Well after trying to figure out the hoops I needed to jump through to prove I owned martianrock.com (my address had changed, my service provider who’s e-mail I had listed had gone away and I couldn’t find my NetworkSolutions password which was being mailed to the e-mail address I had listed) I finally decided to pick up the phone. Wouldn’t you know it only took a few seconds to verify with a live tech support who I was and to get everything in working order. The do it yourself process still has a long way to go in replacing over the phone, live tech support. I must say the NetworkSolutions guy I talked to was very helpful and curtious even if he kept trying to sell me on their hosting services.
For those who don’t know what martianrock.com is, it was my old domain that housed my consulting company’s web site and then later my blog. I still have the DBA for Martian Rock Interactive. Right now j5live.com and martianrock.com both point to the same place. I kept the old domain for identity reasons. I think google still brings it up on searches and well some people still know my e-mail address (though it has been down for months now). In any case it is a part of me and my history that I would be hard pressed to part with.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]
