Housekeeping

If you can see this then yet another server migration has been completed yay! I’ve made a decision that if companies are providing a less than stellar service I’m just going to pack up and go elsewhere rather than keep bashing my head complaining, voting with my feet. So no more slower than wading through treacle 1and1 control panels. Poignant moving one domain that was on Fasthosts (but hosted elsewhere), the owner died a few months ago so I had to take over the registrant details too. To be fair to Fasthosts they changed the IPS tag almost immediately…compare this to 1and1 who seem to take the best part of a day, sometimes two to change a tag FFS!

Oh Scotland,not *again*. Scotland 2 – Czech Republic 2

Emotional curve of following a Scotland football match:

Before match: hope, excitement

During match: elation, dejection, elation

10 mins to go: ecstasy “we’re going to qualify, this time we’re really, really going to do it” (reminds me of Charlie Brown trying to kick that American football)

2 mins in extra time: dejection, calamity, the-end-of-the world is nigh

After: a nation mourns

Is there any other outlet where it’s possible to go through such wild swings of emotion from one to the other in such a short space of time. But always left with that “gutted” feeling when we don’t progress.

I’m away to watch some Muppets to cheer up.
