I can log into the filemanager at Tripod and see my files. They're all there, listed by name and filesize etc, but for the life of me they don't want to load the files. And since Tripod have showed no intentions of helping me resolve the problem I thought it better to close the site down until I eventually find another host with room enough for the site to grow further than it is right now. :(

How can they cancel events at an "Ice Arena" just because the weather is on snow?!?!

Hmmm I might have an easier solution to my problems than I thought I had, but I'm not holding my breath just yet.

Ok obviously it works if I pull the pictures from an account I have on another server, but that is not optimal for either me or you. One word... Bandwidth

Am I the only one who is seeing just a purple/bluish background on this page and 4 broken images on the top left of this page? Please let me KNOW if you see or do NOT see broken images here. Also take a look at my Graphics Page and let me know if you see broken images all over the place there or see nothing unusual there. I cannot figure out if it's just me or not. And NO I still haven't heard a beep from Tripod. Sad there really isn't any free hosts left to try out :( DAMNIT!!!!!!!

Did I mention that this will also be the first time in 28 years there will be neither a christmastree or decorations of any kind? I wonder why I bother worrying about christmas dinner at all. Would probably fit DH well if we just got a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich or maybe even raman noodles. :(

I think I should rename to "Pityparty" instead. Seems more fitting these days.

What the fuck is wrong with Tripod? Nothing but the background and their stoooopid banner loads for me these days. And it's not better at my graphics page either which unfortunately also is hosted at tripod. Sent them a request for support a couple of days ago, but have heard nothing.
Some days or should I say most days I really wonder if it's worth all trouble trying to maintain a webpage or two. Unstable hosts, bad ftp connections for upload etc. Just don't know if it's worth it anymore.

So often I say I need to take a break, but the truth is that I don't have anything to take a break from or anywhere to take a break.

I knew it was too good to be true at least for now. Just hope I can keep people coming to where the sites are at right now.

I just came to think about something I read in an online journal awhile back. The journal belonged to a young Danish woman who was in the US as an aupair to work and learn the language. Most of not all of her free time was used together with other aupairs, drinking and going to nightclubs. She seemed very surprised that her host families didn't approve much of this behaviour.
Honey you were hired to do a certain job for a certain amount of money. No wonder that you had to change host family a couple of times.

I am starting to feel a sense of panic in regards to christmas shopping and cooking and making lists for this and that. Bob and I have loosely talked about what we want to eat for christmas dinner, but we have yet to make any firm plans much less any shopping list. The gift giving thing is easily done since Bob doesn't really believe in the season and I have to ask for money from him, so all of this equals to zero gifts other than the traditional bouquet of flowers being sent to my mom. Yes it does make it so much easier not having to think about it, but I still like the tradition of going shopping and giving. Maybe when and if I ever get a working permit I can go shopping without having to ask Bob all the time.
I'm still feeling that sense of panic tho :)

Good Luck with the move. Hope the standards for the toilets are better at the new digs *g*

*crossing fingers* I might have found something which will work. Just need answers to a couple of questions and then have to present it for the better half to hear what he has to say :)
On another and completely different note... Is it scarey to like watching all the disaster type programs while cooking dinner? Some people seems to think so, but what do one do when they're showing at the same time? *scratching head*

I've been looking around for a possible solution to my webhost problem, but I've come to realise that having a paid host for my graphics site is almost impossible right now I'm not able to work. Almost every host I've been looking at have big red letters in their AUP's about hosting galleries, zip files and large amount of graphics files. All I really ned for a host is the ability to host these kind of files, 10 - 15 GB of bandwidth per month (not including uploads to the account if possible), 100 - 150 MB of server space and preferred a Unix/Linux host so I can experiment with scripting languages for those platforms.

How the heck do you know just much bandwidth you're going to need? And what is the use of offering 100MB+ of space if you don't provide the bandwidth to go with it? *sigh* it is all so confusing.

bleah I'm just having two minor things to do today (dishes and dinner) but I feel more like hiding in bed. So tired

Anyone who is having a good suggestion for a good, reliable webhost who offers good bandwidth and space please MAIL me. Tripod is about to go belly up on me together with the other places where I'm hosting other parts of my site.

I already see the democrats running around like headless chickens yelling, "Oh No the new depression has begun* because NASDAQ dropped slightly by the announcement that Gore's recount commission had been ordered to stop all activity. What they fail to see or mention is, that said NASDAQ also have been dropping in the previous weeks with each new dirty trick that Gore and his team tried to pull. It's like the US have dropped off the end of the world just because it looks like Bush is becoming the next president. I have yet to hear any valid argumnets as to why he shouldn't. All I hear is that Bush is an Ass, a sleasebag and more like that. Yes his daddy have been president in the past, but to my knowledge that is not a disqualifying qualification according the the US Constitution. And frankly I don't think that eithr Bush or Gore will or would have managed to get anything significant done while in office becaus of this circus of an election. So why the scare...?

Not too far into the past, our "esteemed" leader, Monica's boyfriend, insisted that "if there was no penetration, there was no sex".......it seems like it should therefore follow: If the ballot is not penetrated, there is no vote.

I just picked up the mail (We actually got it today) And there was a small package for me with a CD by Dixie Chicks (Wide Open Spaces). I have no idea who has sent it to me and why they have sent to me because there was no letter in the package. Just the CD and nothing else. And why Dixie Chicks? I have never to my knowledge expressed any interest in Dixie Chicks. I guess it could have been much worse like someone sent the last book by Al Gore *g*
Whoever sent this please fess up, so I know if I can actually pull the wrap off the CD and listen to it.

Wow we cannot look out the windown on one side of our apartment, because the snow has piled up so high :) Was nice with a real snowstorm for a change, but damn it was and still is cold.

Thank you Ann for saying this about the whole geek thing or movement.

It's a sad day for the graphics community and those just venturing out into the world of making their own graphics. 5 or 6 big tutorial sites closed their doors due to theft and blatant copyright violations. From now on you might be lucky to get some of those tuts on a pay for CD and others are lost for the net forever (Hopefully not). Damn you thieves.

Wow DH's employer has graciously applied snow policy for today which means if people can come it's great, if not they'll just get a temp layoff. So Bob is home today :)

Ahhh snow and lots of it. Looks like it'll continue all day long and into the night :) Just wish it wasn't so damn cold.

I'm trying so hard to make something out of this christmas for hubby and I, but it aches my heart knowing that my mom will be with others but family this year and that really makes it diffecult to make it all 100% the way both hubby and I want it. Maybe next year, or the year after or...... maybe never

*sigh* This page should have had Tripods popup ads, but for some reason they're not compatible with the string I'm using to include the archive links. :( Wish I had a domain for the blog so I don't have to worry about ads or no ads.

Wondering if the archives will be included this time?

This orange look was something I just threw together when setting up the blog for the first time. It's ok, but I think I need to change it. I feel like it and I need more room to unfold my wings :)

So many blogs and journals, so little time. Lost time yet again and there is still more to read, people to get to know a little bit more. I think I'm addicted.
