    It snowed last night and this morning - travelling to work was fun took ages longer than usual - only had 1" here but it caused chaos - why is it that many places in the world manage to survive and even thrive on masses more snow than we have but hee everthing stops for even the tiniest amount? Strange - not the day to go out in short skirt and high heels - unfortunately - more of a day to curl up in front of the fire and drink some warming beverage and relax with a good weepy book.

    Today Eric is monitoring the server with some Linux thing called TOP, which means nothing to me.  If things start to turn turtle, it should give him an idea as to what the problem is. I've been busy working on the new Trannyweb navigation system.  We already have so too many features to pack into our main menu at the top of each page and with the addition of this blogger, TrannySurveys and Jabber coming soon, we really need a new way to navigate through the site. So I've bought and am now setting up a new DHTML drop-down menu system.  I've also identified some new bugs, introduced by the software upgrade, which I've passed on to Eric.  One of which is the fact that our birthday script doesn't work!

    Well another day at work over - still lots to do. Don't know when I will be able to dress again - you know this could become very depressing - come on Tina buck up - things are never as bad as they seem. Updated my website and emailed everyone who has signed my guestbook to tell them of the update and received some very nice and very complimentary replies - perhaps i am doing something right. That's all at the moment  - will write more later

    Yesterday was a very frustrating day with the server going down about four times, once for about two hours.  The Canadians are off till nine o'clock on Monday morning (that's 3pm here) so I can't get any help from them. The hosting company want to charge me $150 an hour to look at the server logs for me.  As I don't have that kind of money, I've taken to reading my huge Linux tome to try to figure out how to look at the logs myself. Today (Sunday), I've managed to look at some of the logs but I haven't a clue what anything in them means.  I think I've also deleted the contents of the most important log, Spooler, by mistake 'coz I don't know what I'm doing.  AAAAAaaaaaaaggghhhh!!!  Stop the web, I want to get off!!!!! I think I've also discovered a new bug which disables members accounts if they make any changes to their profiles and then emails me to say that they requested an upgrade but didn't pay!  That's the kind of thing you'd expect a nasty virus to do! There appear to be loads of other bugs too, which are going to make my life difficult over the next few days.  Because the Canadions have rolled out this new software upgrade to all of their other customers too, they must be inundated with angry emails about all the bugs.  They obviously don't have time to mess about with our problems. If we were not so heavily immersed in their software, I think I might start to look for another software company.  The Canadians have always been friendly but they are a very, very small outfit and don't seem to have enough staff to cope when something like this happens.  So very many of the technical problems we've had at Trannyweb have been because of buggy software - we must be getting a poor reputation for reliability around the web. Some of it must be down to me too.  I'm not a proper programmer - just an amateur who bitten off more than she can chew.  I didn't get into this thing to be a computer boffin.  I just wanted to be a girl and run a community for like-minded people. It's at times like this when I think of chucking it all in and putting the site up for sale, not that anyone would want to buy it with all these technical issues. 1303 on Sunday afternoon - I struggle on...

    Well managed to spens a fw hours dressed this evening. Nothing special dressed and then sat around watched TV and then went on tranny web. Met some old friends and had a good chat. It was nice to be able to dress for a change. Unfotunately it was not for very long but beggers can't be choosers. A very enjoyable evening even if I didn't go out apart from nipping out to put the car in the garage - how risky can u get Took some pics which will be on my site as soon as I get chance to set up the pages. Added a new pic to my TrannyPix album - Jan 04 for anyone who wants to look - I think I look good in that one - for a change. Ah well time for bed perhaps I'll get the chance to go out soon.

    Today has mostly been an accounts day while I wait for various people to come back to me with news of the server problem, which caused it to fall over every seven or eight hours. Eric, our programmer in Canada, seems to think it's a network problem at the hosting company and not caused by anything he's done.  However, he does admit that the timing of the problem's emergence does point the finger at him, as he was working on the server at the time. The hosting company, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, are investigating. Meanwhile, I've identified some problems with the new Birthday script which has just been installed.  It's supposed to send each of our members a birthday greeting.  Eric has just sorted the probs out though.  He's also looking at fixing the lack of images in the blogger - it seems the wrong image folder was specified in the blogger config settings.  I'm hoping to unveil Trannyblogger in the next day or so. Last night I interviewed Andrea Hillaire, who runs Stormes Transgender Nightclub, for The Tranny Tribune, so she will be our celebrity interviewee in the next issue.  Stephanie Ann Lloyd, who started Transformation, has also agreed to appear. I need to find some well known tranny icons / celebs from outside the UK though.  Trannyweb is supposed to be an international organisation but I feel that it's been very British recently.  All suggestions for celebrity interviewees will be greatly appreciated. That's my day so far - how exciting!
