At least I thought it was funny!
I've been trying for months now to get our new website up and running, but I keep running into glitches. Mainly those of the communication kind. Anyways, a few of the things we're adding to the website are gizmo's like FaceBook, Flicker, and our blog (that no one looks at...EVER)!
So, I'm trying to get my new co-worker to help me with this little project of mine and I ask her to set up a Flicker account. Now I've been blogging for almost two years and you would think I'd have a clue by now, but no... sometimes I think I'm blonde ;-). By the way, I'm a brunette or closer to a mouse brown, but always imagined my self as a red head. Thank you Clairol!! You've made me a happy girl.
OK back to my funny blunder...
My new co-worker shows me this real cool thing called Picasa and what do you know, every picture I've ever down loaded to the work blog is right there. How in the world did that happen? So, I tell her to delete EVERY ONE OF THE PICTURES!!!! And then we went about our merry way.
This morning I turn on my computer, open up my work blog, and there's not one picture. No header, no sidebar images, and no pictures with the posts. How did this happen? I begin to have glimpses of the previous days activities and think, "OH NO! When we deleted the pictures from the albums they were removed from the blog, yeah, my thought exactly.
Who knew there were cyber rabbit trails from one image to an unknown album in a strange thing called Picasa? Certainly not I! While I'm sitting there looking at a blank blog my boss walks in and says in her Indian accent, "Miss Cori, what are you doing?" So I tell her, "I'm staring at our blank blog." She says, "oh yes, I meant to ask you about that." Wouldn't you know she was talking to a friend and sent her to our blog, that no one ever looks at EVER and IT HAD NO PICTURES!
Today I spent the entire day retracing cyber rabbit trails from one folder to the next and I learned a valuable lesson...If you find a mysterious cyber album with all your images in it, it's OK. It's there for a reason.
No! Really! I am a brunette ;-).
