Best Weekend Ever (So Far)

I got home from Wisconsin last night and I’ve been playing catch up today.

Among, the things I’ve been trying to accomplish today, there’s an item that concerns my webhosting. I’m not even going to try to explain it because it would bore your face off but the net result is this question: is there any webhost that can walk and chew gum at the same time?

The first problem was that no one informed me there was a problem. The thing I’m trying to do wouldn’t work but I didn’t know why, only that nothing was happening. So I did some investigating and fixed the thing that made it not work. Then I tried to do my thing again but I got a new problem message.

It was like no matter how specifically I tried to articulate my question, they managed to dumb it down and answer with something completely worthless. Then I’d refine my question, and, of course, there’s no continuity, each time I lobbed it back at them I’d get a new person, who mangled my question into some other direction.

It’s like if you took your car in and said, “I’m having trouble starting my car, what’s going on with it?” And the reply was, “You’re having trouble because you bought a car,” and then you said, “I understand that I bought a car, but sometimes, in the morning it won’t start. Why won’t it start?” and then the reply was, “Many people use their cars in the morning. Your car can be used in the morning.”

I think on this last round, we’re getting somewhere but now I’m half bald from pulling my hair out in aggravation.

Meanwhile, check out the photos from my visit to Forevertron this weekend. I have a lot more good ones and I’ll post on Flickr next weekend. (Hopefully.)

    I love the car analogy. Most people don’t know how to craft an analogy that masterful.

    Wait, is that an analogy? I’ve been drinking. This weekend taught me I should drink more.

    It was the best weekend ever (so far.) I am so, so glad Shane pushed the Forevertron visit. I can’t get it out of my head that I got to walk around that place with other people who appreciated it. It was like walking through the parts of storybooks I always wished could be even a little bit real and then it was.

    The sad thing is that I think that place could be profitably visited maybe ten times, to absorb the various details; and we only had that one brief time. Well, maybe next year.

    Congratulations! I’m glad you had a good time!

    Your pics remind me that some nerdy guys just go out and buy metal detectors. Other nerdy guys go out and buy welding equipment.

    Good analogy…I went back to free blogware because I ran into the same kind of trouble with hosting. Have you found an answer yet? I dread migrating back to third party hosting but I think I’m going to do it again.

    I don’t know what Forevertron is, but I’m going to find out!

    And other nerdy guys spend a career in the scrap industry.
