I got all sorts of minor technical issues resolved today. Yesterday's lost website has been found. Someone just moved the DNS to a server that didn't exist. All I need to do now is point the DNS to the correct servers and the site will reappear again. I was dreading getting this problem resolved, because it involved a call to GoDaddy tech support. I'll have to give credit where credit is due however. Even though they still don't have a toll-free support line, GoDaddy tech support is much better than it was this time last year. They were courteous and surprisingly helpful.
I also figured out why the nifty little PetCam app I got for my iPhone wasn't working. It was a firewall problem. It's always a firewall problem! The firewall wasn't letting the signal from the camera watching the dogs out to the Internet so I could see it on the iPhone. I never used to have firewall problems when I had a static IP address and connected to the Internet through a DSL line. You could always put things like web servers and cameras ahead of the firewall. Now that I've switched the office to a wireless network, firewalls are a continual hassle. Firewalls just don't play nice with things like Skype, web cams or games.
Dash apparently didn't play nice with Dot out in the yard last night either. He is a lot younger than Dot and sometimes he plays too rough. Dot must have strained a muscle when she was racing around with Dash because she was limping a bit this morning. By the end of the day she was fine again, but it reminded me that she is no longer a young dog. I really wish that dogs lived longer. We have way too many little urns sitting on the coffee table already.
