No Rhyme.  No Reason.  Just A Thought.

No Rhyme.  No Reason.  Just A Thought.

 

Things happen. And then they don't.   No complaints from me.  Not this time.  Disappearing posts.  Photos/images there one minute and then gone the next.  Comments going AWOL.  Other things happening.  Oh, well.  

 

Some say glitches are to blame.  And perhaps that is true.  At times.  For me:  I can usually point to the source and he can be found in the mirror.  Quite frankly I prefer not to try looking at that guy.  Because if it's ActiveRain or something/somewhere else the source of the error/the misunderstanding/the issue that goes off-course is typically temporary.  And it can or can't easily be found.

 

The best solution?  Time to restart.  Reboot.  It's not just for computers, other electronic devices or things in the real world.  Take control.  Be in control. Get up. Stand up.  Walk Away.  Step aside.  The reason behind this post?  No Rhyme.  No Reason.  And as Barbara Todaro has previously said  Just A Thought.

Hello Debb Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - it's rather amazing how that screen-free time has such "healing" powers.  However it works, it's encouraged as far as I am concerned.

I agree with your words in this post, 100%, Michael!  Glitches happen almost everywhere in life, and generally they are transitory.  Move on!

I've been spending more and more time enjoying the real world and it is delightful.  The things that used to wind me up about this site don't anymore.  It just doesn't matter.  Nothing here is so important that a glitch is going to kill it.  The big takeaway is the friendships, the resources, and the networking.  No glitch ever harms that.

Chris Ann Cleland - the "real world" has countless reasons to experience, enjoy and learn from it.  You're right when the digital world side becomes overwhelming the important things take on a new significance.

Thank you for feature within the group Bartender Make It A Double.

ActiveRain does present some unwelcome challenges from time to time.

Another reason to celebrate happy hour.

Roy Kelley - ActiveRain and Happy Hour---maybe that's the reason why Chris Ann Cleland originated the group.  I think I recall reading about that beginning before but it's been so long I've forgotten.  Another round, I guess!

Sometimes even having that thought is a glitch... fleeting through my mind with me desperately chasing it before it gets away.

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR - the theory of reboot/restart in evidence along with try, try, try again.  May your day/week be glitch-free. Or as glitch-free as possible.

Michael Jacobs - Amen! You said it all succinctly and clear!

You jogged my memory. When working in Corporate America and things weren't going right, employees had to call IT. I remember now. Here's what they always did and said:

  • Listen
  • Reboot

Glitches are the witches that will never go away in Cyberland. We just adapt and try, try, again. Have a wonderful day!!!

I'm so with Chris Ann Cleland, Michael - glitches are the norm here but, spending more time in the real world is delightful indeed.

And, Ray reminds me often - when in doubt, REBOOT! It works >90% of the time!
