Like a toddler after a morning full of physical activity or a college student after finals week?
No, an ill-timed crash.
Like what my blood sugar does when I try to be coherent after too much starch, not enough protein/fat, and a long interval without nutritional intake?
No, a precipitous crash.
Like the stock market in those typical, yet thankfully seldom, fall incidents of market correction?
No, an abrupt crash.
Like the crash of my dear offspring driving our family car into my sister’s vehicle, innocently parked and not deserving the mangling it received?
No, that was more of a crunch than a crash. Besides, no one was hurt. Whew.
This was an uncontrollable crash. Spontaneous. Unexpected. A nasty surprise. A headlong disappearance into the ether of ones and zeros. My website completely and repeatedly vanished. The internet swallowed my keystrokes, words, and links, leaving my site with a binary blank.
Without berating my technological incompetence any further,
Or describing my sad review of correctly installed plugin, authenticated route to cloud storage, appropriate file for storage – and my dismay at the completely empty back up file?!
Or detailing the patience of my web guru as he scoured, repaired, and reloaded, while I tangled and wrangled with his instructions,
I concede defeat.
To those who planned to access my Bible study videos from this website (otherwise, check YouTube for the Bible on the Bluff videos to accompany the study guides),
To those who read my blogposts,
And mostly to my website guru who patiently corrects my (partially self-induced) messes.
My question to the internet ether:
What are you doing swallowing my website whole?!
Your regurgitation of said contents would be most appreciated. You don’t need to explain why you did it. No questions asked. Just give it up and leave me alone. Cease and desist with your electronic messing of my stuff.
