After some searching around I discovered that the registrar for my domain SearchBC.com has gone out of business, my domain was then magically transferred to somebody called JetHost.ca, they then magically went out of business or something and then my domain ended up with TUCOWS?
After some emailing and confusion I finally tracked down the registrar of lost domains, they created an account that I could login into and once again control some ownership of my domain. Since I didn't want this happening again I found another (much larger and reliable) Canadian registrar WebNames.ca and moved my domain business to them.
Today is the first day in months where 24bloom.com is back online and linking to this blog.
There is a Santa Claus !!!

Now, I have to wait till Halloween for the premier of The Walking Dead on AMC. If your not a fan The Walking Dead is a fantastic comic book series from Robert Kirkman. It follows the lives of a bunch of survivors of the zombie apocalypse. The main character Rick is a small-town sheriff who is injured in the line of duty and wakes up in the hospital a few weeks later to discover an entirely different world, everyone is gone, the dead walk the streets, and his wife and son are missing?
It's been a very popular comic series for about 7 years now and when AMC picked it up for a TV series fans like me went wild! The Walking Dead is extremely well written and it's much more of a character driven story than a zombie gore fest, although the zombies keep the adrenaline pumping. Watch this first look trailer for a sneak peak of AMC's next big series!
It's the start of the labour day long weekend and the term "labour" is appropriate this year. I've been working on some large projects at work and the final blitz is scheduled for this weekend as the other employees at tekmar leave the building for three days. Now I get the opportunity to turn off some major services like email and migrate services from the old servers onto new ones. Come Monday or Tuesday everything should be up and running again, and a few more older servers will be retired.
Do I mind missing the long weekend? Yes, and no... Yes every break at home is good and appreciated, but the planning for this migration has been a long time coming, and I'm really looking forward to getting it completed.
