Tag, I’m it

So I was tagged. Twice. So I will respond, finally. Oh, how hard it is to blog lately. Thanks goodness for ma.gnolia’s feed. :)

Community Guy – Jake McKee » The Things I Can’t Travel Without

What can I not travel without. Hmm… my ticket, clothes, :P Ok for real.

  1. A laptop. I have a Macbook and a Macbook Pro. I don’t really go anywhere without them when I am not traveling. When I am traveling, they are almost always on me.
  2. My Ellington “Vertical Multi-Tasker” backpack. Quite possibly the best bag I have ever bought. And I have bought alot of back. Thin, but holds tons of stuff. Professional, but still a functional backpack. This bag has been around the world this year with me. When it dies, I will buy another immediately.
  3. My ipod packed wth podcasts. I can’t go anywhere without my podcasts. Buzz out loud and Cynopsis for news and Best Week Ever and Ask A Ninja for fun are current traveling favs.
  4. Airbourne. I get sick alot. This stuff helps.
  5. Skype. The more people I can talk to when I am traveling, especially overseas, the better. I was gone for a great deal of Sept-Nov last year and will be gone most of March this time. Skype helps homesickness, especially being able to see a loved one’s face.
  6. Space bag – I am so getting one of these before my next trip. It totally saves space and is a perfect place for dirty clothes in a tiny suitcase.
  7. Blackberry. I just got the world edition, but my blackberry is nice to have around when I dont want to lug my computer around town. I WISH I had an iphone, but until they are on verizon, I will have to wait (possibly forever).
  8. Offline google reader. LOVE reading my backlog of feeds and then re-syncing when I get back to an internet connection off the flight. I will never catch up, but at least when it’s offline, it LOOKS as if I am making progress
  9. I remembered another one – graph paper notebooks.  For work, I like the multi-colored, tabbed, spiral bound Clairefontaine notebooks, that I can only find at Container Store (yet not online :( ).  For personal, I use the black Moleskin version.  Something about the graph paper tho…

Game Time: 8 things you didn’t know… « Izzy Neis

Little late on the reply… or am I early? Regardless, here are more:

  1. Lately pop and R&B songs have tons of meaning to me. That is a bad thing, in case you didn’t know.
  2. My dog’s name is Linus, he is a black pug and he is amazing, even with all the snoring and farting.
  3. I can’t watch TV passively unless I am sick. I have to be on my computer, knitting, folding clothes or otherwise multi-tasking.
  4. I love evangelizing for products/services that I love (See my blog and multiple twitter posts). I live WOMM. :)
  5. I collect indie toys, like those at Rotofugi.
  6. I can cross-stitch, quilt, knit, crochet, make clothes, spin pottery, craft and do tons of other handi-craft.
  7. I could eat Indian buffet everyday.
  8. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Because its about food and family.

I tag Chris, Brian, Shea, Amy, Lizzie, Sara, Colleen, and Jerry. Pick one or both (or neither) of the memes to reply to.

DNS nightmare

While I am known to go off on a random rant every now and then, I am usually not one to flame someone.  I prefer to bite my tongue and have the silence speak volumes.  When I like something, though, I will sing it’s praises from the mountain tops.

This is, unfortunately, a post about the former sort situation.

We are having a heck of a time with 1&1 hosting.  They had been how our company had hosted the domains it was parking on for our various brands, etc.  Most of the sites redirected to another corporate site.  1&1 lacked the scaling abilities, access, and customer service objectives we desired to grow with our web strategies.  So we found another company that did.  So we tried to switch our domains from 1&1 to our new company.  Simple (relatively) right?  No…
 
What progressed was the worst customer service experience I have experienced in a long time.  The normal 24-72 hours switch (that is annoying to begin with) is now going on 7 days.  Some IPs can reach our site, others get server not found. 

But to add insult to injury, they are not helpful or understanding about the process.  They were not forthcoming about non-industry standards that they practiced for transferring domains (such as their policy of acknowledging that we wanted to switch within a 48 hour period, of which they chose to acknowledge at hour 48).  When we called mulitple times to have the situation explained to us, they pretended each call resolved the issue and sending out emails saying as such – even though the phone conversations left everything not quite resolved.

Everything is set now, but this is me going on the books as not happy with the customer service I received from 1&!.  They get an official :( from Joi.  Those who know me, know that is not a good thing to get.
