I’m going to WorkMyAssOff.com – tomorrow. ‘Cause my server got deleted in a fever…crashed like a pepper sprout..
You know things are Really Bad when you call your dad at 8:30 to pull you out of a stairway…so let’s start there 🙂
It actually started this AM. No internet in the new house – that’s okay I’ll head down to Essencia – get a lil’ quiche, a lil’ coffee, pretend I’m in Seattle and check my mail. Whoa. Like no mail to be had. Like server is totally down. Bad times. Bad times, indeed.
So I take a lil’ swish of my yummy coffee and ring up the Planet – nothing gonna kill my day. Uh huh. So after oh…six or seven conversations, Starbucks at 72nd, 56th, and then Essencia again I get the dreaded….”we can’t get to single user mode…la la la fill in the blank with geek talk….bin/bash won’t load”….
You are soooo trying to make me have a bad day..BUT I WILL NOT DO IT! Yesterday was my bad day…my sad day…my cut myself off from everyone and heal myself kinda day….that was YESTERDAY and now it is TODAY. So freakin’ stop it, okay?
Bad times…It keeps running through my head…BAD TIMES.
So the choices at 5pm after HOURS of this crap…reinstall the Operating System or pay $150 an hour for trouble shooting…the trouble shooting I have thus received is less than stellar…Pull the raid drive, reinstall, plop the raid back in and run…
Oops. Guess the “pull the raid” command didn’t translate.
So, like, we totally wrote over all of your data.
Dad! I just fell down the stairs as I hobbled onto the internet on the only good phone jack and would please bring me wine, Hayley pop tarts and could my brother please set up wireless for me so I’m not Jack and Jill tomorrow?
And thus, I was saved from my insanity…thank you family.
And yes…Digital Freebies is down. Shall return soon – hopefully in the next 24 hours we will have the majority up and running.
But for now…I’m watching Walk the Line…drinking my Red Diamond Shiraz…and daydreaming…
Forgive my laziness…..All I wanted to do was call you and smile…
