Computer Woes and Junk Like That...

Kitties, we have gotten bad mews from pawppy. He took apart the big confuser and tried to fix it by replacing one of the components.( He is knowledgeable in these matters...)
Well it did not help our troubles at all. Shucks!
Now the question is how to retrieve all the pics on the broken one...meowmy has them all on CD's or SD cards, but there are a few that came over the cyber waves...She supposes she could ask the senders for replacements...and what a lot of work to re-upload all the SD cards...
Eventually pawppy will get us a new confuser, he will buy the needed components and build his own, from scratch as it were...but we have no idea when this will happen. At least we can stay in touch with this old lap-top. We can make pics on it at the imikimi site, but it keeps freezing up, or the plug in dies...and we can't get the plug in to work on this old confuser in Firefox or we have to use IE...which browser also goes unresponsive a lot:(
So we will try to make pics for really important stuff/events like Cat of the Day and so on...or by spawsial request, only to reduce the stress level of having to reboot this machine over and over again and wait and wait...

And meowmy has a load of unwanted stress on her back right now from her work, which she is not allowed to talk about at this point either...just keep her in your pawyers and thoughts.

This overly warm weather takes a toll, too...meowmy does much better in the low 70's not 86F! At least the humidity is not bad right now!
We did not get any spring, we have full summer! Wow!

We had to watch and be scared of the water softener dude a while ago, but it seems like he may need to invade our space again, as our unit is not working properly, and we are having 'bad' water, you can smell the iron, and some of pawppy's shirts have been ruined by rust...UGH! At least our drinking water is not from those taps! It is spawsially filtered, and delicious!

Well, that's all folks!

Oh, Pipo & Minko, we are purring for you & your meowmy! So sorry to hear about your confuser and the other things. Don't worry about making the kimis - you're always so kind and thoughtful to evfurryone. This weather in Michigan has been so weird. I hope it gets back to being spring soon.

Purrs for you!

Lots of bummers, huh?
We'll keep you all in our purrrayers,
dear friends.

Love & purrs & hugs-
~Manytoes & family~

P.S. Mom is bummed out 'cause Photobucket
changed either yesterday or today, and all
the cool stuff she used for making colored
frames and glittery text is gone. Boo hoo hoo!

Hi, Jez, Manytoes and River!
Yes thank catness for the Pawppys and their brains!
It is still warm here today, but no quite as hot predicted, about 83, MOL!

Manytoes, that must be so frustrating for your Mom.
Blingee has some of that stuff, but not sure if its free. We have hardly used PB because it was slow and ponderous...we do like the imikimi site, though...when it plays nice with our confuser..

Oh heck--that is bad news with the confuser. Hope your running up to speed really soon. We know how frustrating that can be. We had issues a year ago too. First it was the internet provider and then it was our old 'puter. We finally replaced both.

Wow! You're weather is amazing. It's too warm here also, but it is spring and not summer. It's too early for spring here. We remember years when it was in the low 50's at the beginning of May. All our plants are confused too. The magnolia usually bloom in May--we already have the magnolias in full bloom and the daffodils and tulips. Too early!

you are in our take care of yourself and try not to stress to much about work Mom.....pusers are so fickle....just like men MOL ( so meowmy says)

Hi, Colette! Meowmy says she has seen magnolias all abloom, too.
Today was cooler with rainy periods.

Hi, Harley!

Well good news about the work junk...the issue was resolved and now meowmy is so relieved. The work itself is a hard as evfur, wasn't that, but a trouble stemming from things that a confused resident said that had to be resolved and now meowmy is absolved...and she was dubbed a saint, by the boss... MOL!
Thanks so much for all the thoughts and pawyers!

Now to get the confuser issues fixed...hmmm, noit nearly as easy. We made a few pics earlier today, then when we were going to do the last one...crash-freeze and uber slow when meowmy got it running again...and then she had to go to work...

Guys guess what? We have windows 7 now and we are having mucho problems on imikimi. Forget Firefox (our favorite browser) so we are using IE. Hoping for the site to work out issues with firefox soon! *sigh*

What we have had meowmy do, was to go to FF and find the images we need, shut down FF and reboot up the IE browser. Open up only the Kimi site, and make our pics...then we shut down the IE browser, reopen the FF,and open the kimi page...and retrieve the images from the 'kimibag'...because then you don't need the plug in.This seems to keep things running a bit faster on this ancient confuser, and also keeps the thing from saying 'time to freeze up!'
We can't get FF to install the plug in either, though it worked fine on the 'dead' one...and chrome worked after meowmy figured out how to install the plugin there,(But not on this old laptop.), but she never needed to use IE on the old desk she has to use it, and she doesn't like it...sigh...

So glad that you were blessed and gifted with that new computer! Hooray!
Nice to see you 'working' again! MOL!

Have a nice weekend...meowmy is working, that is why she is still up at she is off to bed...nighty-night!
Opera didn't work either.
