Websites Mother Fish

I found this Website which caters to artists, allowing them to have a fairly decent portfolio online. Here’s my Website: https://www.works.io/joseph-m-reyes. The layout is pretty clean and the interface is pretty easy to navigate. A lot of free sites offer a general Website or blog and people just customize it to show their works. This site has the artist in mind. The basic account is a little limited, but I guess that pushes people to either upgrade in order to display more images or just simply put their best images forward. I’m still not sure how accurate the site’s Web statistics works, like how do people find your page, especially since most of the artists on the “featured works” page, I assume, are paid accounts. There also isn’t a sort of function that allows artists to network with one another. I think that would’ve been interesting. But I guess that’s not the point of the site. Anyway, it’s a pretty interesting site with lots of what I’m guessing are European artists, https://www.works.io/. I suggest people check it out before it becomes like deviantart and get filled with too much anime.

Speaking of Websites. I’m having a bit of trouble with Godaddy and editing my Website’s mobile version. There appears to be a glitch on one of the tabs in my site. I couldn’t edit it out, so I’m chalking it to a combination of my lack of knowledge with html and the glitchy nature of the mobile version editing interface.

Yesterday was Mother’s Day. Well, it’s still Mother’s Day today in Canada. Happy Mother’s Day Ma! We miss you. Happy Mother’s Day as well to every mother out there who happens to wander to my site for whatever reason.

Why Won’t It Work? Nothing Works!

sleep

Ugh! Godaddy’s website builder is suddenly inaccessible in South Korea. I can’t write my weekly updates on¬†http://josephmreyes.com/. Grrr! What the heck is going on?

Speaking of “grrrr,” I cannot, CANNOT, stand airline companies. I love travelling, but dealing with travel companies is the worst. I just got word from Travelocity that my one leg of my flight was cancelled, so I have to change my whole flight. I called Delta and they said everything was fine. So I called Travelocity again, and they tell me that Delta was wrong and a flight to Tokyo using Korean Air was cancelled. So I have to call Delta again and figure out what’s up.

I’m ten years-old all over again, passing messages between my parents. That is, if my parents are East Indian ¬†customer service representatives.

What’s equally annoying is that I booked my flight a month ago. It was confirmed and everything, but that confirmation is worthless since one flight in a series of many flights was cancelled. And because that one flight is messed up, everything else gets thrown with it as well. I can’t replace the cancelled flight with another flight. Either I take an alternative route that they’re giving me with no charge, or get a refund and re-book a more expensive flight. Ugh!

Worse, the alternative flight they’re giving me includes a 30 minute layover in Minneapolis, one of the busiest airports in North America. Good luck making that flight!

Of course, one quick look at Travelocity’s website shows a better flight agenda with reasonable layover times. The customer service personnel didn’t even initially consider this and was pushing for me to commit to a ridiculous agenda.

And no…. no apologies from Delta, Travelocity, nor Korean Air.

I really miss home. I really miss Canada. But dammit, this whole clusterf**k and the thought of transferring through American airports and going through security have me dreading coming back home.

(BTW: I say these things out of recent frustrating events. I don’t always have bad experiences with airline companies. Once in a while I do get upgraded to business class. And once in a while, I do get very helpful assistance on the phone. It’s just that dealing with a cancelled flight is not the best way to spend my Sunday night.)
