Hi, everyone. Just a quick post made from work to let you know that I'm currently unable to access the internet at all from home. This just happened last night. I suspect a particularly nanny-like security program called Zone Alarm is to blame. It seems to have arbitrarily decided that our internet browsers (both IE and Firefox) are some kind of threat and won't allow us to connect to them.

Of course, this had to happen when my husband is away and I don't dare just ininstall the program because I suspect it's one of these ones that leaves things behind in the file registry that have to be removed by hand (and very carefully indeed. Can't even access the Zonelabs user forum to see if anyone there has had a similar problem.

My husband is back tonight and I'm keeping my fingers crossed he'll be able to sort it out quickly but it depends how late he gets back and what sort of mood he's in unfortunately.

Obviously, this means no update today but I'm hoping normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

:Waves gloomily:

And that signals my nite-nite. See? Told you I wait up for your post. Unfortunately for the both of us, it's not the next chapter of COA. **pouts**

See you in the wee smalls tomorrow, hopefully.

Fortunately, it turned out to be not so bad after all.

I'm beginning to feel like the boy who cried wolf and yet this stuff is really very frustrating when it happens.

Oh crap, not again. I fear that Zone alarm is going to have to be binned!

Oh dear, I've just paid a visit to the Zonelabs forum. Looks like this bloody piece of software has mucked a few folk around too.

Makes me even more glad I'm on a Mac.

Don't suppose you saw anything useful there, did you, Sue? If so, please share. I daren't be caught posting to this LJ at work (especially not in view of the graphics) but I'm signing into the other one now and am going to request info about the bloody thing on an open post there.

Seems some folk can't uninstall it or all they get is a blue page. Nobody so far has reported a problem just like yours yet.

I've left an open message on my lj about you're problems with a link to your request for advice on your lj. Hopefully that may help things along a wee bit.

does hubby even know how many ppl all over the world are crossing fingers now for his early return and rely on his technical skills?

In the end, I didn't have to bother him - at least, not yet.

*hugs* Computers are both annoying and really cool. Hope that you get it sorted, hate think of going wuthhout your for too long. But hey, at least you can post from work.... *hugs in case they have to hold you for longer*

This sums it up perfectly. I'm beginning to feel a bit bad that every time I post to say I'm not going to be able to post because something's gone horribly wrong I then end up posting not long afterwards anyway.

Not doing it on purpose - honest.

Tell your hubby that there are a bunch of women staring desperately at him with tear-filled puppy dog eyes and quivering bottom lips who are depending on him to get them their next dose of CoA before they go into withdrawal.

Sorry about the computer problems. It's so frustrating having to deal with them sometimes.

It is - and though mine seem to be over again for the moment, I've a feeling Zone Alarm isn't finished with me yet. We'll see.

Anyway, I managed to post in the end after all.

I suspect this is some diabolical failsafe that Wesley had up his sleeve. When you reconnect you will find him out of the tank again!

Seriously, best of luck with the software - we who are desperately awaiting more CoA salute hubby!

Eee! I hope not! Anyway, the blooming thing decided to start working again by itself so I've updated now.

He didn't need to in the end. It decided to work again by itself (no idea why) so I've updated after all.

This is the Gods, horribly aware that CoA is going to end soon, trying to spin it out as long as possible.

I'm so sorry you're having problems, Deb. I had Zone Lab at one point and it caused problems so we uninstalled it. Unfortunately, neither of us can remember exactly what the problems were. Hopefully your husband will be able to sort it out.

There's not much point to this post except to wish you all the luck. Today's update is much missed and I'm sure you miss browsing your flist. Fingers crossed you'll be back on line very soon.

Thanks, Kitty. I managed to post when I got home after all. Dunno if you've noticed yet.

The blithering thing had decided to work while I was out. Have no idea why and no idea why it didn't work this morning.

Not a good sign but at least the update is up.

Hey Deb, sorry to hear about your 'pooter problems. I can totally sympathize.

Read an entry on Darker_Spike that your Coming of Age fic is finished. I for one would love to read it - maybe get some ideas for some manips and fakes. Thanks! :)

Deb.

Hi, there. I'm signed in on my other LJ. I'm a great admirer of your work so thrilled to hear you want to read the story.

I'll friend you and then you can read the entries whenever you want (it's a very long story).

The computer is mostly behaving itself at the moment, thanks. :Crosses fingers:

Hi. I wasn't quite sure how else to contact you so sorry that this is irrelivant to your post. I've been overseas and then in hospital so haven't been on the net for ages. I popped into this site to see if anything had been updated re. the follow up story of Coming of Age but I can't see any of the Coming of Age story postings, only your general postings. I was friended by you and have read the whole story but am wondering if somehow I am locked out. I have been so looking forward to the sequel and desperately need something to read. HELP!

Hi there. Signed in on my other LJ and sorry to have been so long answering.

I'm sorry to hear you've been in hospital. I hope you're okay now? As regards the CoA sequel, you haven't missed anything. I'm afraid I'll still writing it and this LJ hasn't been updated for a while consequently. It will appear here eventually, if I manage to finish it.

As for suggesting something for you to read, if you haven't read any other of my stories, you can find a link to my website on my user info page. Also, if you liked CoA, you might like [livejournal.com profile] shylahmask's story The Grey Area. It's a WIP but I think she will definitely finish it.

Hello. Signed in as Glassdarkly now. I just went and checked the friends list for this LJ and you aren't on it. Did you defriend the LJ by accident because I did defriend some people who'd defriended me a while back.

Also, from what I understand, LJ has been randomly defriending people on various LJs so maybe you've been a victim of that? I'll refriend you and if you refriend this Lj you'll be able to see the fic postings again.

Date: 2007-07-11 02:58 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] spikestoy.livejournal.com
Thanks petal, all sorted now. I didn't defriend you so must have been LJ.

Thanks for the fic recommendation, I will get right on it! ;)

Hi Deb!

I wanted to let you know that I am back on LJ. I’m keeping a pretty low profile, but I do plan to post a couple manips at [livejournal.com profile] decade_of_spike, and I am very much looking forward to Age of Unreason. Friend me, please?

I hope you are well and happy.

Hi Danna. Nice to see you back. I'd seen the name on Sue's LJ and hoped it was you.

Of course I'll friend you back. Do you want to friend the Shapinglight LJ also or just this one?

Looking forward to your posts on Decade of Spike.

From: [identity profile] danna7001.livejournal.com
I would love to also friend [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight as long as it’s okay with you if I don’t comment frequently (except to fic). I always want to know when you have written something, and I do enjoy reading your other posts, but I am trying to be careful to keep things on a level that feels manageable to me. I know you understand that because we talked about it briefly after I deleted my last LJ.

Sure. Will friend you. Advise you to read the original story, Coming of Age, before you read the new one or it won't make much sense.
