I don’t know how things disappear…

Posted by jackie blue on November 16th, 2006

but my USB card reader, along with my SD card (and a number of photos) – is missing. It’s always right by computer, but now it’s nowhere to be found. I looked on the floor. I looked on computer desk shelf – in the magazine basket – in the chair cushion next to my desk. I looked in a bag of hodge podge things that I put aside to be put away for another day. It’s gone.

There hasn’t been anyone in my apartment but mom, friends, and dog walker, and I can’t see any of these people feeling compelled to swipe a stupid card reader.

So, I was going to post a photo of a long sock today, but I’m too lazy to get out the camera cables to hook it up to the computer. I’ll have to find this thing eventually, right? Good thing readers and SD cards have gotten pretty cheap – and there aren’t any incriminating photos on my card.

*UPDATE: Found it. You wouldn’t guess where.

Feeds and Sweaters

Posted by jackie blue on October 5th, 2006

It seems my feeds might be a little messed up – if you’re using Bloglines, the old feeds should be updating now but we’ll see – if you’re using any other reader – the feed in the post below (and at the RSS link in the very bottom) SHOULD be working properly – I’m actually having a bit of an error problem with that feed that’s probably server related (edit – now fixed) – but it works in Bloglines for me. I appreciate any warning of feeds not working, and I’m trying my best to rectify the situation.

In the meanwhile, there HAS been knitting around here. Maybe not enough (surely not enough!) to make it to Rhinebeck, but at least it’s something. Here we have Starsky in progress.

I’m looking forward to wearing this one, I think it’s going to be a nice warm cuddly sweater.

Speaking of Rhinebeck, it’s only 2 weeks away. How exciting is that? How FAST is this year going by?

Brand New Look

Posted by jackie blue on October 3rd, 2006

I got tired of futzing around with the design over and over till I found something I was happy with. It’s the story of my life as a designer, it’s never quite good enough. But it was time to move over to new software, so perhaps the design will keep morphing as the impulse hits.You MAY need to update your Bloglines (and other) subscriptions. The new feed is http://www.jackie-blue.com/knit/index.php/feed. And be sure to email me if anything else weird happens.

In the meantime, there’s been knitting. More on that tomorrow.

UPDATE: Your present subscriptions SHOULD work now, if all works as planned.

Comments

Seems my ISP did some server upgrading yesterday and now my comments are acting all weird. I plan on migrating to different blog software soonish but in the meanwhile, if you want to leave a comment – go ahead – you’ll get a weird error message but it WILL eventually go through.
