Bruised, Bothered and Bewildered---but otherwise in the game

I guess from all this rebuild of our site, the one lesson I have learned is---make a copy first, then try changing it-----I have now spent the better part of three hours trying to replicate my list of my blogger friends---and the only way I know how to do that is to go back and review comments on earlier posts, click on their icons, which takes me to the profiles, which in turn reference their blogs, which I can then go to , copy the URLs, and re insert them in a new blog roll . The work goes slowly-----I have lost all my buttons, so who knows what is happening with my technorati, sitemeter, bloggertalk, and google accounts??
How did this all happen you ask?---the long story , short version is---I wanted to learn how to do some HTML code changing. add a Technorati widget to my site----Not knowing just what I was doing, I created a dummy blog with which to experiment, and learn how, then with my learned knowledge apply it here to this blog----well I got to working with this blog, the new dummy blog, the technorati page, and was flipping around between them all, and decided it wasn't working so would just delete it all---which I did---unfortunately happened to be in THIS blogs HTML at the time, thinking I was in the dummy blog----so you can classify it as just a stupid error---an accident that shouldn't have happened----anyway it will be days before I can get Humpty Dumpty back to some resemblence of its former self-----


  1. And you want McCain to have his hand any near the launch codes?! That's it! Wayne take the remote away from Gary before he does any more damage.


  2. Welcome to the world of technology! Writing code is not for whimps..takes time and lots and lots of patience! If you type one little " nothing will work! Been there done sorry for you loss Gary. Sometimes it's just good to leave well enough alone aye? On the other ya something to do?

  3. What's the expression everybody? "If it ain't broken don't try and fix it."

  4. Gary, you know I'm here for you if you need it. This man has guts guys, he's just diving into this stuff like it's going out of style, good on you Gary! However, I feel bad for what happened to you man, I feel partly responsible I guess.

    But, the upside is a huge lesson learned. Now you know what I've been doing for the past 12-15

    I'm here if you need any assist Gary, just ping me.

    And where did you put that remote Gary?

  5. Hang in there you will get it all back!!!

  6. Ouch. Ouch. I don't mess with code. I'm not lazy, just inept.


Speak up, don't be a nebish---your opinions do count.
