fs.net

Yesterday
Me: YAY! fs.net is back up! *backs up MySQL databases*

e-mail from HostAffect: We sold all you guys to a new company! Rejoice!

Me: o_o No ****

Today
e-mail from HostAffect Steadfast Networks: *flowery* Changes! We’re also moving you to our servers in Chicago. “…the full moving process will likely take two days.”

Me: O_o

webhostingtalk forums search on steadfastnetworks: No bad news! But everyone’s talking mostly about dedicated servers and resellers, which you’re not using!

Right Now
Me: o.o … ???

I don’t know, maybe I’ll stay with this Steadfast hosting. I don’t have any money for new hosting anyway. ^_^;;; SFN has been around for 5? years now, so that’s cool. Since I’ve seen mainly hosting companies that have existed for only a year or months all this week … I’m leaning toward trusting them. :b They also don’t seem to be underpricing themselves, looking at the shared hosting. >_> I don’t know if I’m allowed to use Daddy’s credit card every month for a $5 charge. I also don’t know if I have the mind to remember to pay every month. *shrug*

I have to e-mail them about their “extra domains are $2 a month” line. Does that mean an addon domain, or actually hosting the domain on the server? Okay, that question doesn’t make much sense. x_x I don’t like contacting support people. I always feel stupid. But maybe it was just the Endore support … I contacted Your-Site.com support ’cause I had a question about these hits for .pl scripts in my logs, and they didn’t make me feel stupid. :) I dunno.

My mind is going byebye. I’m writing down all these different things, aren’t I? Maybe I should ask, or would the domain itself be included in the hosting package … ?? I dunno. Why do I own two domain names? And I want a third. :b

I’m tired now. And hot. Why is it so hot now?

I just realized SFN doesn’t have a 30-day money back guarantee. O_o They don’t have any money back guarantee. That’s just … weird.

Hey lookie, it says “Hosting for up to 3 domains” under their $20/mo deal. I wonder if that’s different than what they said in the other line. I dunno. Maybe I could ask, Is that addon domains or something else? Hur hur, yeah, something else. Smart brain, oh yes.

… Okay I’ll stop thinking about that.

During classes today I kept adding things to a to-do list. I think I did all the really important stuff. I don’t really know though. >_> My brain is kind of lost and drifting around. But I still feel like I have things to do. I could look over my math homework. I don’t really see the point though, if my mind isn’t going to understand it. Even in chem today I kept making weird mistakes on the math.

I got my chem quiz back, and I did even worse on this one than the last one. >_>;; I thought I’d done really well on it. But I guess I didn’t. See, there were eight questions. I got all the points up to the third to last one, where I made one stupid mistake and got the wrong answer. I got partial credit on that, but the next two questions built up on that one question, so … I got those two completely wrong and I didn’t get any credit on either of those. *sighs* 32 out of 50. I know I have a credit/no credit thing in that class, but still, I’m (maybe stupidly) hoping that I’ll get an A in chem 1A next semester. So that way I could get a B in Speech. >b

Earlier today I was really irritated. Now I’m uncomfortable because of some heat that seems to surround me and depressed because of my stupidity.

Anyway. Uh. I think that’s all I did today. Look up stuff on hosting. Also read blogs/journals. Made one icon that I don’t really like but MEH. Made two other icons from Get Fuzzy comics that are all right, but … they’re not very icon designery, if you know what I mean. … Crop, text, and a border, voila, icon.

Okay okay okay enough of that. Last night I bought Hot Gimmick vol. 4 for only $2.32. XD Waldenbooks emailed me a 20% off coupon, which I coupled with my 10% Reader’s Discount and my $5 off coupon. Yeah. XD I’m maybe 2/5 through it. I don’t really know why I stopped reading it. o.o

Record to self: turned laptop on sometime around 2:20. Off of standby … I don’t remember. 2:35? Laptop still unresponsive, put it on standby again … 3:00 still unresponsive … pushed the power button over and over and it started up nicely, but then it wouldn’t really do anything. (I tried to restart so I could connect to the internet.) So I took out all the power sources and started it up again and it worked. That was maybe 3:30.

there’s got to be another way

Hah, I just realized there’s this option to have people registered before they can comment … and that I had it marked “yes” ^^;; I don’t really know how I’d have people register. How did I register in this thing? I forgot. Uhh … too lazy to go find out.

Yesterday I watched Mean Girls. Mum thinks it was a copy of some executive’s video, and not a pirate, ’cause it was bad quality, but in a good way. Meaning, it wasn’t slanted, and there weren’t shadows of people walking across. ^^;; (unlike Shrek, which we watched Saturday.) It was just fuzzzzy and there was an annoying crackle in the background, which I managed to partially get rid of (Mum: “There was background noise?” ^^;).

