So, here we go again.

Everything from the last month is gone because Go Daddy and I don't speak the same language. I asked them 3 weeks ago to fix the problem. They said okay, log in and do this thing. I thought I did said thing. Then it died again and took all of the data for the last month away. I said "but why?" They said, because you didn't do the thing right. Ummm okay. Don't worry I fixed it so it won't happen again. Why didn't they do that last time? .......

They swore this won't happen again. I'm not holding my breath.

I noticed a couple issues today with the domain. One of them isn't too big of a deal, although cumbersome. The other is definitely not optimal.

I can't speak to anybody else, but I had a bunch of trouble loading "ohioqbforum.net" via Safari on my phone. Didn't have the issue loading "ohioqbforum.net" on the laptop, though. Was able to load "http://www.ohioqbforum.net" on both devices.

The second issue: if you type "ohioqbforum" into the search bar of any major search engine (Google, Bing etc), the first result has the link (ohioqbforum.net) posted with the heading "The Ohio Quizbowl Forum - ohioqbforum.net". But, it instead leads visitors who click on the link to a questionable website for some purported online pharmaceutical clearinghouse, one chocked full of male enhancement products.

My guess is GoDaddy will need to get that fixed.

I have spent about an hour today waiting on hold and talking to Go Daddy today, so this issue is going to be future Joshua's problem. Heck with that guy.

I'll call tomorrow.
