Either LJ is having troubles or we are with the network locally. I'm TRYING to load images for the band-mates to choose for shots that Eric needs for the promo he's doing up for QG.

Every time I try to load a photo, it tells me that the connection got interrupted.

So this may take some time, folks. I've spent ALL morning on this so far. But I FINALLY succeeded in "photoshopping" some images to my satisfaction; little stuff like replacing a house corner with shrubbery, and de-emphasizing my ugly tooth fillings in this pic.

Huh, ok...well, it let me make this icon; why won't it let me download images?

(And yes, Berkie, I know it's blurry; I don't know how to do that but if you'll clue me in, I might be able to learn it!)

You know you live in a household of geeks when you're in the room alone and you IM them both, in separate rooms, on separate computers, to tell them that supper's ready.

Can I say how DONE I am with Printers?

[ profile] joegoda came over for dinner last night; we had a lovely time and a wonderful chat. He began helping me with this printing invitations problem; got the computer program problem solved but then the printer continued to fubar. We ended up printing one at a time and got about a dozen more out. But at the rate it was crumpling envelopes (catching the flap in the printer) I can't afford to lose too many more envelopes. We worked until well after 11pm by the time I decided to give it up.

SO hand-addressing the other half is my decision.

BUT NOW, I can't even print off the list....GORRAM-it!

So I'm trying not to throw the Lexmark out the farking window. I'm going to go get the ink cartridge that I need for the Brother and see if I can make it work. I CAN"T be without a printer and I MUST get these invitations done!

We're at FIVE weeks now...

I need some geek help. As per Bruce's instructions I bought a new web-cam today. Amber installed it for me but when I tried to turn it on, I got a message that said something about "being behind a firewill so can't be viewed."

Yes, I'm clueless. Is this something a computer dummy like me can fix? I wanna be able to see my sweetie's face before I go to sleep!

Oh yeah...

Yahoo IM still isn't working on my machine. But Google Talk does anybody who doesn't have google and who wants to be able to chat with me, you know what to do. I have Gmail invitations a-plenty.

But today is about production....

For anyone who is wanting to chat with me today....sorry, but Yahoo is being stubborn again. Yesterday I finally dumped it and reinstalled it and it was working fine. This morning it won't refresh and I can see when somebody is IMing me but I can't respond. grrrrr....and the Mac is finally dying, I think.

Silly little frustrations I don't need today. And I'm sewing like mad, fitting with Gloria's grandson this afternoon and ongoing queen and princess costumes that must be finished by next weekend plus doublet collar that needs to be re-made on Bruce's doublet and Amber wants a new chemise and I really wish I could finish my new surcoat since it's going to be 90+ degrees down there this weekend.

*sigh* So if you really need me today, email is the best bet. I'm up to my ass in alligators. And yes, I know they're alligators I invited in, but still...
