Talk about a fiasco!
Everything was nicely set up and all I had to do was click one button.
I should have known better.
What a fucking mess.
Fucking blank screen for most of the day.
Anyway the site seems to be up and working now.
I put a marker on the site where no one would notice. I had a line in the last post on the old site saying "Could be hours? Could be days?". On the new site I changed that to say "Could be hours? Could be days? Or weeks?". So I know know it's on the new site that is working.
I should have chosen a different little marker!
What do they say about tempting fate!
A problem with comments?
Welcome back GD. Is it ok to comment now and if not what happens? A good spanking? Oh noooo.
All these computers and they can't think, just do what they're told/programmed to do.
Far too much trust placed in them.. even the spellcheck and grammar you have here has people second guessing themselves.
Anyways, not your fault the machine is dumb GD..
Just testing the smileys.. 🙂
I never left a smiley.. It's not the same without one.
Smile and the world smiles with you..
Yes! Everything's perfect.
Well done GD.
Thanks! 😀 [ <- I can do smileys too]
At least the bloody thing is working now….
For the moment.
It looks the same as it did before but I guess that was the intended outcome.
The general hope is that there is no change whatsoever.
I'm not sure how I managed it but the database thing is only half the size of the old one.
There was a lot of rubbish in there!
"Warp factor nine Mr Scott"
"I'll see what I can do GD!"
Good to have you back.
P.S. To help an old luddite out, where the heck are you lot getting those smiley things from??
Eeek! I have turned into a snowman!
Oh dear god, now I have turned into a hexagonal monster, oh no, someone has slipped something into my sanatogen…
Hah! Do you want to go back to being a snowman? Or just a blank space?
Too many ads GD. That,s what fucked it all up. The database just could take it Captain, The Dilithium crystals were in meltdown.
Judging by the pittance I'm earning from them, there obviously aren't enough of the damned things. Maybe I should put up more?
So, son – how goes it? Sorry I haven't been 'round much – been keeping my head down until this whole election thing we got going blows over. Though it should be safe to get out and about in a day or two…unless the courts step in, in which case I may just finally immigrate.
Speaking of which, one of my short-list spots was Ireland. But I keep hearing things like ‘the Irish are to blame for the whole EU fiasco, what with them being greedy and all.’
Know anything about that, do you?
"the Irish are to blame for the whole EU fiasco" yes. You are very nearly right, but transpose two words – the EU is to blame for the whole Irish fiasco. And also for the Greek, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese fiascos. You really need to keep up to date by visiting this place more often!
Oh so the Irish are to blame for it all?
That's funny, I thought it was us!
p.s. – did you do something to your place? it seems, i dunno, fresher somehow….
Depends on when you last visited? There was a redesign a couple of years ago, a minor tweak or two a few weeks back or a total technical rebuild today, but the design remains the same. Take your pick!
Oh no, no… know know?? now know??
Those magic mushrooms are great yokes.
Head Rambles rides again! A fine recovery job, GD. Now get back to work. 😉
Ooooo, and comment posting is nice and quick now. I am impressed!
