The Monster Is BACK!

I had a most terrible thing happen to my blog!
A monster took over total control!!
The it left!
Now it is back!
The mom isn't going to work for me today!
She said stick a fork in her, she is so done!
Cannot upload at all!!
When trying to post most of the time I loose my stuff!
HELLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPP!

Following Posted Friday
I have been having trouble with my postings and making changes on my sidebar since the mom stupidly added a counter to my place! When I tried to make changes in my layout the blogger monster wouldn't save them nor would it let me post. And my counter, arghhhhhh, she left my htlm code at their place and when we went back to see if we could get rid of it we fond that isn't wasn't something that we could do at their palce. I couldn't do it at my place as it wasn't showing up in my layout thingie as a widget! Many of you don't know it but my mom is pretty dangerous when it comes to the computer. She know just enough about things to get us into a lot of trouble at times.

I was in a panic as it seemd that the blog was in control of something not living in my house. It was affecting the other blogs that I needed to go into and make changes. We were stuck until the dad came home and the mom was getting more upset by the minute, I cannot even tell you how upset I was. The mom was mumbling and saying that we could be done. She wasn't going to start over with a new blog if we had to at this point. Arghhhhhhhhhh!

She was sending frantic emails out to friends this morning asking for help. When things looked the darkest, she was getting ready to walk away from the computer, she went back in and just started clicking on things. I think the blogger knew he was messing with a force not to be reckoned with and has fled my place. Yeahhhhhhh! The mom with her mighty sword slayed the counter monster and it is forever gone, never to darken my place again. I have put my paws down and said NO MORE COUNTERS!

Thanks to my sweet friends that had a slew of panic emails going to their place today. I appreciate all of the helpful advise that you sent back to me.

Pheeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww! I need a long nap now!!

Oh my! What a terrible enCOUNTER!
Yes, some of them come embedded with all kinds of crap. Others are perfectly legitimate, though.

I'm so sorry that those stupid monsters invaded you, but happy that everythings all right again.

And especially happy that I can comment! Thanks.

Oh Gracie I wish I had seen your email sooner - I am not sure if I could have helped but I am glad you were able to post - I would be crushed if you stopped blogging!

I would still see if someone in the help forum could take a look at your code and make sure it is ok - and if you need a counter, let me know because the site I use is ok and it is a gadget, not in the main HTML.

Oh I wish I was there now to comfort you and hold your paw - this had to be stressful on you and your mom!!

Sending lots of comforting purrs and smooches!

Barney!

Oh no, the horrible internets its full of awful potholes. So glad you made it through. My mom is so scared of lots of things on the internets since she started using pc's she just downloads and uses nothing unless it's been ok by either my computer savvy dad or uncle. Be careful out there we wouldn't want you to stop blogging your such a huge part of the community!

The Meezers and Billy said...

Busby and Raymond said...

Sounds like you had a close ENcounter of the yucky kind!

Glad you are back up and running. Happy Friday, xoxo.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, Gracie, we are so sorry we missed your emails. What a panic situation you had there. We are so glad your mom persevered. We would be terribly sad if you left blogging.

We have a great widget counter. Never had any problem with it. We're sorry this happened to your mom!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Wacky widgets...mewmie says she doesn't understand enough about computers to fill a thimble and that she is just happy when it is working every morning!

Hoshi said...

Remington said...

Not good....I am happy it got all better for you. Now you can rest easy....

Melvin the Teacup Himalayan said...

I'm glad that you were able to blog.
The HTML is getting more and more difficult to get right on Blogger, isn't it? I've been having a ton of problems, too!
Also, make sure that you replace all of the ' with ". That's one thing that Blogger is especially picky about.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Our mom is da same way, she knows just enuff to mess effurything up...

OMC!! We are so happy you have such a smart mummy!!

Brian said...

It pays to keep a close eye on things, my first two blogs were hijacked by porno pirates...yuck, and I had to start all over. We are glad Mom got it under control. Have a great weekend sweet friend!

Alasandra said...

We are glad you got rid of the monster. We gets in trouble like that to cause of our Mommy. She accidentally downloaded a BAD VIRUS, luckily our Dad was able to fix it but now we don't have as much computer time cause he is still fixing the huge mess she made. ~AFSS

Eric and Flynn said...

We are glad your mum slayed the monster and got everything sorted out again. We remember reading on someone's blog last year that one particular counter was causing all sorts of problems and they were advising anyone who had it to get rid of it. Unfortunately we can't remember where we read it or which counter it was.

Harry Spotter said...

Glad you fixed it. You never know when you download html what it will do. We are still having problems just commenting on everyone's blog. Mom's computer is still not working, so I have to use dads which is slow and hangs doesn't pull up some of the blogs. Technology! Have a good weekend!

meowmeowmans said...

That sure sounds like a scary monster! WE're glad it is gone now, and that you're back in action. :)

The Island Cats said...

Gracie...we don't know much about these computer thingeys...and our mom knows even less than we do! We hope everything is okay with your blog now!

Karen Jo said...

I am glad that your Mom slew the evil counter monster. I have had one on Kitty Limericks for coming up on three years without problems, but you never know.

Sniffie said...

How skeery! Mom wants to make some changes to our blog and isn't sure how to do it. We're afraid she is going to mess it up.

Cory said...

Gracie I'm so glad the monster is gone. My mom tried all sorts of gadgets and it made my blog slow and hard for kitties to comment on so they are all gone now.

Hansel said...

we've been getting our counters from the same place for almost 12 years now. Mom says they might not be the most beautiful- but, they're safe! let mom know if you're interested in knowing where to get it!

Hansel said...

Our official thank you note:

Thank you so much for all the purrs and prayers for our little hansel. It means the world to us- and we truly believe that with everyone in the cb - it's how we got through all of this. We don't know what we'd do without everyone! Hansel is doing very well - walking around, but we did have to put his cone on- as he thinks he should eat his sutures. He is eating, taking meds, drinking, using the litter box, everything is fantastic!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

-mom bean,
and the whole gang!

Grrreta said...

Aaaaak! We are very sorry your blog was attacked by an evil counter.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

THE MONSTER IS BACK! IT WON'T LET ME UPLOAD PHOTOS TODAY OR TONIGHT!! I THINK HE IS WINNING AND WE WILL LOOSE! ARGHHHHHHH!

meemsnyc said...

Oh man, that sounds horrible. Glad the blog monster is gone.

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Glad that the 'ol blog monster is gone and your Moms is back in control!

Woofs and Kisses!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh no I can't believe it is back - go to the forum and see if they can help - otherwise I say export the blog, then change the name just slightyly (and let everyone know) and then import the blog there. My guess is that the info you entered on the site keeps bringing it back there, and when you visit it is a problem.

The Island Cats said...

Hi Gracie...you aren't a Colts fan by any chance, are you?? ;-)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Noooooooo!

We came by to let you know our Cameron gave you an award today. But it will be there whenever you can pick it up.

Anya said...

Take it easy Gracie

Take care .....
(We hate also those monsters !!!)

Hugs Kareltje =^.^=

CCL Wendy said...

Well, I'm glad your Mom finally slew the monster once and for all.
What a terrible problem to enCOUNTER!

Harry Spotter said...

Computer monsters are terrible. One has taken control of mums laptop and it wont let go. Hang in there. Love the new look!

Sammy and Andy said...

Those computer gremlins can really cause havoc with our blogs.....we are happy that your mom finally slayed the gremlin. She might want to look at the counter we have on our blog.....it is a widget. We've had it for months and have had no problem with it. xxxxxxxxxxx

Danielle said...
