All morning I struggled in Outlook with my change-over to another provider address. Addresses. And I tried to incorporate my domain addresses at the same time under “Rules and Alerts”. Five different addresses. I had it, and then I didn’t. It worked, and then it didn’t. Finally, I had my three Eaglecom.net addresses working, but I decided I didn’t want to use them. Eaglecom.net, at some point, will sell to someone else then I’ll have to change my address again.
So, I did what I should have done two providers ago when found myself in this dilemma: I’m going to use my domain name address. I can use it as long as I have Metapros as my website and blog host. Or, as long as I’m able to turn on my computer. I’m a slow learner. Duh!
Actually, the transition was not all that difficult. I’ve gone through it many times. I called Brad at Metapros for some help before I got myself in a real mess. He’s such a nice guy, provides wonderful service and HE is ALWAYS there to answer the phone. Like the Maytag man, he’s always there to help me. I can just envision his slight smile as he carefully explains, once again, how “this” works. I talk to him about every two years.
So, my new address is the same as on my website and blog: prairie_at_kansasprairie_dot_net. Now, take out all the underlines (_) and change the “at” to @ and the “dot” to “.” and you have it. You all know by now why I don’t write it out like you must have it to use it in an email address. My return address on the mail I send still has the eaglecom.net return. Under the circumstance, I can’t seem to change that.
Eaglecom is going to do some kind of change over starting at midnight tomorrow. They should have it finished by the time the sun comes up Wednesday morning. I received the notice AFTER I decided today was a good day to make the Outlook changes on my computer otherwise I would have waited a few days. I’m still showing up as a classicnet subscriber on my website statistics. That should change soon.
Drew came by tonight before leaving for the weekend to visit his roommate. That required “cowboy” attire. I suspect there are some women that need to be impressed. He looked so handsome, but Brit didn’t even recognize him. His roommates and K-State are having an influence on Drew. That’s okay. It’s a good influence and he’s spreading his wings.
Brit went to Salina today to see his podiatrist. He ran one errand for me and headed home as it was 107 degrees. There was no reason for me to go outside today.
Remember to vote for Sandy Praeger and Donna Viola.
Kansas Rino reflects my feelings about the election tomorrow in today’s post:
“I’ve been surfing for hours trying to come up with an idea for a piece about tomorrow’s primary election. I really have nothing to say.
“Looking at the news sites, it’s hard to tell there’s even an election going on. This is the slowest, dullest, most uneventful election cycle in my memory. The candidates all suck. There aren’t any issues of substance being discussed. I can’t even remember the names of guys who are running for Congress in the Third District.
“It will be a record low turnout election. In the GOP, low turnout usually means a conservative sweep. I hope this year is different because I’d like to see the moderates regain control of the State Board of Education. However, I’m not particularly optimistic. Fortunately, it looks like Sally Cauble is going to beat Connie Morris out in Western Kansas. If the conservatives hold the SBOE, I’d be happy if I could at least be nice see Crazy Connie get beat.”
Please go vote tomorrow.
