And Now A Word From Our Sponsors . . .

I am a techno-moron.  Not because I am a literal moron – I hope . . . aren’t they the last to know? – but because I graduated in the wrong year.  The right year for me, but the wrong year for computers.  At eighteen, I had no money to buy a computer and learn.  When I was eighteen, only executives – for the most part – were using computers at work.  And, unfortunately, one year after graduating, when I was nineteen, computers were introduced to schools.  I am the lost class.  I belong to the year of transition.  When I was eighteen, we rarely saw a computer, but when I was nineteen, even grade schools had them. 

To put up my Web site I hired a Webmaster.  However, I am beginning to suspect that he has been beamed up by aliens into their mother-ship . . . I cannot get ahold of him.  I have tried facebook – we are connected.  I have tried repeated emails.  No response.  Yet.  I live in hope.  Maybe he will contact me once he’s back on earth and released from their experiments . . .  He’s a really good guy (not to mention Webmaster) and I hope they left his frontal lobe intact.  I need it.

But to get back to whining, on my Community Forum page, I have had several queries from Web site friends, and I cannot answer them.  Now, for some perverse reason, my site won’t let me leave a comment.  I have to now, suddenly, login.  I am an administrator for goodness sake!  I do not need permission.  I am PERMANENTLY logged in . . .

Apparently . . . NOT anymore.

I am also getting advertising from strangers on my community forums.  Snuffygump, if you are out there, thank you for telling them off for me.  If I could only login to my own forum, I would do the same.  Actually, if I could login on my own forum I would delete them.

So be patient while I do a spot of remedial compu-catch-up.  Don’t worry.  Blogs will keep coming.  But eventually, hopefully soon, I will re-vamp my site and learn to maintain it.

On my next blog – when I’m back in Germany . . .

    I know I’m better off without it. I still refuse to turn my cell phone on. I only got it for that 911 call for when I choke on food in a busy restaurant. :)

    Worst case scenario–

    If you try to login with your password and can’t get in, it’s possible someone has hacked your site and changed the admin password. If your site has a default email address, it may be getting used without your knowledge.

    Hopefully not, though.

  7. Pepper Smith says:

    Well, like I said, hopefully not.

    But if you didn’t approve the spammer’s membership, I’d consider the possibility that someone else has your admin password, and I’d consider changing your password on your blog since the two sites are not actually the same thing. Your password could work fine here and not there.

    Ha…poor Thea! I wish I knew more about the way it is all set up so I could help.

    Maybe the aliens took your webmaster’s “membrane”!

    Good one, Mal! :D
    I just got an email from my Webmaster… The problem… Not mine, but something with the website installation… was solved by him. I guess the aliens left him intact and he was able to phone home :)
    Yay! Now to do some cleanup.
