Once upon a time in a land just behind your computer monitor lived a sharp-toothed villain known as IPOWERWEB.
IPOWERWEB made its home under the Internet on page one million of a Google domain hosting search:
IPOWERWEB was a cheeky villain. It wasn’t enough for IPOWERWEB to brag they were the leading eBusiness Website Hosting provider, no. In fact IPOWER, Inc., The Power Behind eBusiness™ bragged they were one of the world’s leading eBusiness Website hosting providers. The world.
But IPOWERWEB didn’t stop there. They also laid claim to other abilities, such as Domain Registration, Windows Hosting, Bossy should have known because what is Windows Hosting? and Dedicated Server facilities.
IPOWERWEB’s goal was to dominate business enterprises by helping them build, promote, and manage an online presence utilizing IPOWERWEB’s ½ a Petabyte of storage. Which by the way is approximately a gazillian Petabytes shy of enough.
And so it came to pass that one day in 1945 Bossy wandered into her family room with wet feet and registered a domain name—i am bossy—with IPOWERWEB.
But back to IPOWERWEB—who just moments before Christmas decided to change their platform.
But i am bossy didn’t work on the new platform and it sputtered and died. Killed by IPOWERWEB. And then
Bossy forgot she had a blog The End just when all hope was lost, Is This Still A Bed Time Story Or Not? Bossy Forgets, Go Daddy swooped in to save the day.
The moral of the story: if your domain name is currently being hosted by IPOWERWEB, consider switching over to a different domain host, like Go Daddy. Bossy doesn’t care if she did convince friends to use IPOWERWEB just a few short months ago (Bossy’s friend Wendy: we’re looking at you.)
Or if you don’t switch hosts, at least know that IPOWERWEB consists of very nice people, many of whom may someday soon give birth to a few of Bossy’s husband’s kids, but they seem unable to handle anything complex. Such as the difficult task of routing iambossy.typepad.com visitors to iambossy.com. Because that’s as hard as pushing one whole button.
Second moral of the story: if you right now look up in the web address section of this blog and see that you are logged on to iambossy.typepad.com, or are linking to iambossy.typepad.com from your site, or are in any way associating typepad with anything iambossy, for gah’s sake please take the time to change your bookmark and links to iambossy.com. Without the TypePad.
Because it is a very thin New Year’s Eve Eve thread, and Bossy is barely holding on with drunken fingers.
