Current News

So, the hard drive in my lap top went south, and I lost a whole bunch of stuff I had collected to use on the various sites here at shirleytwofeathers.com. It was pretty traumatizing! Here’s the litany of loss:

  • My collection of over 100 hilarious memes that I hadn’t had time to share on Meme City yet … gone.
  • More than 60 coloring pages saved for the Coloring Pages … gone.
  • I had so many cool animated gifs… so many… now gone.
  • I had a very extensive collection of tiny icons that I use to make the templates for the mini sites … gone.
  • The templates for all the current mini sites …. gone.
  • The back up for the current static web pages … gone.
  • Seamless backgrounds for templates and web pages … I did manage to save some of them, but most of them are gone.
  • Collected information on mantras and meditation practices … gone.
  • All the pictures and information I had saved for next years projects on The Prosperity Project … gone.
  • My downloaded music … gone…. all of it… gone.

And then there’s the confusion factor. I did have a bunch of stuff saved from 2 years ago. But it wasn’t organized at all. Instead it was mixed in with stuff from 5 years ago… and beyond. So, it’s not simple anymore to know what images I’ve used and which ones I haven’t used… which tweaks my OCD in a major way because God Forbid !! I use the same picture on the same mini site twice!!

What does this all mean for the website?

Well, it means that I will have to painstakingly recreate each mini site template in order to update the sites for 2018… which means I will have to go on long exhausting searches for icons and background images… the same goes for the static web pages…. which means it will be a while before I get up the nerve and the energy to update any of them…. which means that I won’t be fixing the glitchy news feed banners anytime soon.

On a positive note!

So there is a very tiny … very slender … silver lining to all this. And that is… hmmmm…. and that is… wait, I’m thinking… something will come to me… I’m sure… Oh! OK!

On a positive note, I still do have a bunch of stuff on all my blogger blogs that need to be moved. I can still post like crazy on all the little mini sites. I did have a great reservoir of information saved over the years. And I have a library of books… and a brain… and my google search engine works just fine.

Also, interestingly… my bulging folder of cat stuff came through intact! How fun is that! I guess you could say it wasn’t a CATastrophe. LOL.
