The Powweb Saga Continues

So, yeah-- after the last two emails, I'd kinda lost hope of a coherent reply... but decided to try one last time.

I just tried sending this through your online support form, and it seems
that as of today, responses now go to the main billing email address
on file. Please reply to this address.

The first support case (40723951000195b56262) is closed, the second
(40723951000196278794) isn't even listed. The responses I've received,
while prompt, haven't offered any sort of understandable information
whatsoever, and the problem has not been resolved.

Please give me a simple update of the current status of this problem--
in complete English sentences-- and tell me what has been done, what
will be done, and/or what needs to be done by me to make it work.

This is a business site, and will have to be taken elsewhere if this
cannot be resolved quickly.


And they replied! They replied! They... replied in something almost resembling a complete English sentence (with just a touch of Winston A. for panache!):

Hello Carolyne,


a response later this afternoon and we apologize again for the delay.

OK, I'm supposed to be on a plane to Tennessee tomorrow morning after I give a 20-minute teleseminar on nutraceuticals by phone (the content of which hasn't actually been written-- or even fully determined-- yet). Oh, and I have to write a newsletter before I leave. In my sleep.

Maybe I should go!

Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who don't run away quickly enough :)

I bet it's even bigger in person

So we're kinda watching Metropolis 2000: Scenes from New York (again) during dinner. Zack, as usual, is lusting over Petrucci's red pearlburst seven-string.

Zack: "Wait-- look, look-- there's a part up here where John Petrucci's guitar is just so... so... [insert drooling noises here]. Wait, here it comes-- oohh-- look at that! Isn't that HAWT?!!"

Paul: "You know, this John Petrucci thing is going a bit far. I'm a little concerned. I'm going to have to get him a Hooter's calendar and put it in his room or something. 'Ooh, John Petrucci. Ooh, look how BIG his guitar is, ooh, 24 frets-- it's sooo LONG, ooh, I just want to touch it.""


Zack: "I wonder what it'd look like with a strap on."

I'm SO glad I didn't have a mouth full of food at that point.

I love my family, oh yes I do.

As a side note, this marks the first time I've said "I'm so blogging this."

Random music meme

I've been forced to do this by neenerface (who was forced by bornofdivinity)

1. Total amount of music files on your computer?

6.33 gigs. Maybe half are from CDs I can't be bothered to get up and grab during the course of a day.

2. The last cd you bought was...

I... can't remember! I'll say War of the Worlds, which I got Paul for his birthday.

3. What was the last song you listened to before reading this message?

Finally Free, from Metropolis 2000: Scenes from New York (on DVD)

4. Write down five songs you often listen to or mean a lot to you.

How the heck am I supposed to limit it to five?!
I guess I'll just be eclectic :)

Dream Theater - Overture 1928
Pat Metheny - Secret Story (the entire album)
Weird Al - Angry White Boy Polka
Thomas Dolby - Nuvogue
Bela Fleck & the Flecktones - Shanti

5. What new music are you really excited for in the coming year so far?

All of it :)

6. What 6 people are you going to pass this baton to and why?

gefiltebitch because she's saladgasmic
newbabel because I wanna know
alcestis because she's got kinky, kinky, kinky boots
horseofshadows because he needs/deserves a distraction (look! shiny!)
mentalguy because maybe a meme will bring him back
mtffm because he's jewel-questy.
