Yesterday was a wake up call for me.
I was at work, checking on some articles and the next thing I knew there was a big blank white screen with the words, PAGE CANNOT BE ACCESSED or ARTICLE NOT AVAILABLE. I backed up and tried again. Over and over I tried until even backing up gave me the same message. I thought I crashed the computer at work or worse, killed Gather.
I piddled around at work and tried several attempts to log into Gather and much to my dismay I still couldn't get on. I started to panic. What would I do without Gather?
Last night I watched a little TV, visited with our daughter and granddaughter. When they left I decided again to check Gather. I could get onto the homepage but all the pictures and icons were gone along and I was still unable to get into articles. I freaked out.
After moving over to BT and playing around and chatting with others there, I realized my addiction to Gather is worse than I thought. I don't know what I would do if this site ever closed. I mean, I love BT and all but Gather is my 'main squeeze'. I love Gather. I had Gather withdrawals and they were not pretty. I accepted the fact that Gather is, I guess, my drug of choice.
This morning I was almost afraid to turn on the computer. 'What if Gather still isn't up and running?' 'What if something happened and it can't be fixed?' The 'What If's' were running rampant through my head. Imagine the thrill I got when I logged in and Gather was back to her ol' normal self. Well, so far anyway (for me). I hope it's working okay for all of you.
How did you handle yesterday? Am I the only one that had major withdrawals? Happy Gathering!!!!
Now if this article publishes, I'll be on cloud nine. Have a Happy Day.
