SITTING up in bed drinking coffee and checking emails…but they ain’t coming in.
I suspect it’s because the hosting folks have migrated all my websites to their new cloud server which means the email server names etc will have changed.
On the laptop I login to my account and check the support ticket I raised and sure enough, there’s a message confirming all’s been updated and with all the new server info. That was quick! I check all the website’s I host with the hosting company and they’re all good. Phew!
I just starting to update the email; client on my laptop when the phone rings…it’s the web host support folks to check all’s OK and I have the info I need. Now that’s pretty damn good service and support – especially as the move to upgraded server platform and PHP updates have all been free. I’m seriously impressed.
There’s a few domains and quite a lot of email accounts involved, so it takes a good while to update things on both our MacBooks and iPhones but worth the effort as it’s also cleared up a few email anomalies that I couldn’t solve and we just had to live with in the past.
After much to-ing and fro-ing via email and on the phone, we agree on a deal to move next week’s York show from Fibbers to The Woolpack.
That brings up a load of work – we need to update our US pals Swampcandy who’re playing the gig (and Newcastle) with me, create new Facebook cover images for my page and profile, amend the landing page on my website, change the event on Facebook and the related image, change the Facebook ad that;s running to promote the show.
Then there’s poster art to email down to the new venue, online versions of the poster art to spread about and various other social media announcements.
It’s after 5pm when I finally get out for a walk and clear my head.
Two hours and a couple of podcasts later I get home in time to tidy up and head along to Betty and Joe’s for dinner – we’re joining them, Barbara and Thorsten and (another!) Dave and Margaret.
A great night 🙂
