Old Friend

Frazzled

I need more caffine.

I keep drifting away at work which is NOT good as I've still got the website to do this afternoon :(

Mind you, I have tomorrow off (yay!) and have groovey plans for tonight, (hopefully) tomorrow day and tomorrow evening! (douuble yay!). Of course none of these will help me in my quest for some sleep. I guess tonight is the best bet for that elusive commodity known as 'sleep' :#

Black Coffee

As many of my friends know I don't drink coffee.

....but I'll now admit....

that strong black Arabic coffee does hit the spot.

:D

Might even go for a second cup although the guys here think I'm mad. But it has certainly created a certain kind of 'buzz' within me.

Because, well, it's today

Ask me four questions.
Any four, no matter how personal, private or random.
I have to answer them honestly. I have to answer them all.
In turn, post this message in your own journal and
you have to answer the questions that are asked of you.

(Edit: Please note that I may take 'The Fifth' in extreme cases but will only use it as a last resort:)

Work

Today at work has been a bit of a headache.... there's been loads to do and then our ISP decided to be problematic. Well, to be honest it wasn't 'OUR' ISP which was the whole problem, it was a combination of our current ISP and the one we used up until early 2004. When all of the data was transferred over apparently not 'all' of the data was. Thus the people that look after domain names still had our 'old' ISP listed and sent them renewal information which, as we were no longer there customer, they didn't bother chasing up. Thus sometime late this morning our website was taken off-air.

Now this was a bit of a mini-crisis for us as the (considerable) majority of our business is now done on-line PLUS Tuesdays is our New Releases update when loads of people check in on us to see what's coming out during the week and decide to spend their hard earnt money with our good selves.

The problems are now resolved (we hope) and won't occur again. But it wasn't very nice for a while, especially when I've been surviving today on hardly any sleep. The strong coffee certainly helped but I think I'm going to have to hit the anadin soon anyway.

This evening I'm off out again, but it won't be a late one. I need to get some sleep this evening.
