Is it down for you?

I wanted to show you something from Facebook, but it won’t let me in. Been that way for at least an hour.

Sometimes sites object to my VPN, as if I’m bouncing around Europe like an international spy. I know where I’m ‘coming from’ when my sidebar ads are in Dutch or Spanish.

Oh, wait. Now it’s working. Thanks a lot, Facebook, for embarrassing me in front of my friends.

I wanted to point you to this video of mechanics completely disassembling a car dashboard to get to a rescue kitten that crawled up a vent. Kitten makes an appearance at the 4:00 mark.

Okay, it’s not much, but this is Monday we’re talking about. I’ll take what scraps of cheer I can find.

They should have just sent in The Stubborn Husky who would have solved the problem while issuing a “play-by-play”.

Apparently, singer Mac Davis is in critical condition in a hospital, in case someone wants to jump into the Celebrity Dead Pool…

Sweasel, at least it was their bug that embarrassed you in front of your friends. Most Fecebook users do that all by themselves.

Bugs in the code. Pshaw! That could never happen. The youngsters assured me they know exactly what they were doing, and I am old fuddyduddy.

Don’t forget to give Microsoft all your data with OneDrive!

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
