Frustrations and ML

“You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures.”~ Charles C. Noble

Thank you for the warm welcome back!
I am amazed y’all are still here!
I am having serious computer issues.
I have not been able to post.
IE takes 10-15 minutes to load one page and when I try to make a post it times out.
I hope to have this resolved.
I have tried to visit with you and I can’t get your pages to load.
I may have to switch to the beta thing but as of now I don’t know what I am going to loose from the posts I already have by changing to beta. I am tempted to click that button. But like I said it isn’t just blogger it seems to be a problem with anything I want to do on the internet.
I am working on it.
I have not switched to beta yet but this seems more of an internal problem with my computer. I will do my best to get it resolved ASAP.
Cross your fingers so I can get IE and pages open again.
Murphy is having fun with me….
I was all revved up and excited to be back and whammo!
I am tenacious I won’t give up. I will let you know when I resolve it.
Miss you all!
Huggs and Love from
Raggedy the “Cool One”

Just two words for you Raggedy Firefox, & Beta, if they don't work two more, New Computer.

Welcome back! Here's hoping you get your pc back to working the way it should soon!
Yea! What Peter said! Firefox! It's all I've been using now for about 2 years.

I am a very strong believer of Firefox. My husband has been a beta user of firefox and its affiliates from the begining.

I hope you are able to resolve your issue soon and return to us for you are missed very much.

As I said the other day, publishing blogs was very problematic for me until I switched to beta. I didn't lose anything in the switch, and publishing after the switch has been like instantaneous, very easy, for me. Switching seems like a good intermediate step you could take until you get a better connection somehow.

Not being terribly erudite in the field of computer intricacies, I have little else to add here, beyond what Peter said.

And welcome back ;-)

I'll probably be the last to try the Beta gig; I still won't get a cell phone...

Echoing what others have - I didn't lose a thing on the switch to beta. You will have to re-add things to your sidebar - they are saved.

Oh by the way! Welcome back, Raggedy One.

I just read about your blog over at Maryanne's. I've been tempted to switch to the beta thingy, too, but have similar fears. I need to get away from Blogger!!!!! Grrrr....

Welcome back. Only thing more frustrating than having computer problems is keeping up with all the "needed" upgrades associated with the various programs.

How I relate! I had my computer embroiled in a legal battle with an unscrupulous "Chop Shop", then had it rebuilt over three months froma legitimate shop.Now I'm in between cities and blogging on a light schedule but wanted to say you are linked and I know that if you do some research you will overcome the IE issue!

Yep, computers are those love-hate relationships ... either you love to hate them or hate to love them.

Yup,we are still hanging in here.I can relate...TOTALLY.Since I moved out here on the lake(lakeside,that is)...I have been on dial-up,and I have never had so many problems like I do now.Not to mention,slow speed is for people with ALOT of patience...so that leaves me OUT.I can fold a load of laundry and even put them up waiting on pictures to load! Then sometimes I wait forever,just to get a "timed-out" page.UuGH! It can get very stressful.Thank goodness it's only temporary.
Hope your Christmas went well..Happy New Years"!
