Crashed my site like a big dog. UH OH.

Last Update: November 04, 2015

So there I was... happily uploading ALLLL the pics into my Wordpress that I've been hoarding in the camera for over a week... in one shot. Maybe 50 pics? Maybe 70? Yeah I know.

I don't search for pics, I just take them. It gives me a better connection with what I've blogged to think all day about what to pounce on next for a pic.

And having chicken anecdotes handy doesn't hurt.

THEN... IT HAPPENED!

Everything froze.

I thought I lost internet, but funny thing... every other site would come up.

Of course I quickly checked it on the cell, and various pages.


NOTHING! MY SITE WAS GGGGGGG-G-G-G-ONE!


My twisted brain immediately rifled through the "Kyle says" files, and I really don't remember anything about breaking your site with pics...

Then I had the presence of mind to send a plaintive wail out to SITE SUPPORT.

They even have a first choice on the menu of SITE DOWN. OK... I'm doin' the right thing. Now to wait and white knuckle it...


Then, POW! BACK UP!


I just sat there hyperventilating and batting my stupid eyeballs in shock and relief... and resting. O.M.G. There is a God.

Actually I'm not sure if they even had time to work on it by the time it came up, but Site Support responded right away and I'll give them full credit, if for no other reason than that there is always SOMEONE to hear the plaintive wail of us tech-challenged blogger-wannabe's!

I've always white knuckled my work on the internet - between pushing send on an email prematurely, or ftp-ing something not coded right - or whatever. I am certain the computer is going to turn to dust on me, if not the entire internet.

I can't tell you how great it feels to have REAL "SITE SUPPORT".


This is a seriously stable internet home, up in here, people!

Don't panic. JUST. MESSAGE. SITE. SUPPORT.

(Wait. Is that a chicken? On a dog? In the house? Well yes it is... that's a chicken that needs a DIAPER is what that is!)

Panic over Alexx. Has your heart rate and blood pressure stabilized yet? ;)) Excellent news Sir. I gave a whimper for help once myself and the support team responded within 5mins and had everything back to normal within 10. They are very responsive and a great safety net for us all!
Cheers
