Okay, so all last week I was going crazy because any time I tried to update my blog from my laptop, it would show up on my laptop but not anywhere else. And anytime I updated my blog from another computer it would show up all over the internet, but not on my laptop. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with my laptop and I was frustrated beyond belief with my new host (they didn’t become my new host by choice, my previous host sold off their “small client” business to this new host) because they couldn’t seem to help me figure out the problem and my site speed was stupid slow.
So I found a new host.
And in the process of transferring to my new home, solved the problem that my old host’s tech service couldn’t. The LAST time I transferred hosts (willingly), they asked me to point my laptop at a specific server to make sure my site was up and running correctly. I had never cleared that command so I was pulling from the server of the company who dumped me and not my adopted server. Now it’s all fixed. But I still switched hosts. Their customer service sucked.
All that crazy computer mumbo jumbo to say…isn’t it awesome when there is this puzzle and you kind of have an idea about how to solve it but nothing you try works and then BLAMMO…problem solved? I love that.
Knitting: Scoreboard scarf (I had to add a lot of yellow because we lost to the Vikings and I’m mad about that) and socks (not fast enough, I’m only done with the cuff and 10 rows of the leg and I need to get moving!).
Sewing: My quilt! I can’t believe it. I’ve pieced together 8 of the 16 rows and it’s turning out pretty well.
Reading: Still Madame Bovary. I’m on the fence. Maybe because I absolutely hate how horribly and selfishly she behaves, but also because I relate to her in ways that make me uncomfortable.
38 in 38 update: I’m off FB for my holiday hiatus. I left a little early because I want to keep liking the people I like despite politics. It adds some time to my 2 month goal, but I’m happy with that.
Finally: I’m having a minor little surgery on my sinuses tomorrow so any good wishes, prayers, or thoughts you want to send my way will be appreciated. The whole thing is pretty cool. I never thought “up your nose with a rubber hose” would be a good thing, but I’m so ready to feel better. (And those around me regularly are too because I’m a baby about being sick.)
Catch me up on you? Anything exciting? What are you tackling this week?