I liked Mean Girls, but it wasn’t as good as the commercials make it out to be … :/ I don’t know if I’d watch it again. But I’d tell people to go see it if they’re interested! (And … I’m not a hypocrite; I wouldn’t have paid theater admission to see it, I wouldn’t have rented it from Blockbuster, and if it weren’t on HBO later I’d go through my whole life without having seen it.)

Shrek was good. Not fantabulously amazing, but if anyone had a DVD or paid for my ticket, I’d see it again. >b

Most of my summer so far, my internet access has been subpar. :( Half the time it’s really really really really really slow and the other half it’s all right. One time when it was slow I tried running a speed test, and my browser sat there for about ten minutes (or more) before the site told me the id thingamabobber had timed out and I should check to make sure I met the requirements of the test (cable or DSL access). O_o

Earlier this year I finally managed to get Launch videos to work on my laptop, but now they don’t work because the internet speed is too slow and the video keeps “buffering” or my connection is broken and I have to click OK to restart the video, but that never works and the window just freezes and I can’t do anything with it.

Also, the host servers I use for fs.net (Host Affect) seem to be down quite a bit. I don’t know. They say they have 99.9% uptime (equalling 45 minutes per month of downtime), which means roughly 1.5 minutes downtime every day. A week or two ago I couldn’t get fs.net for an hour or so almost every day. I didn’t think the internet was that slow then, either. x_x I dunno.

I have 21 different nail polish colors. Blues, pinks, purples, reds, and shimmery colors. I also have four clear bottles (one’s this Sally Hansens diamond strength thing, one is a plain clear color, one is Cutex Strong Nail with glitter in it, and the last is a topcoat). Right now I like only two or three of the colors. I want new nail polish. ^^;;; Yeah, I’m horrible all right.

Books I want to reread: Sabriel and Lirael, Crown Duel, and the Ender series. I also want to reread The Sandman series. I also have By the River Piedra I Sat and Wept to read. I just have to finish reading Jo’s Boys. Blah. That one is so unlike Little Women … but I won’t get rid of it, because it’s part of the series. ^^;;; I also have to buy Abhorsen before I read Sabriel or Lirael. That came out … a looong time ago … but it didn’t go to paperback for a while, and by the time it did I’d stopped going to the young adult section. :(

I have ten dollars. I want anime posters, Yeah Yeah Yeahs album, Confidential Confessions 4, Abhorsen, and The Time Traveler’s Wife. ^^;; Good luck to me.

bury it

I don’t know what to say. I’m not really playing video games. The one I’m playing the most is The New Tetris, and I play that one about twice a week. I haven’t played OoT since … the last time I played, I dunno when that was, but I got about halfway through the forest temple. I’ve played Link to the Past twice since classes ended. I got through part of the second place … the place where I get the power glove. But then I kept getting hit and I lost the fairy I spent so much time looking for. >_> So I stopped playing.

I kinda sorta finished cleaning out my closet. I should really find another place to put my Barbies so I could put a box where they are, then I could move more stuff to the storage area above, and have more space for clothes.

I don’t have any other place for my Barbies though. I think Auntie G keeps her in the garage. ^^;; We don’t have any space in the garage. Mum just spent the longest time cleaning it out, and it’s still a tight fit. I guess it doesn’t help that one car in there is a van and the other is a car bigger than mine.

I think I want to sell my Dodgers Barbie. I don’t like the Dodgers that much. But I keep thinking, ‘Don’t make money! Give it away!’ Then I think, ‘But who would want to buy a collectible Dodgers Barbie from the Dorothy Brown School?’ Or wherever we donate stuff … I dunno. ^^;;

I want to get rid of some of my manga too. I don’t really feel like giving it away, ’cause I don’t know who really would want to read it, but then I feel bad making money off it when … I don’t know.

I owe Daddy $15 for the hosting I bought. Which really really seems to be down more often than Endore (when they were good), and Endore only guaranteed 99.5% uptime. But then again, I paid $100 for Endore. ^^;; Then $50. I also owe Mum $32. Plus a portion of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, for Daddy for Father’s Day. Then I need to save up $200 more dollars to deposit in my bank account. Then I can start spending again.

I really need a new CD player.

downtime, racing, and cuts

Oi. -.- I can’t stand not being able to see my site. *glares* I don’t know how often or for how long fs.net goes down, but it kind of seems like it’s more than the 45 or whatever minutes Host Affect says. :/

But anyway. I don’t know if I misheard W88 or if he was misinformed but Sterling Marlin was in the all-star race last night. I don’t think he finished though. :( Terry Labonte finished 14th. Pooh. I found out last night that he’s won the all-star race twice before, so that was cool. ^_^

Hm. Oh yeah. Here’s the screenshot I took of that lady. :) I’m thinking of watching parts of that movie and seeing if I couldn’t maybe make some mini movie LJ icons. XP
