It was a whole comedy of errors and it felt like we were going down a street in which every traffic light was red.
We knew we were on the road to our destination and we knew we'd get there eventually, but regardless of how fast or slow or strategically we drove toward the next light, it always turned red just as we got there, forcing us to just sit there and wait until it turned green (on its own time, of course) before we could continue until the next traffic light (which, again, was also red).
Then when I went to an Internet place, it wouldn't let me access my blog. I dectuple-checked the password, but no go. And I ended up feeling very insecure there about going into my email, despite the tech-security measures of the place, so I didn't feel able to check that either.
So I feel very rude not answering emails or comments, even though it wasn't my fault so much. Certainly, it wasn't intentional ignoring! But I'm sorry anyway and I apologize.
Bli neder, that will all be remedied today.
And because I'm not done yet with the necessary tinkering, things may go offline again — but hopefully not for such a long time!
