Update: The problem appears to be fixed for the moment. Time will tell.
This blog may be dead to me. My ISP continues to have network problems, so I can’t reach it from home. Now, apparently, I can’t reach it from work either. I can post to it, though some backdoor access I have set up, but I can’t edit or make changes. I can’t assign categories or tags to a post. Everything goes up as “General.” I can’t even look at it to see if this post goes up or not, or to even see what it looks like, if there’s a problem with a link. etc. I can’t approve comments from first time commenters, etc. I can’t do anything to it from either of the locations where I spend most of my time. So, I have a very, very, very, very small and infrequent window in which I can really do much of anything with it for the foreseeable future.
After endless problems with hosting, this may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. I realize, of course, that I’m writing this out of anger and frustration at the moment, but it seems I keep having one technological problem after another with this blog. I haven’t heard anything from my ISP about the network issue or if/when it will be worked out. Now I apparently have to find time to journey out to a Starbucks or Borders, or find a wireless connection I can hijack and pray that it works. Between work and family, I’m sure I can find maybe an hour or two a week to journey out to a location where I can actually reach my own blog.
I’m not sure what my technological solutions are at this point, other than to wait and home things fix themselves, at least until they fall apart again. I’d go back to Typepad, but it has significant issues of it’s own, as does Blogger. And I’m not sure I have another server move in me, particularly since there’s only that small, infrequent window in which I can contact the server anyway.
So, this is my technological rant. It’s the only thing you’ll probably hear from me today, or tomorrow, etc., given the significant technological roadblocks facing my blogging at this point, unless someone has a suggestion or recommendation.
