well i’ll be damned… i can access my site once again!
hard to know what exactly happened… but let’s just say i tried everything i could to unravel it… going into the router settings, including resetting it to defaults and reconfig it, to updating the firmware… to messing around with my iMac… to spending an hour on the phone with verizon and having my connection tested and have them reboot/reset it — all to no avail.
then my buddy Ron fixed it by basically moving my site over to a new server.
once he did that, i could suddenly access my site here once again…
ummm, yeah… what the fuck, right?!
