Yet Another Test

Please, dear readers, if you can read this, be patient while we deal with these amazing and baffling technical difficulties, such as post dates all becoming Dec. 31, 1969. That is a new and interesting twist.

I really think that computers are somewhat self-aware and they have wicked senses of humor.

Else, there really are gremlins.

  1. You’ve done a great job so far.
    You’ll fight the rest. 🙂

    I am looking forward to reading your essays at the new blog 😉

  2. I’m not sure that ‘great job’ is accurate, but I’m getting there. I just promised Barbara that I wouldn’t lose it all … as long as that doesn’t happen (and I’ve got about 3 backups of the blog) we’re golden. Well, fool’s golden, anyway.

  3. Looks good to me. I’ve been able to read off and on over the last few days, so I’d say you’re doing well.

  4. Of course, there are gremlins!! Feed them chocolate – the good stuff (they know the difference) and they will purr contentedly long enough for you to get past them and get the blog moved:)

  5. Good advice, Maureen! I should have thought of the chocolate trick!

    You see, I am whatchacall an “end user.” I am not really a technophobe, per se, but neither do I know diddly about how the internet works, how the blog sofware does, nor do I really know how to code. (I can memorize bits and pieces of code and insert them where they go, and I can look at a line of html and if I have a correct version to look at, I can see what has gone awry and fix it. This is not the same as understanding how html works.)

    As far as I am concerned, the Internet is run by little ethergnomes who run about and make it all work. I suspect that I should leave more offerings to them as well as to their counterparts, the gremlins, and maybe the blog will be back up to speed in no time.

    (Barbara wanders away, seeking chocolate and calling sotto voce to the ethergnomes and gremlins.)

    Thanks, Ardene! Glad you could read it now and again. For a while, it was really looking strange, and poor Zak nearly pulled out all of his hair trying to figure out why.

  6. Barbara, Vijay moved my blog from blogger to wordpress few months ago. If you like, Vijay would love to help out, send us an email.

  7. Indira–thank you and thank Vijay for us. Zak tells me that he has nearly gotten it together and that all he is waiting for is Blogger (which had technical difficulties yesterday, apparently–gee, hrm, maybe that was part of the issue) to publish the first three months of the blog so he can transfer those files over.

    None of this makes any sense to me, but he seems to have a much better handle on it now that he has finally eaten today. I am sure tomorrow, after a good night’s sleep and proper nutrition, he will be fine.

    At least, I like to think so.

  8. Yes, there are gremlins all over the place. I’ve had some recent problems with them myself. Though for the life of me I can’t remember what that problem was now… oh yes, hiding my parking pass from me. There was something else though… hm…
