Maybe Yes, Maybe No

I spent another three hours on the phone with Go Daddy yesterday, the first hour just trying to get to someone who actually cared about helping me. But I think it was worth the wait because eventually I was connected to a young man named David Pozos. I explained all of the problems I had been having and David spent two hours with me going over every detail of the website. He identified several issues that may be contributing to the different problems, and hopefully we resolved some (or better yet) all of them.

One of the biggest problems is the Adobe Flash popup. A careful search of all of the elements of the blog showed the only thing asking for Flash was the Google AdSense ad on the sidebar, so he suggested removing it. At one time Google ads were a significant income source for us, but over time they have dribbled down to nothing so I had no problem zapping that ad. David said it could take up to 24 hours for all caches to be cleared at different internet service providers, so did that solve the problem? Maybe yes, maybe no. We will have to wait and see.

I still have quite a few things to tweak based upon my notes from David, but I am waiting to talk to Greg White first, before I jump in, unsupervised, and make a mess of everything.

My plan was to spend the day writing, but that was pretty much shot. I did some research and made some notes for the new book, answered a lot of emails, and then had to run my friend Jim Lewis down to our local mechanic to pick up his car, which was in for service. Back home, I surfed the internet for a while, and then it was time for supper and an evening of TV watching with my best girl. We have been binge watching the new season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime, and I think we only have one of two more episodes to go.

It’s Thursday, so it’s time for a new Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of my friend Ken Rossignol’s Pirate Trials: Famous Murderous Pirates. To enter, all you have to do is click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening.

    I have been getting the flash player popup for three days. Late in the day (I ususally view in the morning when I getup) I tryed again, not fixed, I was hoping. But then I tried again and after your page came up I clicked the X burton to stop and more loading, and no flash player appeared. It is not fixed still happening. (Using Goggle chrome).
