Computer glitches: sorry one of our blogs is down 

My apologies to anyone trying to get on to the Lucire Insider blog since the 20th. We made some modifications to the PHP in preparation for launching ’s mobile edition and, like all things technical, they did not work. We had experts do it.
   Maybe this is a self-fulfilling prophecy since I do not like nor use (exceptions apply when I am out of town and am forced to take one)—so obviously anything in my world related to them is bound to go kaput. And I have had a go at computer experts more than once on this blog.
   I’ve asked the tech guys to reverse whatever changes were made so hopefully the last year’s worth of content on the blog is still around.
   I won’t dis these chaps too hard because I really don’t know where the fault lies: our explanations, the original files provided by the cellphone guys, or the hosts themselves.
   I did have an interesting one come up last month when my office gave up the ghost. The Laptop Company kindly inspected it without charging me a dime but concluded that the motherboard had died after attempting boot-ups with new RAM and a new hard drive.
   My father, who recently turned 73, suspected a capacitor in the power supply not getting to full charge and, on that basis, proceeded to take it apart. And he got it working.
   The fault could be traced to the power supply and possibly a short in the battery.
    one point, youngsters under 30, zero.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
