Tech Hell Day 2: Less Hell!

“Keep Calm and Carry On”

My author site is now almost kinda sorta almost operational again. You can access three out of four pages (the page with my ebooks still doesn’t load). At the time I went to bed last night only half a page was loading for everything, so this is an improvement. I still can’t access the admin area. It’s now been over 24 hours since the site went down. The techies are making progress, but from the emails I’m getting, it sounds like they’re running out of ideas.

I can’t let this get me down. I can’t spend another day thinking about having to reinstall the site software and restoring it from a backup. I can’t let this distract me from the creative things I need to do. It’s my website, but it’s not the end of the world. I’ve made a big pot of tea and now I’m going to dive into the Scrivener tutorial. I won’t need it for Camp NaNoWriMo since I’m revising a standalone novel, but I need to evaluate the trial version before my winner’s code from last year’s NaNo expires. I’m hoping it will make organizing the series material easier. 🙂 With the ongoing adventures with my website, I’m also hoping that Scrivener will be easy to use and not another version of tech hell. 😉

Keeping calm, carrying on…
