Hello. My name is Eric, and I am a DUMBASS.

[Crowd] “Hiiiiiii Eric!”

I’m not sure how i did it, but it was a screwup of “I Love Lucy” proportions.
I managed to wipe out my whole site, changed my password so I couldn’t get back in….

And it took two days for me to figure it out because I thought my site was still propagating.

It’s all fixed now, and I don’t think I can do that again if I tried.

Perhaps it’s for the best that the last post is lost forever, too. It was getting ugly between me, Len and another unnamed party. We said things that I’m sure we were gonna regret in the long run.

Lots of stuff going on and I will fill you in after a brief word from our sponsor….
[Cue “I Love Lucy” theme song….]

  1. Hey don’t beat yourself up, that mistake might have been partly the fault of the automated set up system that we use for setting up the sites, because it set you up in the system twice, it might have messed things up good. Of course its fixed now or I wouldn’t be able to do this, and I am looking into why it whiped out the site.

  2. It could have been a wide number of things (namely my backing up when setting up the account and having two credit cards and several paypal accounts that I kept switching off on during the registration process).

    Could also be that God hates me. Can’t rule that out. :0)

    Either way, it’s no biggie, and I find it really funny. I had a busy weekend, doing emergency work for a client, and meeting with some high-powered dudes on Sunday… so I didn’t have too much time to worry about this.

    Important thing is I’m back and stabilized, despite my best efforts to sabotage myself. :0)

  3. I was wondering if it had something to do with the DNS nameserver setup being in transit. When I switched namehosting from the registrar I originally used over to my webhost, my site went byebye for a while too. It wasn’t an extended thing, but it did take some time for it to propagate.
