It Was Godaddy’s Fault . . .

I think.

After my client’s email problems last night, I was up early since I figured I’d would have to go in this morning, but it turns out it was all working OK and all the missing emails had shown up.

After I got home last night I began to wonder if the problem was not with our email server, but with the domain name itself which is hosted on Godaddy. When an email comes in, it gets fed through Godaddy and then down to our server. The fact that some emails were coming through after a long delay, and some not at all, led me to believe it wasn’t us. So hopefully it’ll settle down for now.

I’m still trying to figure out how the rain gauge is supposed to work on my new La Crosse Weather Station.

LaCrosse Weather Station

Yesterday morning about 5am it poured down rain for about 45 minutes so when I got up about 9 and checked the display, I was surprised to see that it hadn’t recorded even .01 of an inch. So when when I got home from work last night I brought it inside and removed and replaced the batteries, and then put it under a drip in the sink.

And in about 30 minutes it was reading 3.65 inches, so I guess it was working now, and I set it aside. But then when I happened to look at the display a little later, about 7:30, It was showing 0.00 again.

Now weather stations I’ve worked with in the past, at TV stations and NASA, monitored the rain on a 24 hr. basis and would reset at midnight, so I’m not sure what this one is doing. Just something else to look into, I guess.

About 5pm, Jan and I headed over toward I-45 to try out a Vietnamese place in the area called Phở 20. We were looking for a local restaurant to replace the Asian Grill in Conroe and Little V’s in Katy. It had 4.4 stars on Google so we had high hopes.

We started off with an order of Pork Spring Rolls, good with a really good peanut sauce, though not quite as good as Little V’s. But good enough that I forgot to get a photo.

Next up, I had a bowl of Miso Soup,

very, very good, while Jan got their Crunch Salad with Tempura Crunchies.

Also very good.

For our entrée, Jan got the Chicken Vermicelli Bowl,

while I got the Beef, Chicken, and Shrimp Vermicelli Bowl.

Everything was really good, and we’ll certainly go back.

The owner waited on us, and we enjoyed talking to him and his wife. Very nice people.

Since we had had spring rolls and soup/salad to start, we both had leftovers from our entrées, and as we were getting into the truck, the owner’s wife came running out with a big order of Fried Rice to take home with us. Very nice.

Tomorrow it’s back to work, and then dinner with friends at Jimmy Changa’s tomorrow night. Really looking forward to it.

The Word of the Day is:  Ebullient

Thought for the Day: 

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten,  every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” – George Orwell, “1984”

    Greg, there is a row of buttons on the top back side of the color display. Press the rain button to toggle from 1 hour, 24 hour, all the way up to 1 year as well as total. That should fix your problem.

      I’ve had one other person mention this problem, and they were using an iPad or iPhone.

      So are you using an iPad or iPhone?

      But then I have other readers who are using them with no problems. Have you tried another browser besides Safari?

    A while back I read in someone’s blog about screens for motorhome windshields.  They were attached by magnets.  Was that you?  I have lost the website.
