Upgrading woahs ... and yays

Update: I cannot figure out what's wrong with my regular email at this time ... LUCKILY I have a fallback. Please use my gmail account if you'd like to contact me until I can figure out my other account. Thanks.

I FINALLY upgraded my OS system after waiting as long as humanly possible. I don't like change ... but the loss of the ability to hear even my own pl@ylist, not being able to post comments on a growing number of blogsites and finally not being able to run programs finally sent me over the edge. Just to show you how strongly I did not want to back everything up and upgrade on nothing more than a wing and a prayer ... I have not been able to print for a year and a half because the new printer we got in the Spring of 2008 was not compatable with my older system.

A YEAR AND A HALF without printing ... this is from the desktop of a GRAPHIC DESIGNER ... it's like being mute! (chuckle.) Now I need to find that printer install cd, hmmmm, wonder where that is. Not to mention that my Ph@toshop is now not working. I love that progam and will definitely need to work out the kinks to get that running again. I wonder if the program that I use to create my Vinyl Lettering still works? Oh boy. It may be a long weekend ... seriously named Labor Day for this gal.

Anyway, the biggest loss known so far from this upgrade is my mailbox. I totally overlooked backing that up. So all the awesome emails that I've had during the last 4 years are gone. Including the ones saying hello to the birth of my sons as well as all the cool things that have been emailed to me lately. For that I am bummed ... but I once had someone tell me that you must have room in order to grow. Perhaps this was one way to get there. If you emailed me and I haven't responded please try again ... I'm not sure if my email is even working as my IN BOX is empty ... and it's 3am, not a lot of people awake at this hour. Well, maybe in China. Hello, China ... send me an email and let me know my mailbox works?! HA!

I'm so glad you've gotten updated and are able to enjoy the blog world at its fullest now! Hopefully you can find a way to retrieve your messages from your Inbox! I hate it that you lost them! I'm so sentimental about that kind of stuff...I know you're hating it. Sorry :(
