an entire weekend of thinks to do

Perhaps I’ll post something more interesting during the week. :)

- scrub garden floor with bleach water
- scrub garden wall with bleach water
- paint garden wall if weather permits
- perhaps hang a second clothes line
- finish unpacking my office
- finish unpacking the library
- get art up in library & office
- finish ch 3 of RAVEN CALLS
- find a vet or pet store to get food for zilli
- laundry. fuckloads and fuckloads of laundry

…is it just me, or does “give us your server root logins” seem like an odd response from a web host when I provide them with an IP and domain from which I’m getting hammered with spam? I mean, shit, I can drop in an .htaccess IP-blocker on my own site if I have to, but I’d think a host would want to be blacklisting that IP system wide. And yeah, I know, IPs cover a world of territory and not everybody coming from that IP might be evil, but still, WTF?

Also, having spent the last 90 minutes scrubbing the garden wall, I think I can safely say it looked better before I started. :)

eta: somebody who knew his ass from a hole in the ground responded in a more constructive manner when I wrote back to say WTF.

we accomplished huge amounts this weekend. the garden floor hasn’t actually been scrubbed, but a lot of it’s been doused with bleach water, and about all i can do now is hope it doesn’t rain so cruft can be scraped & swept up tomorrow. ted’s finished unpacking/clearing up most of the library, and we’ve put a dent in the laundry. i have not touched my office, but perhaps i can do that during the week. things are proceeding apace!
