A funny thing happened yesterday on the way to Open Salon. IT OPENED!
Now that might not seem like a big deal for some, but for me it was a huge deal. You see, for the past two months I had fallen into the sad habit of trying to access Open Salon once each day. Each day I would struggle to get the site to open only to be greeted with…at one point or another…the dreaded LOTS OF ERRORS sign. Once I got that sign, I would move on to another wonderful site started by a long-time Open member, Lorraine. Once there I would post my blog with no problems at all.
But…on Saturday…Open Salon opened for me in a flash. I was shocked but still not convinced so I began to navigate within the site, from blog to blog and sure enough, each blog opened like clockwork.
I was still not completely convinced so I decided to try the absolute acid-test. I tried to open my mail. Since the trouble began this was one function that never worked and always ended up giving me the Errors page. It opened like a charm!!
So I quickly posted my latest blog entry from Our Salon and was even able to read the few comments I got.
Does this mean that Open Salon is back? I certainly hope so, it has been a long couple of months. There have been volumes written by me and friends of mine about what an unholy mess this site has been in and we were right….it was royally screwed up, but if it is finally back then kudos to whoever fixed the damn thing because this is home and home always feels better when it works, ya know.
I hope this lasts. I want it to last and I want to post my blogs here….fingers crossed.
I doubt if he will ever read this, but I just want to say “Thank you” to our Editor, Jake Sugarman. I’m not thanking him for fixing the problem because I am sure it was those pesky IT guys we never see that did that. What I would like to thank Jake for was his having the balls to post updates and try to keep the rest of us informed. He took a lot of heat from a lot of angry people and he took it with aplomb that I would never have had. Thank you Jake.
Now…..let’s see if it’s going to let me post this thing.
