Look at what Jenny (Chased by Angels) and Dawn (Baby Addiction) gave me…the Excellent Blog Award. Aren’t they nice? I’m fairly certain they actually meant to give me the Dork Award, which I deserve for I locking myself out of my own server over the weekend.
Apparently, if you enter the wrong password too many times, the firewall locks out the offending IP address. In this case, my IP address. I couldn’t load any of my sites in the browser, receive/send email, or log into my server. Did you know that if you can’t log into the server, you can’t unlock yourself? And since it was my server, there wasn’t anyone I could call to unblock my IP address. I had to use an old computer at my parents house to log into my server and unblock my IP address. I’m such a dork sometimes. Reminds me of the time I locked myself out of the house…on the day I was suppose to offer a dowry to the outlaws for Mommy Forever.
