    ...so I didn't get much done at all today which is fairly rare....had a surprise phone call from friends of the family.....and that's about it....I did see or at least hear the rat again in the cupboard......but it surprised me by taking a new route back to it's hidden lair...so I didn't see it.....it is so fast....I don't know what it's doing in the cupboard....if it's after the plaster on the bottom shelf it's going to get plastered.....if it's after the rat sack on the top shelf...it will be dead soon....probably all I need to say...

    .m&d go away tomorrow....and I've been thinking how I'm going to spend the next three days in terms of a daily routine......I have actually been eating a few too many Easter eggs.....I know that....however its kind of unavoidable at this time......I probably won't be doing much in the garden this weekend it's pretty clear so it's a weekend off....but I know the leaves are going to drop fairly soon and a lot of them.....and I need to do one last clean up of the hedge.....planted grass seeds a couple of day's ago and have been watering those.....in about two to three weeks there should be something in an area where the top soil has been replaced by composting.....not a huge area.....but a good start...

    I just checked the whole sites down along with the NS ....so a little more going on there than I first thought.
    lipcrack 4:34p
    So I'm going to read my book.
    lipcrack 4:34p
    ....so in between things....I did mention I'm waiting for tech to get back to me....but it's fair to say at this stage.....someone's done something in the space of a night time sleep which is preventing mail being downloaded to the computer. I've also noticed in the main site control panel that some changes seem to have been made to mail. Currently couldn't say what they're doing.
    lipcrack 2:51p
    ....so had to have a quick look at things...the general mail program I use went down today....which indicates that either that service is currently out.....or someone changed some con figs in relation to the mail server it connects to.....I'm waiting to hear back.....that said though....realistically the issues to do with mail outs is coming to an end....and mail is going out to lists once again....

    In a bit of a bad mood.....mainly to do with crap that went on in the house today....mum's got the day off.......it is not even worth mentioning..
    lipcrack 11:58a
    Saw the rat again last night....once again it was in the cupboard...and did the mad dash ...so I got a better look at it this time.....but it is so fast.....
    lipcrack 11:56a
    ....I'm here.....been here for a while....will have another coffee.....and get started on the day...
    lipcrack 1:32a
    ...well that is it.....time for some sleep......goodnight.
    Wednesday, April 16th, 2014
    lipcrack 11:47p
    ...well that's it not doing anymore work today....few more pages through the book....tomorrow back to finalizing mail gear.....and for now....some time out....that's about it.
    lipcrack 4:37p
    ...and it's Easter this weekend.......so while I did have plans to put some paperwork in Friday, it's going to need to wait till next week.....along with paying out some the credit card...

    and lets not forget.....when I go off on writing tangents......I'm just throwing around thoughts....some driven from ....weridness.....some driven from fact...and some rubbish......some exploring myth....and some just entertaining...last night was a bit of that....

    Realistically now my minds on different things.....
    lipcrack 4:33p
    ....so the day is continuing......some food was put out in the shed.....I've been feeding the birds lately...who are actually just as hungry at the rat in the shed.....surprisingly.......so it's a matter of making any left over go around....that's even though dad's bought a few bags of bird seed.........

    ..and currently no issues with the mail....and it's good to already be receiving some feedback from various press organizations in terms of new contact details ....formal submissions etc....
    lipcrack 1:56p
    ...well believe it or not....mail is currently up and running. I ended up changing some configs.....I haven't heard back from them yet.....and while it is running......I still might need to change some details in regards to which IP is utilized.....(currently although not confirmed I believe one of the addresses get's the mail returns while another doesn't, but that needs to be checked)....generally though the mail out issue is resolved for the time being...which is good news to some extent....you know I haven't asked them to change anything...I've asked about the mail settings and what they're server responds to .
    lipcrack 12:27p
    ...so that's about it for now....I've emailed them back and will wait to hear ....so I'm going to get back to this book. That's it for now.
    lipcrack 12:13p
    ...so back to the same "crap" in regards to mail today with the "your having trouble" bullshit.....I haven't had any trouble....a few mail go through then it's stopped....looking into it further is telling me where the problem lies....but currently getting them to say anything more than there's a "firewall on their service which they're not going to change".....is about where it's at.
    lipcrack 11:39a
    ...I'm up.....about to get started on the day...
    lipcrack 1:23a
    ...time to finish up for the day.....it is as silent as a deadly night out there.....goodnight.....
    lipcrack 12:09a
    .....oohh....ohhhhhh.....owh....those needle pins prick me.... mad sinister laugh ......it's one of those nights.....Oh no my minds playing tricks on me.....I'm more than half awake.....I just don't want to sleep.......there's a rat outside that's looking for something to eat....better lock my door before he comes looking for me.........

