Involuntary Vacation

Have you ever had an involuntary vacation?

Well, that is what happened to me. I was forced to take an involuntary vacation because my computer locked up on me. Since it is a work laptop. I had to take it into the helpdesk — talk about an oxymoron — and they were soooo “helpful” in getting it fixed. Basically, they ended up re-imaging my laptop when they couldn’t figure out another solution.

In the meantime, what does that mean for me? Well, for starters, I am stuck using Internet Explorer 8 with no ability to upgrade or no ability to download another browser such as Firefox which is what I had been using to post here.

WordPress is not displaying properly. Right now, the only option of the formatting toolbar is spell check. The other buttons are there, but I have no idea of what they are until the alt tags display. The menus on the left side of the screen shift right regardless of the link I select.

So, I have to work on a solution to make it easy and semi-convenient to post. Bear with me and, in the words of that great actor (note sarcasm here) — “I’ll be back” to my normal posting schedule soon enough.

    I don’t know that those words were uttered by a “Great” actor…lol Did you reformat your HD? Good luck had wondered why your blog went silent.

      They reimaged my computer and I am now locked into IE8. I have to see if I can use this to post. If not, I am going to probably have to move to another site since it would be too cumbersome to post here.

      Still working on it.

Let me know what you think.
