Los Angeles. Never been there. Maybe one day.

But I’m very connected to that city … and so are you since you’re reading this. That’s where this site is hosted. Hosting in LA makes me feel very worldly and cosmopolitan.

So today, not realizing there was a big power failure in LA, I spent about 2 hours trying to figure out why my email was not working . In fact, I sent Rogers a polite yet firm note asking them about any new spam blocking initiatives that could be hampering my connection with the outside world. Well, it wasn’t Rogers and my email is not broken. I’m sorry I jumped to conclusions on that one. Sorry Rogers … it wasn’t you!

So I don’t have email at the moment but my site’s back up.

I still love my hosting company. But I think I’d be more upset if this site was revenue-generating and I was losing money by not being connected. As it stands now, I’m not even sure if I lost any readers in the melee.
