Panic Alert


Taylor:  Panic alert!  Panic alert!  Everyone hide.  Jan's on the warpath.  Or maybe not.  Has Jan calmed down?   Is it safe to come out now?

Merci:  What's the problem?

Taylor:  Haven't you heard?  Last night we tried to do a post and discovered Google had made some major changes in how our post photos work. 

Merci:  Yes, and after hours of trying to help us figure out the new system, we all gave up and went to bed.

Taylor:  And when Jan got on the computer this morning, most of our photos had disappeared from our blogs.  There was little left except place markers. 

Merci:  Oh, that must be why those strange sounds were coming from the living room.  I was afraid to come see what Jan was --   What was she doing?

Taylor:  After the initial shock - moaning, crying, ranting?  I have no idea.  I've been hiding and feared this was the end of our blogging.  I haven't been here but a few months, but for you guys, losing years of photos could kill your desire to blog.

Merci:  So why are we posting now?

Taylor:  Jan went round and round until she was dizzy, and she's not sure which setting change was successful, but suddenly all our pictures were back.

Merci:  Oh, so this is a victory post.  Good let's break out the champagne and celebrate our rapid return to blogging.

Taylor:  We don't have any champagne. 

Merci:  Well, the least Jan could do is to split a t-bone steak with us.

Taylor:  You know we never have steak around here.

Merci:  Okay, well break out a -  What do we have to celebrate?

Taylor:  Hope for a blogging future?

  1. Don't you hate it when you change settings and don't know which change worked?

  6. Are you using FireFox? I saw earlier that they said they were changing up a lot of stuff. I use Chrome so everything is still the same. But goodness that is awfully hard for Jan.

    1. Computer wasn't the problem. Blogger/Google was.

  14. PANIC ALERT...that seems doubly dangerous. But so glad you retrieved your photos. They don't EVER really disappear, tell Jan, it's just that they are LURKING and that's worse. But unless she hit DELETE they are still wandering around somewhere in the atmosphere of oblivion. I'll look for a steak but it's gonna be really ripe when it gets there.

    1. Not about the photos on computer. All but one album that Blogger created itself disappeared from the blog. That meant the blog was stripped of all but a few graphics.

    oh yea, they'sa been resetting everything with the roll-out of the https:// setup... though not sure why it would've affected your own photographs; mostly it is about images being sourced from non-'s' sites resulting in 'mixed content'. Am sure there will all sorts of weird effects if I look back through my own bloggy now. Not gonna do that. Too mind-bending.

    Anyhoo - congrats and break out the tuna... hugs wags and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  18. I sure loved the good old days...not that long ago...when I could count on happy days of writing posts, getting to know other bloggers, and just loving what I do.

  19. That must have been a scary moment and so frustrating. Was it a glitch or did they even tell you??

    Glad all is well, now:)
