Remember that “Oh good grief!” I began yesterday’s post with? Well, if I had only known… After several very weird fits and starts, my entire neighborhood “went dark” for nearly six and a half hours starting just before 3pm. As usual, no explanation has been provided as to what was behind the outage. There were storms in the area at the time, but the power fluctuations began at least a half hour before they even got here. Argh!
Needless to say, I was “a little bit flustered” by all of this, and was simply in no mood to respond to your comments when I was finally able to. Sorry about that! Anyway, I will try to get to them ASAP but, with even stronger storms in the area today, I wanted to “whip out” some mood soothing humor before another disaster strikes…
BTW, as if the power problems weren’t enough, I’m having “issues” once again relating to the most recent Adobe Flash and Mozilla Firefox updates. However, unlike the “your Flash plugin has stopped working” and “Firefox has stopped responding” messages I was having the last time I got updates to both in close proximity, I’m now getting videos freeze-ups with “A script has stopped working” messages along with the “Firefox has stopped responding” message. Unfortunately, unlike the last time, rolling back to the last “known working” version of Flash only makes matters worse!
And to top it all off, I keep getting “Install Failure” notices when I try to apply the Microsoft Fix It program that’s supposed to turn off the Windows 7 “Desktop Gadgets” feature because of Vulnerabilities in Gadgets Could Allow Remote Code Execution!
Please, kill me now!
I think it’s time to breathe some more into that paper bag I keep handy…
I want ice water.
