Some of you have asked what was the condition my blog between about 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. on Sunday, November 20, Eastern Standard Time, which is who knows when where you are.
I saw this DNS page when I got up:
I emailed the provider at some point early that morning, but then I was in church for several hours, and I didn’t get home until 2 p.m. Around 11:30 a.m., I had received a message that the blog was fixed, but I couldn’t see it, literally.
Briefly, though, I could actually access an altered version of my blog – no pics – long enough to actually copy the text of my current post and throw it on my Times Union blog.
Soon, even that ability went away, and I got first:
Error 520 Ray ID: 304f0526d2f8220a • 2016-11-20 21:33:25 UTC
Web server is returning an unknown error
Then back to the weird ad shots.
When you’re IN the situation, you don’t always record the situation, and afterward, one may not wish to revisit it. Fortunately, the wise and wonderful Dustbury explains it rather fully HERE, and note my comment there as well.
OBVIOUSLY, I need to post the song Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In). It was [listen to all] , written by Mickey Newbury, “recorded… by Teddy Hill & the Southern Soul, [covered by] Jerry Lee Lewis… and a hit for Kenny Rogers and the First Edition.”
One thought on “See what condition my condition was in”
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah.
The Mickey Newbury original was so non-Nashville I sometimes think Taylor Swift was listening to it when she came up with “I Knew You Were Trouble.” (RCA wasn’t happy with it either, so they didn’t put up much resistance when Newbury tried to get out of his contract and move to the more pliable Mercury label.) And plenty of latter-day fans of “The Gambler” and such, upon hearing the First Edition disc, stare in disbelief: “That’s Kenny Rogers?”
