Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Your patience will, hopefully, be rewarded! I got my motherboard replaced by this wonderful friend, my PC guy, DirtyBegger. He practically dropped what he was doing AND even allowed me to partial-pay for the repairs until ‘pay day’. LOL He is so good to me. DB, I sure appreciate it!
DirtyBegger, for your information, has just started his own web-hosting service, well, with a fellow web dude. They offer some extremely reasonable packages and are uber-dedicated to their work. Their site is where I am moving to, as soon as all the mini-crisis’ lighten up! LOL If you are in the market for a plan, take a look at what they offer. I believe you will see they are quite comparable. With two dudes’ heads, full of knowledge, I think they are going to be an asset to the web-design community! The website is
After you click the above link to go there, at the bottom of the page, on the right side, there is a box that tells you whether they are online or not. One of them usually is! That is wonderful, I think! You don’t have to jump through hoops to ask questions or comment, no waiting for someone to get back with you in most instances. Someone is ready and available if you present them with any issues, should they arise. It’s like walking up to a ‘window’ and having someone there to help you! I like that!
(Disclaimer: I received no compensation for this comment. I have that much faith in these guys.)
I’m not going to bother ya’ll with any drivel today. I have found some really great links for ya’ll! But, I kinda pulled an all-nighter to get this kit out, so, they can wait. Once I get some snooze-time, I will return and I’ll be more sociable. LOL
You all know the routine. Miss Edna, she is such a doll. She and I have been creating these kits since, at least, January 2011. I know it is longer – the Fall of 2010(?), perhaps – I just didn’t want to spend a bunch of time looking for dates. LOL We’ve been delayed before due to me and she is always so sweet about it, waiting patiently to post her parts with mine so that we continue in the same fashion, or, as close to a routine as possible. I know she understands, as do you folks. Some situations are just not within our control! It is a really super feeling to know that she is so understanding! Bless you, Edna! I luvs ya!
Here are my two previews. Click on the ‘elements’ for Part 3 and the ‘papers’ for part 4. Each of the two files will contain an assortment of the elements and papers, though. I know you folks have already been to Miss Edna’s. But, just in case, her preview(s) are just beneath mine. Click on them and it will take you to her blog for her two parts.

What follows is a little rant about the pc fiasco. LOL You don’t have to read on unless you just want to.
That little fiasco last week, with the lightening striking so close to my house, was just an inconvenient pile of crap! LOL It just took time. Waiting for the Provider’s service call took a day, ordering the part, then, three or four days for shipping, and, finally, the actual repairs, another day. Also, it takes time to set back up, getting everything up and running again. It wasn’t a rebuild, so, the programs didn’t have to be re-installed. However, the majority of them required a renewal of the ‘authorization’, so, that took time. Photoshop, naturally, had to be re-authorized. They are suspicious, little boogars! I was only using a copy before. Now, I own CS6 outright – thanks to my pc guy, DirtyBegger. Still, even with everything back up and running, there are ‘things’ happening that are weird. LOL I’ve had some strange messages/alerts pop up. (Things have been rather sluggish, too. Shhhhh! It might hear!) I had some programs show up that I had forgotten completely. In a way, it’s kind of like a surprise! You never know what to expect! LOL It’s all good, though. Crap happened, everything was fried, it got fixed or replaced and, wallah, I am back in ‘business’, a little worse for wear. We always manage, eh? Think about it. We always have what we need, when we need it. It may not be just what we wanted or even when we wanted it. But, I can guarantee you, we have always gotten what we ‘need’. That thought really comforts me. To say I am ‘blessed’ after the past few months’ events, would seem foolish, if not for the fact that, hey, I survived! I am alive, relatively healthy and in good spirits. Who could ask for anything more? LOL
Real quick, if any of you are members at PSD Tuts website, http://psd.tutsplus.com/, make sure you get over there and download as much of their Premium content as you can stuff on your hard drive. They were hacked about a month ago, with members’ log-in/ password info being the target. Members’ personal info was breached, so, it really angered and shook the community. This site practically preaches internet safety. A lot of long-time members left and/or, at least, gave them hell! Though they took immediate steps to stop the breach and safeguard further invasion, the damage was done. Anyone whose log-in info was in any way similar to that of their PayPal’s info, were especially urged to take preventative measures. The admin involved claimed their responsibility and, as a consolation, ALL existing members, whether active or not, will be allowed free access until early September. It is for approximately two months. If you have ever registered at PSD Tuts, get on over there and start downloading! You don’t have to do anything except log in. Be warned, too, that, when you go to log in, you will automatically have to reset your password. They ‘cancelled’ all previous log-in info for obvious reasons. Your account is still there, it just needs to be updated. When you try to log-in, you’ll see what to do. It took all of 2 minutes – if that!
Folks, I am getting ga-ga from lack of sleep. I so wanted to get this kit ready! And, now, it is. I am happy. I sure hope you all are happy, too!
Until the next time….
So, put on your best smiles, ya’ll!
