I'm sorry my blog's been static for a week. Stuff's been going on.
First, when I tried to post, I was denied access. It seems blogger has robots that roam the site on the lookout for spam blogs. Apparently the robot decided my blog was spam, so I was shut down. All I had to do to reverse that ruling was to request that a human look at my blog to determine it's not spam and unlock it. That and be patient for a few days.
Then my email started giving me fits. Aaargh! I spent four hours with tech support from three different companies. Everyone said the problem was not their issue. I became so convinced that my computer was messed up that last weekend I went out and bought a new MacBook. The next day I realized that my email STILL was not working. It was a problem with my Internet provider. Aaargh, again! On Sunday I spent another hour with tech support, and it seemed my issues were resolved.
Then Tuesday rolled around and I discovered my emails were leaving my outbox and evaporating. I spent another 40 minutes on the phone with tech support today. The outcome? The techie is stumped.
I now have a new gmail account that I'll be using. So if you were expecting an email from me and it never arrived, it's probably because the Internet ate my email.
Oh, about the MacBook. It's very nice. :)
