I am cursed. I can only go to the control panel but I cannot view the main page of my site. I have been trying to all day. With talking to tech support and what not. I swear. It’s like the website is jinksed. I am pretty calm and I really didn’t care too much if my site is down or not. But the whole day? Now that’s too much. I am loosing money from Google adsense here.. I mean I am loosing fans.. I mean I am loosing spam.. I mean I am loosing loyal commentators.. So hmm.. it’s because I am on holidays and I am bored out of my mind. I have the blog as an entertainment and place to rant.. I have to rant. Today is a perfect day to rant. My site has been down! Aahh.. Should I switch hosting? Naah. I am too lazy.. and I like the features of my hosting plan.. but I want my site back! Why doesn’t my main page load? I am getting people emailing me and popping messages on msn saying where is your blog? Hell if I know.. Disappeared to the internet black hole. Who cares really. But you got to admit.. I had a blast with the tech support. I saved one conversation (live chat)..
This short conversation took 00:11:59 minutes!
So 12 minutes of my time is not so bad. I had a previous one that lasted an hour of me waiting with no results… but this one is funny..

I don’t get why this is taking too long.. Is the problem from my side? Because I cannot access any file in the root directory of my site.
