Not that I care, but a DNS issue, even when corrected, could take some 12 hours before being propagated to the entire world. Usually though, it is a couple of hours worth.
For the twittaholic, it could still be a serious issue :wink:

This is the social disease of our times. The few times I set up clients, I more and more often experience people being almost desperate to get updated or to update their own status with whatever uninteresting information…

It is hard to see this social-injected disease on the computer, but it started with the cell phone. Within a few years, it became expected that we brought it with us wherever we went. You can easily check if you are infected here… If you send a text message to someone and get irritated if you have not gotten a reply withing half an hour, you are infected.
It is a human right to choose oneself unavailable without reasoning, deal with it and do something else…

I will try to explain it to you.
When I am with a customer, I do not lift the phone out of the pocket and I notice that the customer get stressed by the fact… I have already evaluated the physical person to be the most important and so I can not pick the phone out of the pocket. If I do, I will immediately start evaluating if I should answer and hence go against my first evaluation.

Regain control, do not become slaves to technology…

Xercus, you hit it right on the head! How did we ever live before Social Networking? Imagine having to phone 300 or 400 people to tell them what you had for lunch, or that you had to flush the toilet twice.

Like you, my phone stays firmly pocketed when I’m with a client, I’ve not enabled data on my phone and if not for having to send or receive the occaisional text would happily still be using my 8 year old flip phone.
