Hello, Is There Anybody Out There?

No, this is most definitely NOT a post about Pink Floyd, despite the title and banner pic.

That was just my incredibly adept attempt to amuse you, since the rest of this post is boring as shit.

Specifically, has anyone been having trouble getting to this site lately?

A few years back, either my hosting company, or Blogger (or Hell, maybe it was both!  Conspiracy, baby!) decided to screw with my DNS and, based on where you were in the world, some people were unable to get to my site.  After countless phone calls and denials on their parts, after about a month, everything magically started working again.

Well, the interwebs might once again be fucking with me, because i think it may be happening again.

For the past 2 weeks, sometimes i again get a DNS error trying to get to Slydesblog.  It seems to happen for an hour or so each day, and then magically clears itself up.

I had thought it was just my company's access to the Internet that was causing the trouble, since they block EVERYTHING here and i generally cant see Jack Shit from work.

But then last week i received a note from someone saying that they too were having trouble accessing my site.

So now, my friends, my dander is up. 

I just need to know if anyone else is having any issues, or is this merely the case of TWO people who work for companies with shitty Internet access?

So, if you cant get to my site, then you cant be reading this, can you?  In which case, I'm talking to myself.  That CAN'T be good for my ego, or fragile mental state.

But, if you are reading this through your feed reader but can't actually get here to comment, can you please do me a solid and send me a quick email at apedone (at) optonline (dot) net?

As a way of thanks, i promise to fully service each one of you who helps me troubleshoot.

And before you ask, yes, that includes anal.

No problem here.

I've accessed you with no problems more times than I care to admit.

It's probably just the fine folks at blogger adjusting some gears, tightening some screws, adding some lubricant,tossing some salad, etc., etc....

and literally, minutes after i posted this, i was blocked from my site for the rest of the day

Gonna go ahead and pass on the anal, but just wanted to let you know, no problems here. Clicked on you through my blogger reading list.

I'm in, I'm in! When you say "service" does that include breakfast afterwards? 'Cause you know, I tend to get the "I'm hungries" after being serviced. Heh.