    lipcrack 11:58p
    .....so m&d went to a funeral today.....and were gone most of the day and evening.....I went outside a few hours ago....noticing the luminous blueness of the moon light.....it's a full moon.....I watched as the shed door slowly opened......and the noises began.....odd ones that sound somehow out of place. I thought to myself something's going to happen tonight......I haven't fed the rat in the shed for a long time.....and I know when they get hungry they come looking for food inside. I made my way back in and locked the door. Some two hours later, just now, I head a strange noise, I thought it might have been mum making a late night toilet stop, however the rooms were dark. I turned on the lights one at a time and there in the laundry cleaning products all over the floor......it didn't take long ....a noise....then a fleeting glimpse as one made it's way along the curtain rod and down the back of the cupboard. As curious as I am went to the cupboard door and slowly opened it ....nothing......but after some time.....a noise.....I bend over to see what I can see......the rat comes scampering across the floor in a mad rat dive....under the chest of draws....sliding on the floor as it does........it was quite humorous.....cleaned up the mess put some oat meal down for it and left.....here I am.....but I might have a coffee now..... it's probably all up about 30 cms including tail long....
    lipcrack 9:05p
    You know according to checks my site is hosted in Texas but mail is Utah at the same location where it was previous......getting the picture....really fucking dubious...
    lipcrack 9:01p
    ....so now......after that's been going on ...in amongst what was a general clean up day for me including a shower.....I'm about to read this book.....
    lipcrack 8:58p
    ...so today has once again been spent on mail issues.....and mail is currently not going out. The reason is that as far as I'm aware the Mail service on the host has some kind of limit on it which is preventing any mail outs at all....which is definitely on in the guidelines of their mail out rules.....along with that....there's the issues that I've maintained regarding the NS of the mailers which according to various Network checks on line....are with different companies.....something else I've also maintained..... currently they're looking into it.....I just sent a last update in relation to the matters....in the meantime....the mail company cut off access to the mail outs that I have for 12 months.......it's a little odd.....but they have recommended a different account, I'm looking into both matters which I think will be resolved soon enough...
    lipcrack 2:47a
    ....it's time for me to get some sleep....I'm not even going to comment on tomorrow at this stage...


    goodnight.
    lipcrack 12:51a
    "Oh when are we going to here Kate Bush sing again?" ......suck a dick ......later.....
    Monday, April 14th, 2014
    lipcrack 11:15p
    ...well I've been able to establish that it's not the lists....there's a huge amount of "connection refused" errors after the first few go through the servers.....you know...95% of the list.....so I removed the ones that did go through with no errors and sent the list again....and the next few go through and then the "connection refused " error comes up.......so it's not the lists....and it's not coming from the servers at the other end.....which only leaves two parties....the hosting company or the mail program company.....and given that the mail program has some Russian developers and they're blood thirst for money at the moment....is why I haven't ruled them out......
    lipcrack 8:44p
    The third reason is there's something going on with how the mails been configured on the servers at the company it's hosted at.....and I'm not talking about the con figs I can set......fact is when I input the NS details into the mail program I get back a failed test result......which could be the mail program itself....possibly there's some interference going on from there.....it wouldn't surprise me......however I think that's a last resort. Oddly enough when I asked about canceling the account after the 12 month period, they didn't get back to me and when they didn't I checked out the account platform and cancelled it internally.....the message that came back was a little odd...seeing as it had been paid for in advance.....which is why I said (not to them)...but I'm sure it will make it's way around the grapevine.... they can shove it up their ass.


    But I have to run another test to at least determine one thing in regards to what is going on....it will probably need to wait a couple of hours in the meantime the changes to the mail server I was informed would require time to propagate.......that's the first time I've heard that....it's usually instantaneous.
