Technology - it's great when it works!

The weekend was great, but took up a LOT of my time. Then I was exhausted and useless for most of Monday, and I've had to do quite a bit of running around over the week too. In between, I've been working my butt off, catching up on client emails and programs.

After composing several lengthy messages and spending ages creating some fancy attachments, I discover yesterday that Hotmail (the most paranoid email provider in the universe) has decided to reject Every. Single. One. Of. My. Freaking. Messages. Gah!!

Apparently it's just having a hissy fit and doesn't want to accept anything from my ISP - which, by the way, is a long-established and perfectly respectable internet and email provider. I tried removing attachments and re-sending. Nope. Taking out images. Nope. Using my personal email account. Nope, nope.

After banging my head repeatedly on the desk and sobbing a bit - it was after 11:00pm by this stage - I remembered my old GMail account. But could I recall my login and password? Uh.....

This morning, I suddenly remembered the login details and got into GMail, to discover 523 junk email messages waiting for me. I kid you not.

I think this actually might work. Meanwhile, my ISP better sort this crap out - I have rather a lot of clients and newsletter subscribers who use Hotmail, and this is very inconvenient.

Looks like I'm going to have a busy day......

The newsletter I got from you only had the left hand side of the page. Everything on the right and in the middle was invisible.
