It’s a Saturday afternoon. A cool wind is blowing. I’ve spent the morning going to the bank and handling something there, buying groceries, cooking, and doing dishes. In between all that, I sit at my computer updating this, fixing that, following up here, and tracking stuff there.
In all, a most pleasant, productive, and relaxing day much needed by this CEO and SaaS inventor. Until…
I login to my company’s member service portal and…
A huge message pops up that says pretty much that this company could be a creep.
My first thought was, “Wait. We aren’t creeps. We’re nice people here.”
What they hey-hey is going on? Then I read the fine print. Our SSL certificate just has gone out of date. Did I get any kind of notice about that? No. I. Did. Not. Breathe deep. In with the good. Out with the bad. In with the good…
Okay. So, a desperate text goes out to my tech guy.
On a Saturday.
A very pretty Saturday.
Of course, five seconds after that text is sent is when I say, “Blast it. What if he’s on a little mini vacay and his phone is off?”
That’s when I knew I was going to be in front of the computer until this thing is solved and my site no longer shows creep status to my customers.
And so, as I sit here waiting for the SSL certificate to get installed on the server, I am writing this post. At least I have a very nice home-cooked soup to look forward to after this is over.
And maybe some chocolate. Yeah. Chocolate. I deserve it. It is a nice Saturday, after all.
