*** Edited to add. Oh God, seriously, after all that (see below), I realise now you can just use the old interface for a few more months. So I might just do that and try and ring virgin media again and see if I can sort something out because, look, this is silly, I have got two degrees and a cycling proficiency certificate. Sorting my internet out without buying a whole new computer cannot be entirely beyond me. I am going off now to mutter to myself and feed the birds like a mad person. Move along everyone, nothing to see here***
Just checking in in case you were wondering about me (I mean, I know why would you etc etc but, just in case…;-) ) and to tell you why I’m not blogging. Readers: it’s not you, it’s me. As you other folks on blogger know, blogger updated their interface recently and it no longer works with my computer, which is very, very, very old, and has a very old OS. So, I can do words (like this post), but I can’t do pictures any more. And we don’t want a series of posts that go ‘and then I saw a great big pink elephant, walking down the road holding hands with a kitten. And I got a photo and I uploaded it but I can’t show you so you’ll have to take my word for it!!!’, do we? Because that would just be depressing.
So I have been (perhaps temporarily, I don’t know) defeated by my technology problems, and I can’t think of a way to sort them out that doesn’t cost money, which I haven’t really got (I mean, don’t feel sorry for me though, because if I didn’t spend all my money on canvases and picks and pole dancing lessons and whatnot I might be able to save up for a new computer). If I suddenly think of a way to get online that doesn’t involve me getting further into debt or trekking across Cambridge to use someone’s wifi for my laptop (I haven’t got wifi here, and I’m not sure I can have it because I think the computer might be too old to work with anything other than an ethernet cable. I’ve tried plugging the ethernet cable into the laptop, which works everywhere else but not with mine. I’ve tried ringing Virgin Media. I’ve given up!), then I shall be back with pics and adventures and all sorts, although I’m being a bit boring at the moment and you’re not missing anything (well, you’re missing the pole dancing and the life drawing classes and all sorts of woolly things and opinions but I’m sorry. I’m stymied by technology! :-( ).
So while I’m on a possibly permanent break, let me take this opportunity (sniffs) to say what a brilliant group of blog readers you’ve been, and how much fun I’ve had, and what a lovely community it’s been to feel a part of. Thank you everyone. Thanks for the memories, and perhaps one day I’ll be able to understand technology sufficiently that there can be more! (I mean, it can’t be harder than climbing a shiny pole, can it? Of course not).
Love you all. Keep on blogging x
