Funny Email Conversation

Sep 4 2007

Filed under: Life,Rant,Webmaster

Today, I had a very funny email conversation that I felt obliged to share with you. The conversation was with a man named Steve who was transferring four domains to me.

If you are not familiar with the process of transferring domains, I will elaborate. It really is a very simple process:

1. You ask your current registrar to unlock the domain, and to send you the authorization codes.
2. When you go to your new registrar and try to transfer the domain, it asks for your authorization codes. You type in the Authorization code, and the transfer begins.
3. Most Domain registrars require one final step, and that is a confirmation email. Your new registrar sends the admin contact for the domain an email saying: “Are you sure you want to transfer this domain?”

So to put it simply:

1. Get Authorization Code
2. Use Authorization Code and begin transfer.
3. Answer Confirmation Email saying that you would like to transfer your domain.

I’ve already transferred a number of domains from Steve last month, and about a week ago, he emailed me saying that I still had 8 domains to transfer.

I emailed him and asked for the authentication codes, and he sent them. Then I started the domain transfer, and my registrar emailed him the confirmation emails.

I emailed him after a couple of days and said:

Thank you for these authentication codes. I requested the transfer for these four. Did you receive the Four Confirmation email yet?

Apparently that was too complicated and he responded with:

I sent you what I got. Which 4 are you talking about?

… Was my email that complicated? Maybe it was, so I tried to make it as simple as possible:

Hi Steve,

Yes, you sent me the four authentication codes. Thank you for that.

I requested the four domains to be transferred. When I do that, it sends an email to the admin contact (you) to confirm the transfer. The email should be titled: “Transfer of *DOMAIN*.com” or whatever the name of the domain is. Have you received any emails that start with ‘Transfer’ in the last 2 weeks or so?

Thanks for your help,
Ashton Sanders

This is what I got back:

Okay, here you go… I hope these are the ones. I already sent them Friday at 8/31/2007 1:02 PM. Did you not get that email?

Attached: Four Domain Authentication Codes

Wow! It would make it much easier if you would read my emails. When I write something in an email, I write it so you can read it and have a better understanding of what I need. To make it as simple as possible, I contacted my domain registrar and had them send the confirmation email again. I withheld my aggravation as best I could, and emailed him back saying:

Hi Steve,

I just had my domain registrar send the confirmation email again.

The only domain we actually need is:

You should be getting that email soon,
Ashton Sanders

I guess that was too complicated… as he never responded.

Web Comic

Filed under: Humor

A friend showed this to me about a year ago, and I stumbled upon it, and must admit. The author of this comic is very very funny. He’s got a degree in Physics and he is well versed with Internet Lingo.

Current Favorite Comic:
#1 Programmer Excuse for Legitimately Slacking Off
