First WordPress shut me out of multiple functions, something that’s been building over the last few days. I couldn’t even access the WP help forums and found no solace in outside forums. Deeply frustrated, I turned away and decided to make some calls.
Uh-oh. Dialing yields only a dial tone. I unplug and replug, I reboot, I turn off, I turn on. I change clothes and even re-comb my hair. Nothing. Nada. Sorry. Have a nice day.
So it was on to MagicJack live chat help – for a 53-minute long chat. That’s 53, as in fifty-three. They sent a few updates and did some remote resets. Once again there was much unplugging and replugging and even more rummaging around in Device Managers and such.
But they did it. Those sweet sweet kids in Bangladesh or wherever, fixed it. I am grateful.
So now one thing is fixed, but the WordPress problem sits there, waiting. More tries but it was just hitting a wall.
And yet here I am. Posting – because I decided to try the desktop. And voila! Everything works fine over here!
So the problem is in my laptop somewhere. And it is something beyond my ken. This may require a visit from the good Todd, he who fixes all things.
It is now four hours since I sat at my desk, four lost hours.
I’m going to have a Diet Coke.
