We have all seen that little sign – “do not remove cover while appliance is plugged in”.
Well we did. Or rather Ron did. He was over here yesterday and did a little tweak to the Blog, as there were one or two things about it that were annoying me. And tweaking a live blog is sort of dangerous. Because anyone in the world can see you make a mess of it while you are doing it.
Now the problem is that he didn’t check the blog properly before leaving. And last night I got a call to say it wasn’t working properly.
So Ron arrived this morning. Luckily he has nothing better to do. Or else it’s because I threatened to bash his brains out.
He set to work and dismantled the site. He sat there the entire morning staring at lines of strange writing on his laptop. I don’t know what the writing was but it didn’t look like a blog.
Then he decided to set up a new identical blog in another place so he could run some tests. It ran perfectly there.
So he decided to completely remove poor old Head Rambles. It was quite a moment. I shed a few tears but he assured me nothing was going to be lost.
He rebuilt the site from scratch. And you possibly saw that because you may have been trying to look at it. And you would have seen some strange things. But they were nothing compared to the strange things I saw and heard. I thought I had a good command of the coarser aspects of the language, but by God I learned a few new words. When Ron gets going, he can blister paint at twenty paces. And he was in fine form because he still couldn’t get the site to work.
I didn’t like to interfere, because I was afraid he might turn violent. So I slipped him a note –
“Have you tried kicking it? It always works for me”
Now I don’t know whether he lost the head, or took my advice, but he gave the PC a mighty wallop.
The site worked!
The only problem was that he had lost all my images.
So he rang a good friend of his called Jimmy who works in Blacknight Solutions who apparently look after my humble little site. And Jimmy performed the miracle. He e-mailed me all my images. He must have been collecting them as a hobby. If you are reading this, then thanks Jimmy.
I hope you like the new look of the site? It has caused a lot of grief. Ron is ten years older, and his PC has a big dent in its side. The dog is still in hiding and Herself won’t talk to me.
Was it worth it?
