Yesterday and today I worked with my IT support teams. I have IT support from HostGator for this site and IT support from Verizon for my high-speed Internet.
HostGator is the host for this site and I also get my URL through HostGator. HostGator is also the host for several video porn sites which means that the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction will not be shut down for adult content as it was twice before because I was a new webmaster and didn’t know what the hell I was doing. But I soldiered on (even though I lost about four years of content) and HostGator has assured me that my precious Pittsburgh Flash Fiction is as safe as if it was a baby in its mother’s arms.
So, yesterday I phoned HostGator and asked two questions. What was the difference between this site’s data base and its files and did HostGator backup both? The difference was explained and yes HostGator did.
Then today I phoned my Verizon IT support team and to make a long story short I completed confirming the security suite I downloaded several days ago and finally set up my online Verizon account. But to actually set up my account properly took about three hours. The IT support representative actually had to take control of my computer and the two of us worked through everything that had to be done. Like when I downloaded the security suite Verizon became my homepage and I didn’t want Verizon to be my homepage. Stuff like that. A lot of stuff like that. As I said it took around three hours to set everything up to my satisfaction. But we did it.
So now the Old Soldier can forget about the technical stuff for a while and get back to editing, blogging and publishing.
Hello, all my brother and sister readers and writers of erotic flash fiction! The Old Soldier hasn’t even been outside today. (The magazine has taken up all my time. You know with the technical stuff and then coming up with new content to post. This is my second post for the day.) But that’s okay. It’s an overcast day anyway. After I post this I’ll puttering around the apartment, read some more of On the Road and then listen to the Pirates baseball game on the radio. I’ll take up my favorite position: flat on my back on the sofa with two pillows under my weary head and pen and notebook close by. The game will relax me and allow my mind to wander at the same time.
Don’t forget that later this week I’ll publish an erotic story of domination and submission by Donya Patrock. Donya lives in Pittsburgh and this will be Donya’s debut publication for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction. You don’t want to miss it.

This is the Old Soldier reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction, a different kind of online magazine for adults.
