In fact I'm so annoyed I might just consider using a pen or at the very least, a good old-fashioned typewriter!
After wrestling with the computer, I decided to record a show for later. And another wrestling match ensued when record refused to comply. Not even dire threats of bodily harm would change its little electronic heart. I finally realized that I have the upper hand and disconnected it from the wall. It's amazing what a good old-fashioned jump start will do.

Electronics and me this week are on the outs. Although I'm pleased to report that today we've returned to speaking terms. The blog is up and running - properly. I discovered that a complete wipe out and retype of the last post combined with a deletion of the post just prior, which proved to be the originating problem - only an hour or two or three or... of work and research - solved the problem.
What I've learned from this fiasco - besides the fact that sometimes a fix really is a case of luck and a jump start. The one big lesson - never trust code you didn't enter yourself and never trust the fact that just because the post looks great on one browser that it looks good on them all. A lesson learned the hard way.
Now it's Saturday, blistering hot and with the problem that irked me for so many hours resolved, its time to kick back and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
The question is do I dare hit publish on this post - or would that be pushing my luck too far?
Guess what - I'm going for it.
You - what do you do when it looks like luck might be waffling?
