Back on Block Lotto

It has taken me a ridiculous amount of time, but I am f*i*n*a*l*l*y back on Block Lotto.  The problem has not been Block Lotto, it has been me. 

I think I have biotched before about the house computer (the one with the e-book of most of our photos attached) being squirrely.  Well, late last month, it cracked its last nut.  Because it is also the one hooked to the tv (therefore the one on which we view most of the Netflix-Instant videos) this was not good.  We could limp along no more.  After we got back from Savannah (we went to Savannah for a few days; I really want to go back!), A got a new computer, hooked it up & everything EXCEPT the camera software worked like a dream. 

About a week & a half ago, A got the camera software working.  It requires a series of changes to the display that make no damn sense, but now that I know what they are I can do them, load my photos & then reverse them.  & before someone suggests we just get NEW camera software, that would require upgrading either the camera OR handing out wads of cash, neither of which appeals.

Then this morning, I figured out how to reactivate my recently activated (but all on the old machine, so good luck remember user id, password, etc.) WordPress account.  Which means that on the 29th day of the month I finally posted the blocks I made weeks earlier.  Not in time to get the sneak peek for next month, but at least I am back!


  1. Technology seems so easy when it's all working ... and often such a PIA when it isn't. I'm glad you found your way back to the Block Lotto (and all the technology you need).

    Ps. If you ever can't post the photos of your blocks, you can email them to me and I'll take care of it for you.

    1. thank you. Alas most of the problem was getting the pictures off of the camera & on to the PC. The dance steps have been saved, so it should be easier in the future. Should.
