(… and I hear a voice from a distance asking, “Why not forever?”)
I have heard some people saying that some things/people cannot be praised or else it/they will end up screwing up things. I guess me praising my web hosting company (ServerFreak) just a day ago ended up with you guys staring at the screen below for the past 17 hours.
(In an attempt to recreate the screenshot above, I opened a URL that doesn’t (shouldn’t) exist — dafasdfasdfasdf.com. What are the odds for a domain like that to be registered, right? Now, try it dafasdfasdfasdf.com)
So, does that means I am ready to give ServerFreak the biggest slap on the face? Never! In fact, I don’t blame them at all. But, someone has to be blamed, right? So, who? Netmyne! Why? The server is hosted there loh! Duh!
Update: Hmmm…seems like ServerFreak bought the server. Netmyne’s job is just to host it only. But still, I don’t blame ServerFreak. *frantically looking for an excuse to blame Netmyne* Ahhh….I know. Must be the fengshui at Netmyne not good, that’s why the harddisk broke!
The server has been running for maybe a month or so only and the harddisk is already broken. After a few minutes of damage assessment, I realized I lost my previous post and some comments. I also lost 2 votes in my first poll. ARGGHHH!!! But luckily I have a copy of the previous post in my local drive and I remember what the two votes were. As for the comments, I can retrieve them from my mailbox. At the end of the day, the damages were minimal. *phewww*
They replaced the faulty harddisk with a new one. I will try to remind myself to make a backup once every two days or so, for the next 30 days. That is because if a new harddisk has any manufacturing defects, it should show by then (I think). Anyway, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
On an unrelated topic, support my attempt to increase awareness on scams! Read this post and vote. There is 5 more days to prepare a post for it. On 30th April 2007, those who are willing to join this campaign will need to publish a post regarding scams in their own blog(s). If this campaign is successful, we can even do it a “monthly thing” — one post at the end of every month. I even made an ugly banner/button for it. Can someone please help design a better one?
UPDATE: If you commented in my post but don’t see it there anymore, don’t worry. I’ll add those comments back soon.
UPDATE 2: All comments were added back up. *BIG LONG SIGGHHH* What I need to do next, is to RE-ANSWER all the comments again. DEJAVU. LOL!
UPDATE 3: All done. Everything is back to normal. *exhausted*
