Wednesday Frustrations & Rants...

Oh, friends of the blog world, could anything be more frustrating than an argument with your computer? You know upfront who's going to win!

I love my new background and the company who designed it. However, there has been a good bit of trouble this week in techno-land with download times and page size code issues. Yikes! I know nothing about any of it and I am enormously impressed by anyone who does, but I am frankly exasperated! First, the new code was released for downloading, then it was retracted because the size of the backgrounds were then incorrect. So I waited all day for the moment of the final code release and after carefully downloading the new code and frenetically zipping back to my blog page...awe, NUTS! The size of the two column blog background is totally wrong. Now, I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth, because these lovely backgrounds are absolutely free. And I highly recommend you consider taking a look at the stuff these ladies offer on their site, thecutestblogontheblock.com, both free and for purchase. But, gosh, I am awfully frustrated that my page still doesn't look right. I went back and downloaded the background of the same design but is intended for a three column page. I will continue to use it until the ladies come up with another new code to correct the size. I'm going to stick with them because they seem to be working like banshees to make things right and they really don't have to do that for free services. I just love everything they offer and their prices seem reasonable to me too. This whole problem with download speed and so forth really seems to have evolved simply because they are so popular and they offer so many cute blog perk ups! I think their many admirers and users simply overwhelmed their website.

So, all of that to say this. Sorry I've been so discombobulated this week. I really haven't posted anything of interest in quite a while and so many of you have still very kindly stopped in to say hello and leave comments anyway. Thanks!

May all of you have a wonderful Wednesday...I'm off to the Detroit Art Museum with my husband!

Hi Kathy, to all of us out here looking in, your blog looks just lovely. I hope it doesn't take long for the wrinkles to be ironed out. In the meantime, please stop by my blog. I gladly posted the meme. Thanks for thinking of me! ~Kathy

I know whereof you speak!!! The post I did about our vacation in June took me AND my daughter 3days to get the pictures the right size for the slideshow... because I wanted to use pictures from mine and 2 of my daughters cameras.
I thought I would never get it like I wanted it... but Susanne wouldn't give up!!!
