melt-down of all my computer communication platform--no facebook tech support?

Friday, January 28, 2011

remember my olive oil spill which catalyzed my house cleaning?....the same kind of disaster happened this kind of week with email accounts and my facebook account.....i won't get into the story of it, because it's quite boring, but the net-net is that i went on facebook to try to fix something that was not broke, and ended up fouling up my settings and eventually locking myself out of my own facebook account--and facebook does not have tech support so i tried back end ways of getting into my facebook account which screwed up access to my hotmail accounts--and disaster, melt-down you name it....

...took me a whole week to fix all the problems...made me mad, frustrated, made me waste sooooooo much time....

...so it's all cleaned up and fixed up, (and those of you who want to be facebook pals, just send me a private message here on spark and we can exchange info...)

...as with the oil spill almost a year ago in my pantry, there was a silver lining---it catalyzed a major clean up of my house, which i don't know would have happened if the oil spill did not happen....

...same thing with this chernobyl level meltdown of all my computer communication platforms--it's caused me to clean up my contacts and create my new chapter in my life...

...for those of you who don't know, i quit my job (my 2nd major career in my life) 3 weeks ago..it was sooooo hard for me to do, but it was the right thing for so many reasons (another blog)....and part of the healing process for me was creating new email accounts and facebook pages and start my life fresh with my new blog....

...so thank you computer platform meltdown! you came insidiously, but i needed you so bad!

    For some reason I haven't been getting email updates, so here I am catching up! I have no technical background, and can feel your pain on this one! Annoying as it all is, it seems like it set you up for a wonderful, fresh, new start!

    This is awesome the way it's given you a fresh start!! I missed you while you were on your cleaning venture and I totally understood but I totally intend on staying touch with you computer crash or not! lol I'm not on Facebook anymore...just too much drama for me with my kids friends and then their parents too. TMI is what it got to be! I hope to start a blog like you ...a running blog separate from Spark when I have the time. I'm also on Daily Mile..just to see the bar dealys go up and down to show my improvement running! Oh...the house venture - it's going pretty well. We are lucky to have a fabulous realtor. My hubby is a mortgage banker... so we're in good hands that way. However...it's been challenging for me to find the *perfect* home. I want this, I need that, I refuse to live in something like THAT again,....all of those types of things come into play. It's fun touring homes and yet, difficult because we're in limbo and I don't do limbo very well!!! :)

    I think if we look for the silver lining, in most things, it will be there. I'm glad you found yours. emoticon *cheers* to a new start in your life.

    I had a crash last week. Hubby got on to me for having so many tabs open. He said it was 200. I didn't do that it was the virus!

    Sounds like we are twins. I couldn't remember my password for my checking account. Had to open a new site, now I have two sites on the bank. At least my monthly summary comes thru on one page, from both accounts.
    We can survive it all and come out ahead--we are WOMAN--
