My Wednesday Whine

Time going through my inbox today tripled for this non-technologically savvy PC end user.  The emails that usually start my day on a positive note first challenged me and quickly evolved into frustration. Oh, how I miss those leisurely days living close to my son, Quinn, the IT Guru.

angry dogI’d logged in to WordPress, and yet, likes or comments would not post. Refreshed browser. Problem persisted. Ran quick scan for malware or virus. Problem persisted. Log off, close Browser and restart Chrome. Problem persisted.

I stopped. Refilled empty coffee cup. Deep, cleansing breaths on the balcony… Got it!  Windows Cardinal Rule Number 1: When all else fails (and all else had failed), turn off apps, close programs and restart the computer.  My personal Windows Cardinal Rule 1.1: I routinely clear my browser history and then restart computer. Whatever.

Close apps and programs, click restart…

Mystery solved.


You’re welcome.


Happy Blogging, y’all!

  1. lol! I feel your frustration! Glad it came together at the end;)


  2. So glad it’s solved. Love the photos 🙂


  3. Makes me very happy with my Mac!! Lol. I converted after I took a photography class and everything at school was Mac. It was very frustrating at first, but love, love, love it now. Hugs to you Bert!

    • Bert, most of my friends in publishing prefer Mac. Phil uses both at home, and prefers the Mac for web work. I’ve had too little experience to understand the difference. He uses Firefox on both. Hey Bert, maybe I should switch to Firefox. Chrome still presents its challenges even with Win 10. We’ll touch on that in February. Or not. Can hardly wait, Bert.
      Love you,


Your thoughts matter to me. Of course I'd like to hear from you!
