Technical Difficulties

I should have remembered from when I used my Dad's laptop to post when I was in Maine - Macs and Blogger don't always get along well.  I was having a little success in uploading photos and tried to improve the situation by installing all the updates and security patches, upgrading to Safari 3.2, and then trying Firefox.  The web is full of advice for fixing the problem as it is common.  Unfortunately, all those downloads take time at the dismal bandwidth out here, and the situation has actually gotten worse.  I'm going to keep working on it and go back to uploading photos from Goldfish's laptop . . . .

HUmmm,
If it was still the Laptop I would say bring it on over to the hotel and use our faster Connection.....LOL
Actually the Entire island has been slow the past few days, especially this morning. The Credit card Machines are taking forever, when they are working at all, and The Fax machine is just not working.
Seriously, I am not uploading ANYTHING!!! I am not stealing the entire island's bandwidth for another marathon posting!!!
Really, I promise!!!

Sorry you are having trouble. We have not had any problem with posting from our Mac, even with the slow internet. Knock on wood. I probably just jinxed myself, huh?

How strange. My mac doesn't seem to have any problems with Blogger... never has. Very curious.

I'm starting to think it isn't the mac - I think it is the ISLAND. I couldn't upload a photo from a pc at work either . . . .

Dang it!!!!! I hate technical difficulties.
Maybe it's the Christmas shopping thing and EVERYONE is online ordering stuff to send to their families/friends.

I think you are right--it is the island. :) I had problems with the Mac occasionally while I was out on St. Paul, but never do here in the the lower 48.

Hope you get it handled soon; I miss your postings.

I cannot post photos now either. I tried last night and again this morning. I knew I shouldn't have said anything!! I think it is definitely the internet here and not our computers.

It's the island! I can live with that . . . I won't take it as such a personal failure and I take back all the Mac mutterings! I'll post text until it resolves itself.

Hey Steve and "Gigi" LOL
I just did a large Post with pictures so I think the Island has finally decided to give us the Internet back.
(I think she just wanted some attention, everyone was so distracted with the Holidays and gifts and parties she was feeling a little Jealous)

I was hoping everything was all right. I was envisioning so horrible snow.

I hope your technical difficulties are over! We lent a friend our spare computer and he destroyed it!! Now he has no money to pay to fix or replace it! Oh well. Lesson learned. Hope the internet doesnt act up anymore.
