No, I am not talking about that talent show. I am talking about the X factor, the real X. Something that is unexplainable but happens.
So it started on Tuesday afternoon when my cousin (who is also the webmaster) told me that the BETA version of our client’s website was ready and she asked the email access to the hosting provider so she could upload the file.
Just to be clear she was the one who created it and reconfirmed the hosting and domain payment but she forgot. None of us didn’t have any record about the access, which was out of ordinary. We always keep a record of all our client’s accounts (emails, access n password) before we hand it over. Somehow for this account everybody was lost. We even thought that we had put the wrong email address. If that happened, then someone else would get all the information of the domain and hosting. Oh NO!
That entire afternoon we texted back and forth about where to find it and how we had to go about it. But because we really didn’t have any idea, the only way was to email the provider to ask about the access and asked their help to solve this issue. Luckily I still had the payment receipt with me so at least it could prove that our question was valid and we were not a fraud.
After dropping K to school for his extracurricular class I went to one of the fast food outlet, ordered a drink and composed the email. Strangely every time I tried to send the connection went down. I couldn’t successfully send it until my laptop battery dropped. I thought I would try it again as soon as I got home because there was no electricity outlet to plug my laptop charger.
Once home I tried to recharge my laptop battery. Somehow it couldn’t recharge. I picked up J from work and we went to iPlug, the local Apple authorized outlet. When the staff tried to recharge, it worked.
Soon after my cousin texted me that she had found the access details and that we didn’t have to email the provider anymore.
Isn’t it funny how the X factor saves your from more trouble? Had I successfully sent the email, the provider would probably create more inquiry on this and oh I just can’t imagine the hassle.
By putting down my connection every time I tried to send the email and not letting my laptop being recharged, God was actually telling me “don’t send it! The access will be found soon!”.
Have you ever had similar experience? I am still amazed!
