Poor old Rambles is a sick little bunny.
I fired up the old laptop today to see how it was faring, and it wasn’t. Nothing there but a blank white screen. Nada! Rien! Pure white and fuck all else.
The problem was that I couldn’t fix it as I couldn’t get into it. Even the back door into the maintenance area wasn’t working.
I asked Himself to have a look.
He fared no better and after a lot of hair tearing and foul language he contacted Blacknight. He may be the brains behind the operation, but they are the ones with the soldering irons.
They couldn’t have been more helpful. They got out their stethoscopes or whatever it is they use and they gave their diagnosis – Rambles was sick. That titbit of information wasn’t exactly very helpful but they redeemed themselves by giving the site a thump with a lump-hammer. That fixed it. You can’t beat the old thump with a lump-hammer.
I’m not sure quite what the problem was. Himself gave me a detailed breakdown of exactly what happened, but I didn’t understand a word of it. I gather is was something to do with a pipe in the basement springing a bit of a leak and the resulting flood causing a bit of havoc with the electrics. Or something.
The site seems to be OK now. At least I can get into it, even if no one else can, but not many people bother visiting anyway so that’s no problem.
It’s still a bit stiff and sore after its ordeal, so if you are dropping by, speak softly and don’t over excite it. Only one visitor at a time please.
It might appreciate a bunch of grapes too?
Or a pack of tobacco?
