Technical Difficulties....

Ever had one of those days?  It appears that the Cyberspace Gremlins struck my blog...  Ughghghgh!  So freaky.

We returned from vacation last weekend to the dreaded BLUE SCREEN of DEATH, but thanks to my daughters' super-geek totally awesome friend, the power source and video cards have been replaced and the computer was working great.  

For a few days, anyway.  GUGHGH!  It appears that all of my pictures uploaded on Blogger since last January have bitten the dust!  Now they've been replaced by the ominous

BLACK PLAGUE!!!

I didn't lose my digital pictures, it just appears that Blogger or Google+ or Picasa (or maybe my husband?!?) has deleted a file of my Quiltscapes photos - online only, not from my hard drive - and perhaps totally unrelated to the BLUE SCREEN of DEATH incident, but soooo frustrating nonetheless. 

I am working hard to re-do my tutorials, especially those hosted on others' sites, while I figure out a better, more permanent solution than being vulnerable to the whims of the world wide web. 

Meanwhile, if you notice a certain lesson or tutorial that you'd like to see that still has the BLACK PLAGUE, please comment to let me know, and I'll get it cleaned up for you right away.  Otherwise, it is going to take awhile to reload all my photos into my posts and pages from the past seven months... stay tuned!

  1. Oh NO! That is such a tragedy! That sounds like it will take such a long time to replace all of the photos in their rightful places. Ugh. Good luck.

  3. I`ve seen the dreaded blue screen a time or two as well. I had to replace pictures in Blogger once. It took a while. Walk away for a bit sometimes and go back to your pictures when you are refreshed. Good luck!
