Spent most of the day yesterday updating my email address for everything and everyone I have done business with or had contact with for the last decade.
I seen it comin'. My former ISP folded a couple of months ago, but claimed they were going to maintain the mail server. Looks like it didn't happen.

That's a major pain in the butt. We changed from Comcast to Verizon last year and I went through that for SO and myself. I wish I'd been smart enough to switch to an email that wasn't connected to my internet provider.

I've had my own domain name since 1996, so I've had the same email address since then. When I've had to change providers, I just point it to the new one.

It is that, Andy.
I always preferred to deal with a local ISP. But, times are tough everywhere, and it turns out, the guy who was in charge at my former ISP has gotten in trouble over some kind of tax issue. I reckon Centurylink will be around awhile so maybe I will be good for a spell.
Frankly, I hope I don't live long enough to have to go through this again.
Next time, I will just shuffle along my merry way and let everyone wonder what happened to me.

I blend it half-and-half with unscented litter now and our kitty still is OK with it. No urine accidents since I started using it years ago, but on occasion she doesn't quite make it to the pan for solids. She's probably getting a little old (shelter cat, so they weren't really sure how old she was when we adopted her). Also, if you want to get the smell out of anything I can also highly endorse "Nature's Miracle" Urine Destroyer. They have a formula specifically for cats. It works. Good luck...and don't kill kitty, OK?
Thank you. We're pretty certain it's the cat litter since it started the day we switched to a new litter. The one we'd been using was discontinued. I'll check out those products. If it keeps him happy...

I have had my own domain for years. I use it for biz. I use Gmail for social. My biz email forwards to Gmail.

We use The World's Best cat litter and it is awesome at odor control without all of the perfume. Friends have accused me of not having a cat, just a litter box to make them feel bad about theirs, our box is on the main level in the 1/2 bath and you never smell anything, even when the 30 days is coming up, yeah I only change it once a month!

Fussy little furkids, aren't they? But what keeps kitty happy and using the pan keeps mommy happy too. Good luck!
