Look Out Kansas!

I’m headed your way soon! If you want to hear about and join in a fast paced and spirited conversation about libraries, gadgets, mobile technology and general library information access and future services, you are hereby invited to attend. I guess you could come from anywhere in the world to see the sessions, but I’m betting you’ll mostly be from Kansas if you come. Maybe a little Missouri? ;) Regardless, hope to see you there! Please swing by and say hi if you are there!

Thank You Friends. Forget You, Bad Host!

A huge thank you to the folks who spend their time, thought and energy to read this blog. I try to make it a bit fun, a bit interesting , a bit unique and totally worth your time. I truly appreciate that you come here for content during your busy day. So it makes me concerned, then sad and finally mad when my hosting service messes things up and my site goes down.

After two major server failures and days of misleading, thinly veiled false promises and inaction called action by a company called iPowerWeb, I have moved the hosting of this site to another company. Or rather, I have worked with my kind and generous friend, Kris Bell, to get the site moved over. It wasn’t fun. It took work and a big hunk of time that neither of us had. And we are both disappointed with iPowerWeb. I appreciate the times when they provided reliable uptime. Those days ended however and their customer support, while there, did nothing but poo poo the fact that libraryman.com went down during two critical times for me professionally. Shame on you iPowerWeb!

With that, I make lemonade from the lemons they foisted on me (and you), I thank my amazing friend and colleague Kris Bell for his hard work on short notice, I also really want to thank you, dear Libraryland readers, for sticking around during the outages. Now, I take my sweet, sweet visual revenge:

The Good Dark Side

Misleading Customer Service Kills Your Business

btw, it is 11:25pm. I am still at work because I needed to start working on this the second I was done with my “work work” to avoid more down time. Shame on you, iPowerWeb. You should refund my money and buy me the crappy drive through tacos I have to go get for dinner. Pfffft!

See You Around, Kurt Vonnegut.
