If you're on my mailing list, you got an email from me over the weekend describing the uninvited sleeping guests I discovered in my Panama City Beach hotel room bed. If you missed it... here's what I wrote:
Okay, I'm supposed to be on vacation. Nothing major, just a few days at the beach - change of scenery, some beach air, work on my tan.
Went to bed last night, couldn't sleep... yada yada yada - the bed is infested with bedbugs. In case you've never had the privilege of sleeping with bedbugs, they're like fleas - they bite but you don't feel them on you. You just wonder why you're so itchy. Yeah, it's as fun as it sounds.
The hotel put me in another room, but I didn't sleep much. And I'm grumpy. Just thought you'd like to know. Thanks for listening.
But the reason for the weekend email to my entire mailing list wasn't to share my unfortunate tale of bedbug woe - no, it was to apologize for a major systems problem that apparently happened right about the same time I was flipping back the covers on my bug-infested bed. To continue...
Actually, the real reason I'm writing to you today is to let you know that there's a serious problem in SellwithSoulLand - If you have purchased a SWS product that includes multiple products and/or audios (e.g. The Savvy Prospector, The SWS School for Rookies, the Summer of Soul, The SOI Seduction Starter Kit), you may not be able to access the product. I don't know what's going on yet, but the program that I use to deliver the large files is apparently gone. POOF! I don't know if they're upgrading their site or were kidnapped by aliens or hacked by teenagers, but in any case, they didn't show up for work today.
Please bear with us as we figure out 1) what's happening and 2) what to do about it. I'm really sorry about this. And I'm s'posed to be on vacation!
You have no idea how freaked out I was about losing all these files stored online. I had visions of my customers cursing at their computers (and at me) all weekend because they couldn't listen to their Summer of Soul Teleseminars or tune into their Savvy Prospector Audio Lesson of the day.
But you know what? I got an outpouring of supportive emails in response to my note assuring me that there was no need to panic, that I should just enjoy my vacation and not to worry about some little ol' computer glitch. And of course, lots of advice to "make sure I didn't bring any of the bedbug critters home with me in my suitcase." (Fingers crossed I didn't.)
Anyway, all my files have been re-uploaded to a new system and everything is running smoothly again, so the crisis has passed. But I wanted to thank all my friends who persuaded me NOT to panic and to ENJOY my vacation in spite of Bedbugs & Broken Links...
