Thurs. Feb. 8, 2018: More Web Host Frustration

Thursday, February 08, 2018
Waning Moon
Sunny and cold

Busy, busy, busy.

I have mixed feelings about A2 webhosting. On the one hand, when I have a question, the answer they give me works.

On the other hand, they only give me PART of what I need, so I have to then ask another question.

I paid them TWO WEEKS AGO and I’m still trying to get into the cPanel in order to build my site. That’s not okay. They’re still miles better than either 1and1 or GreenGeeks, but it’s frustrating. I hope, once the sites are built and live, there won’t be problems. Which is why I only signed with them for a year.

SPIRIT REPOSITORY is moving forward, albeit more slowly than I would like. But the work with my editor, in combination with the 10 day extension on the deadline, makes it possible.

Of course, I will lose a few days’ worth of writing next week due to family issues, but I’ll have to dig in the next few days to make them up.

MYTH & INTERPRETATION is moving along, too. I think we’ll come in just under 50K.

I finished the print books in one contest category, and am moving on to the next. So far, this year’s entries are VERY competitive, which is great. The next batch comes at the end of the month, and I want to make sure I’m through the first batch before it arrives.

I need a new drum for my laser printer. I’ve been using it steadily for nearly six years. It’s done very well. I’d like to invest in a color laser printer in the not-too-distant future as a companion. I’m using the black one for manuscripts and articles, but I need color for other promotional materials.

I have some client work to do today that needs to go out tomorrow, and dig in to the writing.

Eventually, I’ll be able to get in to build my damn websites. I hope. What is so goddamn impossible about giving me the correct link so that I can log in to my own site? Not happy.
