Well my site’s still up and running. Woo hoo! My saga:

11:00 pm : purchase hosting services for newest site
11:10 pm : change DNS settings with domain holder for new site
11:30 pm : realize that not only is this site’s mail down, but so’s the entire site. No access. Big problem
11:40 pm : after panic subsides, check DNS settings on this site. Not even close to correct. Panic again that I accidentally changed those as well. I change them back. Acutely aware of the fact that DNS changes could take up to 72 hours.
11:50-1:00 : try desperately to get someone in support on the phone.
1:10 AM : someone picks up the phone. Turns out lightning took out their offsite servers and some were still down.
1:30 AM : site comes back up. I thank the tech gods.

Long story longer: spending two and a half hours trying to fix something that’s out of my hands is not fun.

I think I have a love/hate relationship with technology.
