And we’re back

Well hello, nice to see you website.

After a minor debacle in the webisphere partly caused by marital lack of communication about renewing domain name, my blog is back.

It was offline for about three days…thought we had 30 days from July 20 to move/renew but it turns out to have been less. Reminder in the phone went off at an inopportune time in a doctor’s office and was accidentally forgotten…

Kudos to the team at Godaddy.com, which I paid to transfer my domain to late last night (thinking I was so smart and could sort it out without help!).

Alas I found out this morning part way into authorising the transfer the lapsed renewal left me in no-man’s land. So I had to pay to stay where I had been all along at Perth iX. No problem, other than I had already paid Godaddy to re-register and transfer for about 2-3 years!

A quick call to a US 24/7 call centre and it was all fixed. Within minutes I had the cancellation and credit card reversal info. Havem’t checked the credit card yet but am confident it has all gone smoothly – the Godaddy policy is it it didn’t work I didn’t need to pay.

And thanks to Adam at Perth iX for getting things sorted at this end – nothing worse than clicking and seeing nothing and the only proof I had ever blogged was  the Google cache!
