E is for Excellent, D is for Dork


Excellent Blog AwardLook 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.

  1. Funny! Glad you were able to unlock yourself. My husband constantly gets us locked out of our banking account because he for some reason can’t remember the password and rather than call me he goes for third times a charm each time. It never is the charm btw.

  2. First of all, the new look surprised me. I kinda like it – it will just take me time to get used to it.

    Secondly,….BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! This is JUST the sort of dorky thing my hubby would do!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Truly, K, I’m laughing WITH you, not AT you…

    1. The old design wasn’t wide enough for my taste and I didn’t have time to come up with a new design. So, I used the template from my other sites. I hope you’re not using IE 6. The threaded comments plugin moves the middle column to the bottom of the first column. Uggh!

  3. It’s funny because it’s happened to us all. Thank you for allowing us to laugh at you, and feel free to come by and laugh at me when it’s my turn.

  4. LOL everyone locks themselves out of something. I do it constantly with my sprint account. I log into it and realize that’s not the password I used. I end up having them text message me with a temp password. Total classic.

    The new look did surprise me too, and I’m not using IE. :P

  5. You don’t understand: GEEK is in. DORK is in. You rock, Daddy Forever. We’re all hoping for dork of our own (well, I am anyway)… . . . . .

  6. Ha! You don’t know how many times I have had to change my password on my checking account because I locked myself out of it. Now the password is written down in my address book.
    I did like like your old blog format. I am one of those people who shy away from change, but change is good sometimes. It did kind of surprise me, though.

  7. Congrats! You are also rate E for everyone ;) I once locked myself out of the house (before we had Anna), and I wasn’t wearing a bra. NICE. I had to go over to my neighbors “free range”, while I waited for my husband to come home and unlock the door for me. Did I mention that they were Jehova’s Witnesses? Yeah, good times.
