I phoned my web host today and explained my situation; did they have any (small words, short phrases) documentation or instructions I could use, or could they guide my hand a bit? They didn’t, but they could, and they —
— found that I was experiencing what they called “an already known and fairly common problem” the host is experiencing. Does that mean there is a work-around? Well…no. But someone is working on it.
Would someone? Since it isn’t just me?
The techie agreed to go kick an engineer and see that a trouble call was begun. I offered, if it seemed that this would take a while, to change hosting facilities. “No,” the techie said, “just call us every 24 to 48 hours and they’ll get it fixed. Nagging works.”
Clearly, I shouldn’t have been threatening the toad last night. There are far better unsavory creatures out there who deserve it more.
