    The GAME has come BACK to Web De-sign Foooooooooorumssssssss...

    Okay, for those of you who may have wondered (all 2 of you) where I was for the past few months, it is a long and unusual tale consisting of some soap-opera-like elements, including:
    • a lawsuit (I'm the plaintiff)
    • the renovation of the upstairs of the house I live in, which was abandoned for non-rent payment by the upstairs tenants
    • a 12-week fight with the telephone company over my external lines, which has greatly affected my DSL speed (go Bell)
    • the starting up of a second company, ADAM IT Pros (see signature)
    • the training of a "new" old abandoned dog, that was left behind (see attachment). I call her Fluffy the Wonder Poodle.
    • and about sixty zillion other things that had to take up my time.

    Anyway, if you want to hear the stories, and you probably don't, then you can reply to this thread and I'll try sharing some of them.

    5? What, do I have to cut back now? Damned Alanon.

    Actually, the new company just started. I just finished the website yesterday (stalling on doing a quick admin for it today) and I'm going to be promoting it over the next few weeks.

    And here's the scenario, in a brief nutshell:

    I was renting a basement apartment in a house. Last year, I found out I was subletting and my "landlady" owed the owner (my new landlord) a big chunk of money. I found this out during a major peak period in my business, and rather than risk interruption, I paid off a chunk of the debt. The same thing happened a couple of more times with hydro and gas, and it got to the point where I had to sue her to get the money back. I won the case, but I'm still waiting to collect on the judgement.

    I ended up taking over the tenancy for the whole house when the "landlady" refused to pay the owner the rest of what she owed him and he booted her out. It's also how I got the dog (she abandoned the dog when she left, along with most of her stuff). So that's how I got Fluffy.

    Bell (the telephone company)? Well...that's a nasty story all by itself. They've gotten the intelligent idea to reroute my entire phone line without prior warning in January, thereby putting me out of the range required for DSL service. They've only just put me back in range yesterday (4.5 km...for you Yanks, that's approx. 14,500 feet). And it's still slow. So I've still got some of the fight left to go through. And I need to do this so that I can get another DSL provider, since all the equipment is leased through Bell and it's an external issue that I have.

    Thank you, phone company.

    Anyway, that's the short version. The long version is actually more twisted and bizarre.
