This is just about MY pictures that have disappeared from the site...

Thank goodness the whole site was not affected, and only made me (and perhaps a few of you) pull their hair out..

Not just your pictures but what the heck happened to my first post in "285 Foodies > Forum > Restaurants & Coffee Houses > The Rest of the World > ME"?

Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

Some thoughts on the word "Foodie".. 


http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/06/25/opinion/mark-bittman-rethinking-the-word-foodie.html?_r=1&referrer


.....

I've long ago conceded that I take my breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, supper, and midnight snack way too seriously. But when it comes to debating things like debating "foodie" or "is food art?" I will leave that for people who take themselves too seriously. That's a line I won't cross. I'm too busy eating.

Yeah, I hate the term "foodie" for what I do. But I can't think of a different word that I like. Gourmand?  Too snooty. I'm not really activist, but I care about food related issues. Meh. I just tell people I like to eat.

I have been operating on a "Tablet" or phone for a few weeks, seems like my computer is fixed and up and running, so I hope to fill in some "place holder" messages I have left behind. 

I good computer with a comfortable keyboard is a GREAT thing to have..

.........

It was NOT, NOT, NOT fixed..      after a complete tear-down it was a faulty switch, on the front of the computer..

cost:

2 motherboards
2 CPU's  ( one salvagable )
WEEKS of downtime that made me work on an ASUS tablet
A Room AC unit that now keeps our office at 62º so I have to wear a jacket
One of the MB's is salvageable, the other somehow got it's processor pins bent on the install, it is junk and has never booted up. 

The switch was $14.00, the rewiring was $11.00

But now this bad puppy flies. 

This is the first post on it since I just plugged it in..     6:01pm  10/27/14

Dear God, please let this thing work..
