Rather Stubborn Idiot

Sadly, that didn’t turn out to be the case. It was double the trouble.

The plan was to work on the essay for school, starting at 2 PM. That went as planned, and all was cool, but in the end it took a bit long to finish. Why? I had taken the job of doing the styling on me, so the final process was mine to complete. The styling itself didn’t take much longer than expected, but the fact that I spread that workload out over the entire day wasn’t exactly helping.

I have a valid reason for doing that though. One of our clients’ sites got hacked. They changed a few entries in the database. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem, but then their rather shitty hosting provider started bitching about how our account was “infected” and all that stuff, even though it was quite apparent it really wasn’t that bad. After some emails back and forth the only remaining option turned out to be to reset the entire site to zero, and build it up from there.

Luckily we have a backup laying around from early September this year, so the damage done isn’t that bad. It’s in the process of restoring right now, so all is well with the world.

To make matters worse, I can’t really afford to chill out on the internet ’till real late today either, because I have to get up at six tomorrow. We have two project weeks at school, and we have to be there pretty much all fucking day. Being there at half to nine means I have to get up at six, since I want to leave the house at seven, to catch my train at quarter past seven.

Such is the home-living student’s life I guess.

    Ouch that’s going to suck. But it’s a better reason than falling sick or being stuck in traffic for several hours.

    Well it sucks you didn’t get much free time because of circumstances but maybe you’ll get some free time over the weekend or something. Sucks about the site hack too but you were able to fix it up.
