Danger nothing to do!

Do you suffer from itchy fingers? Sitting by your computer, are you tempted to fiddle, delete a program or download a new program? Next thing you know you either have a blank screen or the computer is taken over by an alien entity - flashing warning DO NOT SWITCH OFF THE COMPUTER OR EVEN MOVE WHILE THIS PROGRAM IS DOWNLOADING. Panic what have I done? How can I turn the clock back, so nothing has happened? Been there got the psychological scars. Now have seared into my brain cells:

Start > All programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

But all the bad experience hasn’t stopped me from roaming the byways of cyber space, looking for free downloads. I suppose its “free” that grabs me. What ever tempted me to download a program which will translate my blog into Garza, a language that died in 1828? I have downloaded so many anti-spyware programs that my computer looks like the cupboard you keep your junk in - you open the door and the contents spews out onto the floor. The computer does nothing but run spy ware programs - Alert Spywatch has detected a spyware, no sorry ignore that warning it’s just another anti-spyware program that‘s been detected.

Some of the free downloads available:

NTFS Reader
Access any NTFS volume from a machine running FAT, as easy as pie.

Fractal Forge
Yes, you've probably all seen a fractal generator before but this one is flexible and fast. It all comes flooding back...

IEradicator
Fed up with Internet Explorer? Do you wish you could kill it completely? You can

Can’t understand them, but I just love reading the descriptions.

Ooooooooooooooooooooooo don't talk to me about itchy paws!
I was faffing about yesterday looking at new templates, pressed the wrong button and Wa-heyyy! Old template on my blog GONE.

Fiddled about for hours.

At one point we'd managed to get the old look on the web, but 'behind the scenes' in the management section, it only came up as the new style.

Result- new posts only appeared in the editing, not live.

I was stuck. Unable to update any more.

Waaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh.......

Had to settle with putting it all to a new template. Spent hours customizing colours, sizes, backgrounds,.....

Not sure if I like it as much as the old one. The old one was BROWN like me.

New one's blue. Still, least that's my football team's colour.

But it was all a but scary......

Hi Bob
Let that be a lesson, keep your paws in your pocket or honey pot.
I like the look of your blog.
Tell me how do you create your own background to the blog? - you are a clever bear.
Have a nice Easter
