Onwards, upwards, sometimes sideways …

pogo

Onwards, upwards, sometimes sideways, used to be the Dammit tagline. But, given the travail of the last few days as I tried and failed to re-establish the site after my own stupidity coupled with rapidly failing vision, caused it to go down, I decided it was now more than ever appropriate 😉

For any anyone who’s interested, here’s what happened:  in a moment of boredom, I decided to get rid of unwanted cookies. You can guess what happened. I inadvertently deleted the cookie which allowed me to access Dammit submissions, dammit.

The fact I couldn’t properly see what I was doing didn’t exactly help.

To cut a long and tedious story short, Cliff, my ever-patient, ever helpful host at Multi-box.be over in Belgium, did what he could to get me back online, but for one reason or another, his efforts failed. These included changing the password, something I’d also tried to do myself without success.

Enter Liz, my equally patient, equally long-suffering wife. She suggested we try her ancient XP computer and Lo! not surprisingly, it worked! So now I’m using my elderly XP lap top Instead of my iMac, which I intensely dislike.

But the story isn’t done yet …

I’ve been using the iMac to publish Dammit And I wasn’t ready to give up just yet. So more in the spirit of adventure and anything else, I tried to log on to WordPress.com — and succeeded!

It has something called Freshly Pressed which allows people who use WP to create posts. So I did a test post and it accordingly showed up On the dammit main page, which I hadn’t really expected.

Onwards, upwards, sometimes sideways ……

Meanwhile, I’m still going to try and implement the suggestion made by my dear friend Gubatron at FrostWire and turn Dammit Into a podcast site.

So stay tuned as I try to figure out how to get sound files into story posts 😉
