Crap mood!

It’s Monday morning and it’s not going very well.

In fact I feel I’m still trapped in my mood from the weekend. Oh that didn’t go very well either. It was utterly crap! yeah crap! I can’t even be bothered looking for a more suitable word for it, just to sound a little polite and lady like. oh hell who cares anyway.

Now why was it so crap?

I’ve no idea… might even have been the weather.. up till Friday evening  there was a heat wave and then at 6pm the heavens burst open… and it poured like it had never poured before. Of course living in Glasgow we should be used to this kind of weather but you know just once I wanted a nice bloody weekend. I did want to go out and enjoy the sunshine, was even thinking of having a BBQ or going on a picnic…

But worse is the fact that the laundry never got done. There was nowhere to dry it and using the dryer continuously is not good either.. they are all complaining their clothes are shrinking… I’m like… they are not shrinking!… you lot are getting fat!… ok that was a bit nasty but then again I’m in a nasty mood. I did manage to get my nieces and nephews’ uniforms washed and dried so I’m not all that bad… 🙂

I’ve still not got many answers for my really grumpy mood at the weekend… there were a few things… one of them is yesterdays posting on here…

Today isn’t going well because first of all the morning post pissed me right off… why do companies wait till Friday night to post out bad news in letters? Is it so on Monday morning we can just sink lower into our mundane moods and feel worse? Why do they always wait till Friday to send me bad news that they know is gonna arrive on my doorstep on a Monday morning? I demand to know!

Second of all a file I lost week on my pc still hasn’t turned up… I was hoping my wizard would have left it in lost and found but fat chance… it’s a file full of spread sheets that I desperately need… and I have no back up … now need to do them all again.. makes me a not very  happy person…

How the hell does a file just disappear of your computer? How is that possible? It’s never happened to me before so why now? and why this file?

Anyways that’s my rant for the morning… now going to see if I can get a start on those spreadsheets…

Remember when….

Remember when…?

A computer was something on TV from a science fiction show.

A window was something you hated to clean

and RAM was the cousin of a goat…

Meg was the name of a girlfriend

and gig was your middle finger upright.

Now they all mean different things and that really mega bytes.

An application was for employment.

A program was a TV show.

A cursor used profanity.

A keyboard was a piano.

Memory was something that you lost with age.

A CD was a bank account.

And if you had a 3 1/2″ floppy you hoped that nobody found out.

Compress was something you did to the garbage not something you did to a file.

And if you unzipped anything in public you’d be in jail for awhile.

Log on was adding wood to the fire.

Hard drive was a long trip on the road.

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived

and a backup happened to your commode.

Cut you did with a pocket knife.

Paste you did with glue.

A web was a spider’s home

and a virus was the flu.

I guess I’ll stick to my pad and paper

and the memory in my head.

I hear nobody’s been killed in a computer crash

but when it happens they wish they were dead !”

Computers are definately male!

Computers must be male.  As soon as you commit to one you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have obtained a better model.  In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.  Big power surges knock them out for the rest of the day.

Computers Must Be Female.

Only a man could come up with this idea, I found it funny so decided to post it anyway.

Computers must be female.  No one but the creator understands their internal logic.  The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.  The message “Bad command or file name” is about as informative as, “If you don’t know why I’m mad at you, then I’m certainly not going to tell you.”  Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for later retrieval.  As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

 

My new theme…. Mystique

Ok guys, of those who are regular visitor will notice I’ve changed the theme to my blog. I have come from Greyzd to mystique by Digitalnature and I must say I am impressed.

I had been looking at this theme for a good few days and was seriously thinking about changing until a friend suggested it last night to me as well!

I love the fact that I can customize it to suit me, my moods and my content. The choice of theme options is generous too. As you can see I’ve chosen the sidebar-content-sidebar. This really feels like it’s my own blog and that i’ve built it myself. It’s all about me and what I want.

This is what Digitalnature had to say about their very own theme..

“Packed with six layout options, six color schemes, a spot for you to link to four popular social network profiles, and support for aside, image, and quote post formats, Mystique can meet the needs of many types of blogs. Further customize the design by adding a custom header and background.”

So, yes, I’m definitely sticking to this one for the time being.. hope you all enjoy the new look too.. 😛

Beginners guide on how to blog successfully!

When you try posting blogs and you do not have the number of readers you want, it does not seem to feel right. So, what you need is to learn some surefire tips how you can launch your blogs and make your readers follow them everyday.

Set up your account and offer them a warm welcome message by introducing yourself professionally and personally. Write about your fascinating features, passion and skills that you think might interest them. This is a way to connect and build a healthy relationship with your readers.

You should be available once you post your blogs. Do not post few blogs and then leave them after a few weeks. When you have your subscribers, give those updates and inform them of something they need to know. Do not dump your blog if you just feel like doing so, instead, you build a community with your blog.

Update your blogs regularly. It is not only for the benefit of your subscribers, but also for the search engine pagerank. Fresh updates will get a higher rank because search engine assumes it is not a very old link.

Give importance to your RSS and Subscriptions. A space for a link on your blog for an advertisement can be a way to make additional income. Do not forget the significance of your subscribers that can drive more traffic longer than any other method.

Build links by submitting to other websites. This can help you also gain higher pagerank by the search engines because they know your blogs is followed by the readers. There are several quality directories where you can submit your links and will send you traffic as well. Participate in forums and do not overlook your signature URL to leave. You can submit and post your links also in your profile on your social groups such as Facebook, Myspace and twitter.

Finally, enjoy the fun of writing and always maintain your blogs to be as motivating and useful as possible. Your objective opinions are important to your readers.
