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 . . .
