Christmas is over!

Christmas and the holidays are almost over! They are fun, but what a relief to get things back to normal. Tomorrow we are going to see the new Star Trek movie. I saw the funniest post about it… someone said it “sucks and blows at the same time” hehehe… should be interesting!

I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year’s! And I hope I can stay awake until midnight, lol…

Christmas is near…
So what has happend in the recent past that I have not written about?

I have became a great-uncle, if there is such a thing. My niece gave birth to baby boy last wednesday.
We have been buying x-mas presents and wrapping them. The best thing is that I know what I’m getting :), I can’t wait!

My parents just called and told me that they finally got broadband! about time I say.

Can’t decide on the design of the site…. I wish I could do some flash cuz that would really make it look cool.

Should I have the news on the frontpage or not? Maybe I’ll just ask for opinions in the forum.

I guess I should go over all the trips and turns with this site…..

I used to own the domain wardavenue.com that was hosted with freehostingweb.com (FHW)… bad move!!! FHW has no support whatsoever They registerd my old domain name wardavenue.com with dotregistrar.com.

A few weeks ago the problems begun..
I could not reach my domain at all… mail would not work… and so on. I wrote to FHW’s support – no answer.
Suddenly my domain compleatly dissapeared and when you typed it in to the browser you got forwarded to dotregistrar.com.
After numerous tryes to contact FHW I gave up.. bought some space at hostdime.com and was going to move my domain there.

I went with godaddy.com for transferring my domain.

After the transfer was initiated it came to my knowledge that all the registrar info has to accurate, mine was not. My mail addy changed ftom mediaone to attbi because AT&T bought up mediaone. The only ones who could change that was FHW thru dotregistrar.com and since FHW did not answer my support requests I just gave up and registerd this domain toopicky.com.

All this confusion was handeld very well by hostdime.com and the initial contact that I had with their exellent support thru tickets and AOL IM was first rate!
I can only say one thing thing.. If you ever need webspace with good features and exellent support go with the guys I host with hostdime.com.

Jenny is coming home for Christmas again this year… only staying 6 days, but better than nothing! I will have seen her 3 times this year then… not bad for a 2000 mile difference! Can’t wait! :)))

This moring I got cut off atleast 5 times four of those by a tiny compact cars on my way to the office, don’t they know that if I’d collide with them it would feel like a speedbump to and they would be crushed to pancake?

You know, it would be nice of MS to relese the XP sp1 soon… and of Xandros to release its LINUX. I’m just hoping that my newly bought 802.11 card is supported under LINUX.

Been playingCounterstrike all night and getting slaughterd by 10 year old punks who have nothing better to do than to play CS all day long… humiliating.

It has been a busy few weeks!

I finally got some photos up on the roadrtrip site though only a fraction of them total of over 800 pictures and movie clips… sorting thru them is a pain in the posteria.

Babs leg is healing up after a rough vacation… hives+allergies.

+ It’s been awfully hot and humid lately.. and rainy. We just broke a record with over 3 inches of rain in one day! About 8 gallons of water in our basement πŸ™

Oh well…. more on this later.
