an itch to blog

Funny how it seems that you'll be itching to blog the moment your site's down... and the webhosting company lady has yet to reply me about an alternative payment other than paypal...

So... how & why am I here you might ask?

For someone who has been using her own scripts (read: Wordpress), it is indeed not so fun to switch servers halfway through. The one & only reason I'm here is because, I forgot to make payments for my domain renewel. How stupid a reason this might be. But no, the truth is, I really did not receive any bills notification for my hosting renewel. It was only when I tried to log into my domain did I realised that actually, my domain (and hosting) has expired. So, I emailed the webhosting lady & all, asking to make payment and everything, only to realise... paypal places a limit on my credit card sending. Seems like because I did not verify my credit card with them, so I remain largely a "unverfied" paypal customer & thus, am unable to send out money.


So I contacted the lady to ask for alternative mode of credit card payment. But till today, there's been no reply. It's either she's ignoring me or she's simply too busy these days to go on to check her mail. Whatever the reason, I'm going to wait till next week before deciding to get another host or to simply remain here on blogger. Not that blogger's bad... just that I'm used to having control over everything... including the way to blog. Good thing I recently made a backup database of my blog entries. Though they aren't all too updated.
