MY website issues are really starting to piss me off…it’s kinda like the hosting folks don’t actually listen to the issues and I’m sick of going round in circles.
The whole things is compounded but the fact that the new single drops on Friday, I have new Wildcats’ merch with a deadline and no-one can order…and I have a huge workload and deadlines this week.
Margaret’s out all day and asked me to put out a reminder to members of the local community trust that Stirling council is running two online public consultation meetings today regarding closure of a local primary school.
The video transcription I finished yesterday needs another run through for checking. I wasn’t aware it was going straight to subtitles/SRT file without any of my notes/queries etc being addressed!
I’m ‘attending’ one of the online meetings about the school – the 1pm slot – so make an early lunch. After the weekend’s pizza fails I wanted to get back on my game with a bit of the dough that was left over. Ironically it turns out to be one of the best I’ve made!
I finish eating just in time for the meeting.
Despite having finished the medals I was commissioned to design/produce for this weekend’s running event I get a request for an additional, personalised medal. They were due to be picked up today, but they asked if it can me switched to tomorrow (Wednesday).
Back in the studio I return to the transcription which is fast becoming a pain. Not in itself, but just the setbacks combined with all the other hassles.
Late afternoon the rain’s gone off. I haven’t had a walk or any real exercise for nearly a week so down tools and go out for a walk as darkness falls.
When I get back Margaret’s home with the shopping and put it all away!
I spend the next hour or so on a call to my web hosting company’s support team to try and sort out the website dilemma once-and-for-all. I seem to make some headway but we’ll see. Fuck, I’m willing to pay to get this sorted out and I’m still going round in circles.
Dinner’s ready when I get back to the house then I spend another couple of hours on video transcriptions before bed.
