On The Home Stretch . . .

I spent the morning putting the finishing touches on the new website. Once I have it working I have to move onto the domain where it will reside. Then I have to go in and redirect everything to the new URL.

Finally, I’ll install the SSL certificate onto the domain name so the credit card usage will be secure. Hopefully I’ll be able to wrap everything wrap before I go to bed tonight, though it might not all be working until the DNS stuff gets upgraded.

I mentioned yesterday that I was having trouble with the shopping cart problem sending out the order emails. Turns out it wasn’t the program but Gmail. Because I was doing so much testing with a lot of the emails coming in, Gmail decided that they were SPAM and was sending them straight to the Trash. But a filter fixed that.

So I’m on the home stretch, I guess.

Around 1pm, Jan and I headed out for lunch, but also to drop our truck off at Mike’s Auto Repair. Since it was only about 3 miles I was hoping that I would be able to get there without it overheating. So I topped off the radiator, filled up 4 gallon jugs with water just in case, and headed out with Jan following me in the Tucson. I did leave the radiator cap off so that the radiator wouldn’t pressurize and force the coolant out quicker. And it worked, since the engine temp had only come up the normal range by the time I got there.

After dropping it off, Jan and I drove over to Texas City to have lunch at Yummy Yummy Chinese Buffet, and I was even more impressed than last time.

Not only are they cheaper than East Star up in Webster, but they have stuff on their lunch menu that East Star only has on their more expensive dinner/weekend menu.

And everything is hot and fresh because they have a lady wearing a headset walking up and down the aisles, and when she sees something that needs replacing, she requests if from the kitchen and then a couple of minutes later another girl comes out pushing a cart with the food on it.


Coming home we stopped off at the Super/Cuts next to the WalMart so Jan could get her hair cut. So I took the opportunity to duck over to the nearby WalMart/Murphy station to fill up . . . at $1.96 this time. It get’s cheaper every time.


Tomorrow hopefully I’ll have everything back online and I can move on to other problems.
