLAD THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN!

Wow! First – fantastic news about your grammie! Ambulating her is great – that shows they think she is doing well enough for it and it will keep her going too! YAY!

I’m sorry you were having so many blog troubles. That stinks. But I’m glad you have friends who helped you out. I think I’d start to go a little crazy if I suddenly couldn’t read your blog anymore. So no more blowups!

And what’s all this about clients sites and programming? You do web work in addition to all the other stuff? You really ARE Wonder Woman aren’t you?

It’s really great that you don’t have to move and I am so glad the your Grammie is on the road to recovery. But not moving is nice, really nice. If for no other reason that you get to stay witchy and not bitchy.

That is totally ok, the software company I work for had their dataservers literally blowup this weekend. I guess it was a fire that got out of control, but long story short I get to help find new homes for hundreds of websites. It is going to be a long week!
