Lemming Alert Update: Do I Get My Hopes Up?

I do not know who or what to thank right now, but I should probably sacrifice some small animal to some internet deity or something. My cats are hiding as I type this like they both have something to worry about. One is a precious little love machine who I could never sacrifice for any reason, but the other one…

The reason for the joy and the desire to appease the gods is that I got a miracle in my email just now– Serena left a comment on my site!

Is it possible that Blogger actually fixed something? Can it be that, after days and weeks and months of bugs with each showing up the one that came before; can it be that they actually fixed the code? Oh do I dare dream that it will remain fixed? Do I make plans for the next time I am locked out or do I just bask in the comfort of being allowed back in my own house?

On the Word update, I found a program called “Atlantis 1.6” that is only 29.99 after a 30 day trial. So far it is decent: no Word, but it will do. It corrects my spelling which is just a G-d send, but I don’t get the security of the grammar lines. The only really annoying thing about the program are the sounds, but you can disable them easily. I think I am going to try and go back to Word somehow though, even if I must buy it.

One last thing– I am going to play with the template tonight a little and see if I can take advantage of any of those nifty beta toys. Do not be alarmed. There is no need to find the nearest cliff. Glad to be back.

Find something to sacrifice, for tomorrow is both Full Moon and Groundhog Day. Something's gonna die. I'm doing a weasel myself.

Do NOT dare dream that Blogger will actually remain fixed. It ain't gonna happen. It's true that some blogs are now accessible again and you can even comment on some (but not all) of them, but sooner or later it will be something else. This is BLOGGER, for God's sake, Home of the Big Booger Bugs.:)

Oh, I forgot to ask -- what kind of sounds does your word processing program make? I love sounds!

Kanrei said...

It makes weird sounds. Ocean waves when it opens. Typing sounds for letter (expected that one), but weird cartoon sounds for other things. I turned it off.

So good to be able to comment again.

Woo hoo! You have comments! I have to run off and check to see if I do.

Southern Writer said...

Nope. No comments for me. :-(

Kanrei said...

SW,
Send them emails. I did like 3 times today. They got it to work on the third.

Little Bird Blue just let me know - I'm up again. I think Corn Dog did something to help me out. Thank God for friends!
