Armageddon Is Knockin On The Door

22 replies
Well, this day has been hell...literally.

1. My one web host has had a disk drive failure (started yesterday) and 3 of
my sites are still down going on close to 36 hours.

2. PayPal has decided that they're just going to screw up everybody's day
and send out IPNs with the morning coffee and donut.

3. We've got people outsourcing work to folks in outer Mongolia and
wondering why their articles resemble something out of a paper shredder.

4. I've decided that I have nothing better to do than insult every affiliate
marketer on the planet. So much for ever seeing a name under my Clickbank
accounts but my own.

5. I've got a box of PMs from people who have ZERO posts on this forum
but they either want me to:

buy their product
sell their product
endorse their product
feed their pet dachshund for a week.

And the PMs read like a chapter out of War and Peace.

Talk about folks with a ton of time on their hands.

6. And on top of all that, I can't get emails from about 600 support
customers because...drum roll...my freakin web host is down.

So yes, Armageddon is definitely right around the corner and I'm just
about ready to get into my wet suit and jump right in.

The weenie roast at Hell's Kitchen starts around 2 AM.

Don't be late.

          When I have days like that, I just go lay on the beach. Now I realize that the Jersey shore isn't O'ahu, but it's nice, and it is a beach. This too shall pass - it just passes faster when your on the beach.

            Sorry to hear all that Steve...

            I've been there done that...I hate those days so I just take some days off.

            It all gets better though when I look at my bank account though

            On Another note...

            If you do ALL of your customer support have you ever considered outsourcing most of it? But not to Mongolia of course

        Damn it! I didn't know you fed pets. I could have used you when I went on vacation to feed my beagles.

        Maybe next year...I will pm you.

            The sun'll come out
            Tomorrow
            Bet your bottom dollar
            That tomorrow
            There'll be sun!
            Just thinkin' about
            Tomorrow
            Clears away the cobwebs,
            And the sorrow
            'Til there's none!
            When I'm stuck a day
            That's gray,
            And lonely,
            I just stick out my chin
            And Grin,
            And Say,
            Oh
            The sun'll come out
            Tomorrow
            So ya gotta hang on
            'Til tomorrow

            Mr. Wagenheim,

            I just want you to know that armageddon is not knocking on the door, however it is in the next town over, can't tell you what town because that would ruin the surprise.

            However in the mean time the marshmallows are still soft, and the gummy bears are not really gum.

          Hey Steven,

          I feel what you're dealing with because issues of my own that I won't even get into with PayPal etc.

          Here's what I try to keep in mind with these types of situations when they happen.

          Are they life threatening?

          There is a much larger aspect on what's going on right now in the world that would make our IM issues look a bit less of a disaster like all those hurricanes brewing right now as we speak near the east coast.

          We ain't seen nothing yet in reality of the world view of what's coming down the pike and these are little things to help us prepare for really tough ----.

          Here's a video that helps put things into perspective for me when dealing with IM issues. Maybe it will help see what others are going through right now in the larger world view.


          Cheers,
          Dean

            Hi Steven,

            perhaps it's just the Universe that is trying to tell you
            to take a pause. And to take a contemplative (passive)
            phase in opposition to a creative (active) one.


            cheers,

            Gian

                  Steven -

                  It's all in the interpretation - instead of Armegeddon I think of days like that as Fate giving me a day off.

                  Nothing working? Why bother? Hit the beach!

                    I thought I had a bad day today.

                    I even went for a lie down this afternoon I was so stressed but not as bad as that and tomorrow will be another day to discover the shit that awaits.

                    If you don't like dachshunds can I book you to look after my cats next June? They are very relaxing.

    That made me chuckle too!

    Hope it gets better for you soon Steven.

    I hate days like that even when my few email accounts go down.

    All the best
