I’m not going to go into too much detail here, but having had a long chat with someone from [company] this morning, I’m hoping that this renewal situation can be sorted really soon now before anything unrecoverable happens.
I’m now desperately waiting for an email from the co.za registry to tell me that stuff has been done and that everything is (hopefully) going to be fine.
The alternative is unpretty.
You might never see this (you will, because I am backing it up and posting it on Facebook).
Long story short, I asked (and paid for) [company] to renew the domain for the blog, and my email, and my business, and my life: something they have managed to do for the past 8 years or more with no huge palava.
It turns out that they haven’t done it this year.
And so my domain is a few days from permanent deletion.
I’m hugely unhappy, but let’s cross that bridge once this is sorted. In the meantime, the blog could disappear at any mome
nt. Just kidding.
I’m still around on Facebook and Twitter. Come for the updates. Stay for the sweary rage.
