I had a whole entry done this evening, complete with picture to match, and it disappeared somewhere into cyber space. Some poor person in Central America, or perhaps Central Asia will suddenly find my entry and wonder who on earth Margo is. Or maybe, some time in the future it will fetch up on some other planet, and the inhabitants will try to figure out the human race from my few paragraphs, god forbid.
Actually, I am so computer illiterate that I cannot even upload pictures into my ftp space with the help of a tutorial! It's lucky I can post at all. I am quite convinced that inside my computer there are a bunch of little men who write on the screen backwards while I type(no problem because I type so slowly). When I am ready to send, they blow the words down one of the many wires I don't understand behind my computer, and as the entry emerges into cyberspace some other little men(lots and lots of them) suck really hard to download my words onto other peoples' computers.It almost sounds obscene.
I still am working on a theory about how graphics emerge and disappear.When this becomes clear to me, I'll let you know!
