I know, you come here expecting to see the denizens of the swamp and for several days all you have seen is that silly tick. Why? Because for some reason, known only to itself, Hello has decided to quit working. Oh, it tells me it is putting my images on my blog and asks me to wait as this "might take a few seconds," but then, nothing. Nada. Zip. I wait and wait but see no little reassuring Kbps numbers in the lower right of my screen, I see no "Post successful" message.
So, being a responsible-type, I go to the online help which refers me to the online forum where, by gosh, I find someone with an inquiry about the exact same problem! When I click on the reply to said inquiry to learn how to fix this little problem, I am told that I must first join Google Groups. Why? I am already a Picasa and Hello user and I am just looking for a solution to a problem with the software I am already using. Maybe I am just in a mood today...but I don't want to have to join to get an answer.
By tonight I will probably fold and sign up for the blasted GG, but for right now I am going to stick out my lower lip, put my hands on my hips, stomp my foot, and whine. When I am done raging against the machine I will attempt to post again. So please know that in the meantime, I am thinking of all you swamp-deprived people out there and I am still taking pictures to share.
