It seems these Mercury-themed problems will never end. I’m still in the process of trying to restore data after my computer crashed. My wrecked car is supposed to be fixed next week. It was promised on October 4-5th so I’m not holding my breath!
I know that people can’t post in the forum…I don’t know how to fix this at the moment. I’ve hired someone to rebuild the site. It was targeted to be done, end of October. I know he was working on this last night. I guess he must have nicked a wire? In whatever case, I hope he can fix it soon. Worse cast scenario, the new site should be ready soon.
I used to get real upset about this stuff but I no longer do. With the constant changes and “updates”, I think I’d be best off to just commit to rebuild every couple of years. In my yesterday’s mind, I thought that the internet was a cooperative place. I know think that was naive. It’s brutally competitive out there.
I’m not talking about astrology – my niche. I’m talking about the back end of the site. Everyone is trying to make a living, I guess. While some things are designed to play well together, you can imagine that motives exist, to allow one plugin to come out on top, causing the other one to die. If you initially chose the plugin destined to die – too bad, so sad!
I use woo commerce on the site. Truly, I’ve had nothing but problems with it. But WordPress bought woo commerce this year…I’m thinking this has got to be good. They’ll want their two products to work well together, right? No benefit has manifested to date. I don’t know why.
I do feel confident the new site will work the way it’s supposed to. I will probably get my car fixed and I might even get all my data restored. However, I expect this to be slow like a snail.
This may seem like a tangent but I think it’s related. Recently I bought some warm slippers. I wear a size 9. They offer size 7-8 or size 9-10. What the hell is this? One slipper is clearly too small…I bought the other and my feet swim in them. I’m so pissed. How come we can no longer buy slippers made in our size?
My husband said it’s because these are the people’s slippers. They’re socialist slippers. Make some crap for the common people – you get what you get, the fit good enough!
I think he’s right. Pluto in Capricorn.
In whatever case, a person has to live in the world they live in; in the society they are part of. So that’s what I’m doing. I really don’t see this turning around, do you?
But I do think I can keep this site alive for another ten years. This is my intention.
