  1. You consider quitting.  This technical stuff is not for you.
  2. You scream and yell at everyone around you, because all you want to do is blog and you can’t, and no one understands why you can’t just do something else.
  3. You try to do something else, and then attempt to blog about what you just did, but remember that your blog is broken.
  4. You repeat steps 1-3.
  5. You decide you needed a day off anyway, and go shovel snow.  Your arms now hurt, but you can’t tell anyone because your blog isn’t working.
  6. You email tech support for the 9th time, only to get the same answer: you need to wait for the internet to “propagate itself again”.  Whatever that means.
  7. You design a new header, hoping that propagating happens quickly, because you know that everyone has been holding their breath waiting for your next poignant post.
  8. You repeat steps 1-3 again.
  9. You think of all the things you want to blog about.  But you forget to write them down because you’re too busy trying to figure out how to propagate yourself because it’s taking too long.
  10. You cry and then go to bed early hoping that it’s not still broken in the morning.

As you can see, the internet has apparently propagated.  I still don’t know what that means, but I have my blog back.

I honestly reacted like someone told me they were going to amputate my left arm.  Funny how a blog becomes a part of a person.

By the way, what do you think of the new header?
