Lemmings Make Mistakes?!

When “they” tell you to be sure you make a back up before making changes you better be sure you made a back up. These are not idol requests or wasted words by any means. Trust me when it comes to this and do everything you can to remember that back up. Write a note and staple it to your head if you must and place a mirror next to your monitor so you can be sure you see the note. You should probably write the note backwards so that it will be easily read in the reflection as well. It would seem obvious, but a person who constantly forgets to make a back up really cannot be trusted to notice the obvious, now can they?

There are all these nifty features that Blogger has added to their programming and many of these nifty features are, well, nifty. There are quite a few I would love to have on this blog. Things like guard rails to place around the cliffs for example and maybe a sign or two warning of the cliffs ahead; nothing too extreme or noticeable, but just minor tweaks to the ascetics of the place. I tried to add a few of these new features last night. You may have noticed that brief period of time where things were all screwy here at the Lemming House. That was me playing with the HTML code and ignoring the “save your template before making changes” warning. To make a long story short (too late) I lost most of my links and did not like the new template either: it was a double loss.

I am lucky (or just smart enough to outsmart myself) in that I do have a few different pages set up with similar templates, but only my main page is updated as I add new friends. I am a lazy, lazy blogger. This would be why the troll warning has reappeared on the front page for example. I did not erase anyone’s link per say and am really sorry for losing some really great links. Please if I have lost your link please let me know and DO NOT THINK I DROPPED YOUR LINK FOR SOME NEFARIOUS REASON! The only reason is that I am not very bright half of the time and am sort of dim the rest of the time.

You may have lost me, though to be honest, I don't remember if you linked to me or not.

I did. Thank you so much. This is what I wanted! You are back.

I panic when things go haywire and I don't have a backup. I'm glad you got everything straightened out.

I don't know what I lost is the problem. Victor is a great example. I love his blog, but in my panic forgot to add it. I have no idea what else is gone so I am in minor panic mode.

I can't tell what's missing. I can tell your list isn't as long as it was, but I'm not sure who's MIA.
