Boat Car Guy

I mentioned this scene in an earlier post this year and have just gotten around to making this clip. I’m using this under Fair Use as an illustration of a point of discussion.

I believe that our experiences in this life are influenced greatly by how we choose to interpret them. Much like the cat in the box which is both alive and dead at the same time, we worry over the day to day struggles of our lives as if the act of worrying them will influence the reality inside the box. Truly our worrying won’t help our problems any more than it will help the cat, but the way we choose to respond to the reality once it is known will greatly influence the end result.

The “Boat Car Guy” speaks metaphorically about his perception of the world around him and the way he chooses to interact with it. I like his perspective and use it here as an example of spiritual openness and how our perception can influence our destiny.

The reboot

On July 30th 2014 I attempted to contact my hosting provider for assistance with an outbound email problem.  The problem was that for nearly the entire week previous (July 20th), no email from Loux.ORG had been delivered to any recipient.  Inbound mail was working as expected, but outbound was not.  When I attempted to contact the hosting provider, I started with a phone call and waiting about 10 minutes before resorting to web-chat.  The web-chat was also full but said someone would be with me in 20 minutes and started a count-down.

The count-down ran for the entire 20 minutes, then sat at 1minute remaining for approximately 60 more minutes.  I abandoned that effort and went back to the phone.  After another 10 minutes on the phone, I pointed my browser to a new (and local) hosting provider to begin the process of transferring Loux.ORG to their services.  Before another 20 minutes went by, this new provider had helped me choose which services I wanted, got them paid for with many discounts, threw in an additional domain, and had the service transfer IN progress.  The DNS switch-over took a few hours, but here we are.

This is the reboot of ‘This child’s life” with the new hosting provider, GoDaddy Inc.


Thanks Bob!
