Free At Last!! Free At Last!!


It seems that sometimes, just sometimes, being a persistent, bull-headed Sicilian pays off.

I FINALLY got my domain hosting company to admit that they are complete fuck-ups and that the problem people have been having getting to this site was on THEIR end.

Holy Shit that was exhausting! Sitting in their live support chat room every other day, calling the SAME techie-chick incompetent FINALLY got me some results.

Under NORMAL conditions, women just have to LOOK at me for me to get what i want, but since she REPEATEDLY refused to naked-webcam-chat with me, she naturally couldn't see me, so it made seducing her into doing what i wanted that much harder. You might not have realized this, but I'm not much of a smooth talker. I typically rely on my looks to get me what i want.

Anyway, after up-and-down swearing to me that the problem wasn't on their end (and quite snootily, i might add), i was finally able to show them a website that reports how a site is seen from different parts of the world. For about 60% of the known universe, my site was coming up as "Unknown Host". That FINALLY got this bitch to escalate my issue to her engineers.

Cut to 24 hours later, when she emails me this:

"According to the engineers, "The issue was that a Google record was created on our end that made our DNS resolver believe it was the authority for Google. Long story short, we have blacklisted the capability of adding DNS records for Google.""

Now, she pretty much lost me right after the word 'According', but I'm pretty sure i understood her COMPLETELY before that. Anything AFTER that, my mind just translated to "Blah blah gigabytes blah blah nerd blah blah never been laid blah blah".

But, all that is neither here nor there, since Slydesblog now once again seems to be viewable by the entire known world.

Which was just in the nick of time... It was quite cruel of the Internet to deprive the world of me for so long.....

Why do you even need a domain hosting company? You are using Blogger as a platform.

Don't you think you owe it to her to meet her face to face just so she can see what's she's been missing? You know, as a thank you for her effort?

Yvonne said...

You should totally send that tech chick a picture of you, so she can see what she was missing. It's your civic duty to so. Or? "Do it for your country!" ha!
