I have ran into some serious troubles this week. For starters, my UMW password expired earlier this week, locking me out of all my accounts. After getting in touch with the UMW helpdesk, and getting my passwords reset, I thought I was back on the right track. By Friday, I was good as new, until I tried to log in to my domain. Either my computer was glitching or the UMW site was, because it would not accept my new password. The same password I have been using on all the other platforms, such as canvas, banner, and email – would not work. I still haven’t been able to access the site. So as I hoped to get my weekly work done, I visited my site without logging into my domain first. OH NO! My site is gone! Taken! By something called ICANN. I followed the required steps to the best of my knowledge, and it said informed it would be back between 24 and 48 hours. It’s been 26 hours now, and it is still down. Hopefully these tech issues get resolved as quickly as possible, for my grades sake!
Even though my week has been stressful, it has been fun too. I enjoyed getting to pick out my own activity, and getting to pick which short stories to read. I read A Boy and His Dog and lets just say it was…interesting. It was definitely not boring, I recommend my classmates read it next time they have the opportunity to, it comes with a lot of emotions!
I have been reading through some of my classmates blogs and have really enjoyed Anne Armour’s posts, she seems to put a lot of personal touches and honesty in each one! I also was really interested in Mr.Morris’s post too, if you’re reading this I hope your dad heals up quick!
QOW: In the event of an apocalypse, do you think you’d be the kind of person to hoard your supplies (for yourself and your loved ones) or would you share them with those around you in need? Why or why not?
– Mostly I would hoard supplies, but in certain situations I would be likely to share as well. I would want to keep my supplies to myself and loved ones, so that we could survive for as long as possible. On the other hand though, I would lend out supplies to people who really needed them and were helpless, such as children, animals, or mothers with children. I probably wouldn’t give out supplies for people to keep, but potentially just use for a short amount of time. Though hopefully it never coms down to it!
Update: My site is back!!
