Streamyx International link down again

I seriously don’t know what’s happening with Streamyx nowadays. Last week’s connection was slow. Today, I can’t even surf international sites. The problem actually started since last night but it was not so severe yet. I can’t manage my domain DNS, can’t use MSN..I CAN’t EVEN OPEN GMAIL @[email protected]$%353 523$%@ Sigh When will this end????? After 2020 ?


Streamyx Sucks

Because I couldn’t get into international sites, I stumbled onto a lot of good local blogs. I was reading AhYap’s blog just now. I totally agree to his tagline. ” Better than reading newspaper” . A definately must visit site… but be aware, this site is made for people with “big hearts” only.

Domain transfered

I received a confirmation earlier as my domain urbanreality.net has successfully been transfered to TUCOWS . As I expected, my website was down for 3 hours. They did not help me update my DNS to my previous one but replaced them with ipower’s DNS instead.

So, I tried to login to my domain management page but kept getting error that says my user/pass is invalid. I had no choice but to get customer support. I guess it’s either they have limited staff or they just have too many customers to attend to that I waited for nearly 45 minutes. I was attended by this guy called Winston. He was able to solve my problem in just minutes. He just reseted the password and resend the account details to me.

After login into the domain management, the first thing I did was to change all the DNS to my hosting. I thought it would take 12 hours or more to have the DNS updated. It took only 20 minutes instead and I was able to access my site again. Gee… that was quick!  

Transfer of domain registrar

My domain domain will be expiring in a month time but already got a reminder from my registrar. I was worried that I might forget to renew my domain. So I made a domain transfer order from my current registrar to another registrar since it’s much more cheaper. I’m expecting the transfer to be done in the next 7 days from now. Till then I would expect my site to be down for 1–2 days as the DNS update would take some time.

3 more papers to go

Finally down to 3 papers. I guess I can graduate this may. HOPEFULLY! I don’t wanna stay in TARC any longer. I just wanna get that darn cert and move on wih my life. Had enough with study. I’m not exactly those type of people who really like studying. I don’t know why. Maybe I’m just lazy.

Seriously, I haven’t thought of what I’m going to do after I graduate. I wonder what can I do. If I can graduate after this semester, then I’ll probably have 3 qualification other than my SPM qualification. Hmmm… let me see. I have completed a management short course, got a Certificate of E-Commerce from NCC, UK, and hopefully a Diploma in Marketing & E-Commerce from TARC.

The problem is… I’m not really interested in Marketing. Well, E-Commerce is just part of my interest. I always wanted to start my own E-Business but don’t know where to start. There’s just too many things to consider. Actually, my main interest is IT. In fact, I’m sort of an IT enthusiast. I used to be a computer technician and trainer for thoses students who came to my ex-company to do their industrial training.

Sarcastically, I believe I’m the only PC Technical Support Centre that works 24/7 and doesn’t get paid. I have people calling me even in the middle of the night just because their computer broke down or their modem doesn’t dial. Geez… come on. Give me a break will ya ? I have a life and I need to sleep too. I wouldn’t mind helping but at least let me sleep in peace before I put all my energy to work for free. If it’s for charity, I guess I won’t mind. But taking me for granted is something that I can’t tolerate. In fact, who would tolerate that ?

Sheeeshh… I’ve got a bigger problem now. It’s already 5:47am in the morning. This is the second night I stayed up till so “early”. I’ve been trying to figure out what has gone wrong with my forum. What could be wrong that caused all the links in the forum can’t be accessed at all. I guess I screwed up big time.

All because I wanted to fix a small error on my forum, which at the end caused more problem to come one after another. I deleted some stuffs from the database manually and I didn’t bother to look at it. That’s so dumb! I know. Well, I thought problem solved. Who knows when things start to get worst. At first all the forums, topics and post were missing. Fine ! I replaced the initial codes and things seems to be fine. Then I tried to click on the links in my forum. DAMN it! Only blank pages.

Till now, I couldn’t find any solution to the problem. I have no choice but to close down the forum for now. I have to wait till Friday cos I’m going back to Seremban. I can’t do anything here cos the 3G connection here sucks ! I’ll have to troubleshoot every single file and match it with the initial one. Without a good connection, I can’t download all my files from my server.

Sigh… I’m off to sleep. I still need to go to college tomorrow.
