I love a parade, but I HATE TECHNOLOGY

Saturday, January 19, 2013

This morning in the middle of a session on SP, the computer messed up my SP system. I can't post anything, log in, get mail, or anything related to SP - on MY computer. I kidnapped Ed's. He is coming in so I am going. Bye for now.

I came back to finish this after Ed showed me how to UNDO the problem. What happened is that I have become a victim of random ADS placed in my posts and I tried blocking them and they blocked all use of SP - undid the block and so am back to editing any post I FIND the links in and rewording them so the links disappear. Since it ONLY happens on here, I don't know what exactly is going on but supposedly SP gurus say it is MY problem not theirs. I still think it comes from THIS site though.

Anyhow. I am chilling out this morning and as it almost turns to noon, intend to have a lovely lunch soon and enjoy my afternoon. I am still aggravated about being used as a link to STUPID ad sites and somehow they catch certain words in the posts and the words have NOTHING to do with what the ads are about. I see them in other people's posts also and not just mine. I am really getting annoyed by them.

    I don't like tech pains, to be sure! ...but I think I can sometimes tolerate them better than some parades! LOL If any of you WV locals have ever been to our "firemen's parade" the night before the big Strawberry Festival parade, you know what I mean :) Ear plugs just don't cut it...

    I can understand why you're upset .... if the ads are on the sides of the pages, it is a SP sponsored ad. If the ad is within your blog, you have a virus connected to your keystroking. If you can, might be worth having a virus removal program scan your computer. I have Norton Anti-Virus, SpyBot, and CC Cleaner to keep my computer running better. Oh for the early days when there were no virus or ads on computer feeds... LOL.

    When I started SP just 3 years ago I don't recall any ads or if there were I was oblivious to them. All I can say is I guess SP is making lots of money letting advertisers on here. I doubt that SP is non-profit in spite of the fact that SP is free to use--LOL! Sleep well tonight! emoticon emoticon emoticon
