You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone

As Joni Mitchell so aptly sang. I almost lost Beautiful Railway Bridge due to forgetting the renewal date for the domain. Then, when I thought the payment had gone through, those bastards at Barclays blocked the card payment because it was international. Welcome to the global economy, chaps!

So today, after being notified by email, followed immediately by a phone call from their fraud prevention unit, I was off on a roller coaster of rage, anxiety, and much profanity. It involved a long phone call to exotic India, and back again, before the card was unblocked and I could make the payment. Don’t even want to think about what that call cost.

My blood pressure is settling down a bit now. Having suffered so much, it would be stupid not to start posting again.
