Well that was like a first for me! 

I feel so...so... violated! 

Marcel ping me on Skype and asked if the site was down. I had not idea cause I was out and about... taking a nap... and when I awoke from my sleepy slumber I noticed the site was INDEED down! 

HOLY WAXED BALLS BATMAN! 

So, I immediately (after I located the number via Google knows all website) for the support line for the hosting company and gave them a friendly jingle. 

The support guy answered the phone and I said, like really nicely, 'WTF! My site is down! I want a free month! You promised 99.9 uptime you f'ing morons! GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK!"

But I said it all in a REALLY nice yell! Seriously... I used my nice yell voice. 

Anyway, come to find out the data center where the site is hosted was under a DDOS attack! I asked if they needed backup. I and the Mustang could be at the data center post haste, guns a-blazing! (Virtual guns...like a BFG from DOOM or something...). They declined but promised to keep me informed of their progress in dealing with the online vigilantes who had caused me and Marcel so much grief! 

So... it looks like the site is back. Douchebags dealt with. Hope the NSA beats them with a wet hose.

Later - I have to go and finish mowing the lawn... LOL... na... I have to go and eat steak. Man need meat who build website’s! 

Later - Digital

Well... I was just informed! I have received my 11th concurrent Microsoft MVP award!

I would like to thank The Microsoft Academy Awards (hey... this is my speech) for the HONOR of being able to represent them over the past year.

So, I was considering taking the day off as I have had enough of my car be wreaked by things I have no control over.

Pretty basic stuff (AV, Firewall on, etc...) but at the same time this might be something you send to the grandparents or friends who might not be as tech savvy as you are!

These are my top three tips for shopping Cyber Monday:

1 - Never EVER use your ATM Card! Even though your bank will probably reimburse you, that might take a while and that cash will be held until it's all cleared up.
