When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

Can you see those special characters (   , ’) on my blog??  Well, I still don’t know how on earth they landed on every post I have here. It all happened after I upgraded to wordpress 2.2!  I’ve been asking support from BlueHost. Twenty hours has passed and still, no word from them! Aghh! Patience, patience…Two hours ago, I received an email from their support center, asking me to provide them the last 4 digits of my credit card I used to create my account.  How would I know if it’s a legitimate request? What I couldn’t understand is, why do they have to ask for my credit card when I have given them my password for my BlueHost’s control panel?? I wrote them again regarding this matter, to verify if it’s a valid request … BlueHost – “mum”, “sleeping”???

Let’s be careful about giving out informations especially regarding our credit cards. There are a lot of phishing  attempts going around the net. I repeat, attention!!!

Luckily, GoogleBot  came in to my rescue giving me some important links about upgrading wordpress. I don’t know him personally but he was kind enough to give me a hand. Thank you GoogleBot!

I’m still working on this “enigma” by browsing different forums with similar problem, disactivating my plugins, etc

Please bear with me…just ignore those               , okay?

I’m hanging in here BlueHost!!


I’m going to sleep now, wishing tomorrow a miracle will happen!    

 Since I’m still waiting for my web host’s support to my predicament and I’m supporting  the  trouble of editing all my posts by deleting those special characters…I’m sharing some>>>>
