It’s me, Charlie Brown

Ever feel like good ol’ Chuck, when he gets smacked in the head with the football?

Cripes.

I was all set to tell you about the Galaxy SIII phones that the Thriller and I procured yesterday, but decided to check some emails first. I had a notice from SiteGround.com (the best web host anywhere) that one of my add-on domain slots was due to expire. Well, since I told you recently that I was letting go of my iron hold on my Comfort Foodie site, I thought the renewal notice was for that domain. So I canceled it, effective immediately.

But what I really canceled was finkweb.org. *bOnk*

So, I frantically filled out a support ticket, thinking all the while, What if they’ve already deleted the WordPress database containing all my posts since 2008? Panic ensued. Of course, two things happened:

  1. They were Johnny On the Spot and restored everything within 5 minutes
  2. I went in and backed up my database files

So, now that that’s over, I can tell you that we like these new phones. It’s going to take a bit of getting used to them, as with any new device, but we are impressed by the clarity of the graphics and the speed of the processor (helped out by 4G, of course). Shout-out to Mark P. at Verizon for making it an easy transition — you’re the best!

Now I need to get some serious work done on my last day of Thanksgiving break. Tomorrow morning marks the all-out insane push to Christmas, and I have to be ready.

At least all of my Christmas shopping is done. Don’t hate.

:P

  1. Hi hi welcome back! I can imagine your panic! I can’ t wait to hear more about your SIII- welcome to the exclusive Sammy Club! :-)

    • We’re finding more cool stuff on it every day! I’m still trying to get used to the size (it’s pretty big and just a tad bit unwieldy at times), but I adore the interface and the SPEED!

  2. Glad you like your new phone. Sounds terrific, but I was surprised that you passed on my offer of my fabulous flip top phone! :-)
