Our new internet service was installed today. All the family computers are up and running, it seems fast. So far so good. I go to set up my email account. I spent ten frustrating minutes at the ISP website before giving up and calling customer service to find out what I need to do to set up sub-accounts. I was informed that, as of yet, email accounts (and password changes!) have to be called in to the support center - there is nowhere to do this for myself online. Huh? What century is this? Okay, fine. I shook off my mini-snit and got my email set up. I can live without changing my password very often. No problem.

We're going to cancel our old service in a few days, so I decided to change my email address for BookCrossing. I got everything entered and saved, sent myself a test PM, and waited for the nifty little sound bite from Monty Python to sound, informing me that there's a message.

I waited...

and waited...

Nothing. Nada. No PM, no duplicate (Yes, I'm weird - I sent myself a duplicate of my test PM - go ahead and laugh). So I sent another. Same thing. What the ? I went back to BC and changed my email back. Sent another message which went through with no problem. Changed the BC address to a free account I have and did the same test with no problems. Forwarded the PM from free account to new account. Mail arrives, but the BC link image has been blanked out as a "dangerous image". Oh geez...

So I sent an email to support letting them know that I tend to visit Bookcrossing on a regular basis (I hear my fellow addicts giggling at that mild description of how often I'm at BC) and that I regularly receive messages from the site, which messages I would like to be able to receive at my paid email address instead of having to go check a second account where I'll have to put up with banners and pop-ups. (Yeah, yeah, yeah, poor baby, I know - it's sooo hard to check another email account, but I really think I should have a chance to get all of my mail at the address I'm paying for.)

The support email says they will respond within 24 hours.

Guess I'll go read.

It's been a blah sort of day today. Did a mountainload of laundry, took the ornaments off the tree - my guys will take the tree down tonight and then my furniture can get back to my regular configuration. Yes! No more neck aches from trying to watch a movie sideways.

I'm still fighting the headache that I've had since Thursday. I'm pretty tired of it, but like a bad guest, it refuses to leave.

I did manage to get to the post office today to mail out a couple of books. I also made it to the goodwill store to drop off several bags of clothes, electronics and toys that needed to leave our house.

My last errand for the day was at the vacuum cleaner store. My vacuum odyssey )

Hubby and our elder son are in said son's room installing a cd burner on his computer. Our younger son is playing video games in his room. I think I'll order pizza for dinner and curl up with my book for the rest of the evening.

Oh! I almost forgot - the Kings won! Woohoo! It was an ugly, nail-biter of a game, but we'll take it. :-)
