Sonic.net has the best customers!

I sent some information to a customer about checking for interference on his line which includes welding equipment and got the following reply:

“it’s possible that my next door neighbor has secretly taken up arc welding in his living room next door, but then, now that I think about it, one of the failures happened when he was at his church giving a sermon, so I don’t think that’s it, either… (grin).”

Love it!

Feeling MUCH better

Well, after having the last few days to rest, I am feeling MUCH better than I have felt in the last few weeks. The time off of work and rest (mostly sleeping in and staying in bed) did wonders for me. I also spent the time cleaning up some files on my computer, organizing music in my iTunes to work better with syncing on my iPhone.

Beth is away visiting her dad in Spokane Washington and she will be back after the weekend. Kohl went to donate plasma and both times that he went it has turned out to be troublesome. The first day he almost passed out because of the guy next to him bleeding all over the place. The second time it was an issue because he wasn’t well enough hydrated. He will be more hydrated next time he goes so he can complete a donation.

Working while I’m sick

Well, I am not feeling well for like the third day in a row, but I have to go to work to run the front end tonight. I want to stay home in bed and rest so I can work for Sonic.net tomorrow, but I am having this feeling that may not happen as when I go to work, I come home and can hardly talk and 99% of my job at Sonic.net is talking. We will see how it goes tonight and see if I have to call and tell Sonic.net that I can’t work, which sucks because I get WAY more money for Sonic.net than I do for ShopKo, but I am more crucial to ShopKo because I am the only one available to close the front end down tonight.

Oh, well.

Changes

Well, I have spent the last few days moving my site back to Sonic.net. Gee, it has had such a wild ride. It has gone from LiveJournal to Sonic.net to my own server then to WordPress.com and now back to Sonic.net. The reasons that I moved back to Sonic.net were pretty simple really. First, while WordPress.com was WAY faster than my old machine and auto-updated, it was not very customizable (at least not as much customization as I wanted). Second, Sonic.net updated all of the member tools so you can do your own DNS edits, installed a one-click installer for WordPress with auto-updates and the best part – I get it for free as a Sonic.net employee.

Tech Support?

Who does technical support call when they need technical support? I dunno either since it was supposed to be my first day back on the phones with Sonic.net and I can’t even get into the phone queue! Kavan is trying to help me to no avail. I don’t know why it isn’t working! Oh, well.

In other news; Chris is back! I am so happy! I thought that he wasn’t going to be back until tomorrow (Tue), but he came back yesterday. I got to go and see him last night and it was a lot of fun. Man, I missed him. Well, back to work for me…..

Site Changes

I am probably going to discontinue my server colocated at Sonic.net this summer, so I have moved this domain over to WordPress.com and if it works out, I will move my other domains as well like randommexican.com, earslaidback.com and usepencil.com as well. So the site may look a little different, but it should be a LOT faster than the old server. I am also in the process of moving all of my e-mail over from Fastmail to gmail and that is taking some time. Well, it is 1:50 AM, I should get some sleep while my e-mail copies over.

Oh, and if you created a user account on my old site, I will be moving all those over to this site, but haven’t done so yet.
