Do Not Adjust your set

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2010
I've been experiencing alot of technical difficulties recently.

I've dumped application after application in order to free up space for windows to run (200 megs) n security updates. I've cleaned n compressed. All docs n pics are on a separate drive from windows n virus protection.
This machines ancient nine-year-old C: drive is about at the bare bones of what is needed to perform the basics.
Sometimes while blog surfing I have to repeatedly keep deleting temporary internet files n cookies to even load the page I'm trying to visit. When the space runs out, windows simply doesn't respond.
Crash test** n I am the dummy...
If you noticed I'm not getting to your blog as often, believe me, I'd like to. On many occassions, I've been there n read it, then get bumped off line before commenting, as just happened to me again five minutes ago. Never mind the slow dial-up modem I'm still using.
Other times, all those nifty, new add-ons you may have on your blog crash me out before I can even load most of the stuff. I've noticed that some blogs plant tracking cookies taking up many megs of precious running space as soon as I click over. Unfortunately, it isin't your fault this is slowing me down on my quest to read your stuff.
This Puter is slow, n I'm jealous of all that wifi n hi-speed internet instant loading you all take for granted. My online time is unfortunately very limited due to work n needing sleep. I only have an hour or two to spare most days, n often it takes all that time just to visit one site under my current condition of "windows out of space" issue.
I'm trying to take turns with visits that take longer to load, so many wait until a Day Off when I don't have other pressing missions. TG I finally got the state tax forms completed! Making copies of it is still needed before sending tho- n once again I'm taking it down too close to the wire! I find that trying to fit in errands on the way to work is difficult without making me run late with the uncontrollable slow lines.
Next I'm in a daytime hurry to rake out the yard before the growing grass n incoming tree pollen make the job more difficult. Alot more woods trash needs to get picked up while still visible without the foliage too. I also have to make several dump runs to clear the barrels which are all full. Now all I need is time, dry weather, n the neighbors to stay out of my way.
After dark n after work this computer is totally frustrating me. I'd like to hurry up n solve the problem, but until the economy perks up n allows me more income I'm stuck.

So folks, please forgive my current sporadic online activity. I hope that explains why it may seem I haven't commented in awhile some spots- (sorry!)
(Note: I was gonna post this yesterday, but was again bumped offline in the middle of uploading the pic... sigh!)

Gotta love computers...can't live with them and can't live without them.

And we have to have computers these days - it is such a part of our lives.

Thank you for visiting my blog when you can - I'm always glad to see you. I have resisted those tracking add ons - I know what you are talking about. Some pages are so slow to come up - and I even have high speed internet.

I love that photo - both versions are awesome. The rowboat is just begging for a visit!

Thanks for visiting my blog, Snaggle. I know it's a pain in the butt when computers are slow and pages are even slower to load.

Glad you got the taxes done and hope you get to copy them soon so you can strike that off your to-do list!

G, But when there's a problem with them- it's so aggrivating... n yea it's obsessing! Can't wait for new HD bux!
I do like that I can read your easy loading text fairly quick! (Plus it's fun reading!
Yes I read the last flash n was bumped before the comment-)

Lynn, Can't picture life without them now- Tho one coworker has never touched one yet!
I've noticed yours is the easiest one to load I visit, plus I like your blog update list to see who just posted! Some sites clog windows for days here- not yours! You're welcome, n thanks

Talon, Thanks. I almost didn't post ther original, but think it does help define the effect better. I do want the rowboat! So spiffy n new-
On your blog- waiting for those pics to appear is mesmerizing- I always say ooooo~ when I finally see them! Always wonderful to behold! Your much welcome also-

I had dial-up until about three years ago, and was running an old ragged computer until I met F., who is one of those whizzes who can take cheap parts and bang together a computer. It can be a miserable state; I felt as if the world was running on without me sometimes.

And yet, your art is beautiful. The altered photo of the boat dock is lovely and dreamy. Can you take some consolation from the fact of your talent? I do hope so, and hope the taxes get done on time. Mine will probably be late, with my luck...

I know what you mean on the C-Drive. We had a second drive installed and dump photos over there, but th second one is filling up too.

There are a couple bloggers sites I visit that are so loaded with some kind of codes and such it soemtimes takes 5 whole minutes to open, let alone get to the comments box.

I had some kind of code snippet I installed somewhere on my blog and it loads a lot faster than previously.

I too am always so glad to see you. And if you don't get around I am of course thinking about you!!


Oh, and I want to dive into those pictures.

Meredith, So you know the state of old machine I speak of- Thanks for appreciating my pic work shown here. Years ago I began ESR without any images at all- now I can't deal with not having one to post! Thank Joey for inspiring me to post altered pics n play with more of them. It's fun to do!

JanF, I already have a second drive n have upgraded RAM- But finding 15G is now a small C:drive! Windows n Virus udpates have taken up the entire thing!
Don't have a way to fix this now- I should stay off line until it is!
Sorry I have to slow down a bit- but I get there a few times per week when I can.
The short pier is a popular spot- for me too.

Sounds like my Mac. I'm still on version 9 because I can use my software programmes, but it's a nightmare because all the internet sites are upgrading all the time and my computer can't handle it.

There are some blogs I just can't comment on or read.

Love both versions of the photo.

LLcoolJ, When I upgraded to win XP from ME I had to dump alot of expensive software I'd like back- I do hate when you can't bring it with you! I have an ancient MAC SE with OS 7 from old times- I used them for digital animation in college- they've come a very long way since then! (early '90s) Thanks
