Well, as you can no doubt see, I have found the picture for the top of this page, yay. It was thanks to the amazing Web Archive
which preserves old websites, saving our history and saving lazy people like me from going and turning on the other computer that's about 3 feet away from them and searching it's harddrive for a picture.
Of course, if I'm giving this blog love again, at some point I should try to find the header graphic and restore it, it was saved on my NTL webspace, but I must have it on my old PC somewhere I'm sure.
Okay, I haven't gone yet, I clicked on a random entry and did remember it, Cauliflower cheesecake
yes, I remember the joy of rewriting think of a world, and the excellent line "We thank you Lord for cauliflower cheesecake." Oddly though, I'd completely forgotten that I'd changed more than just the last word of each line, I didn't remember that it wasn't always think of a world, we'd obviously put a lot more thought into it than I remember.
Right, really now I will turn off the computer and go to bed. I didn't ever intend to start doing this you know, I just came down and realised the laptop was still on, I opened it to shut it down and got sucked in, curse you computer for making me blog this way.
Interesting, having set up the archives to work properly, I went back to read some of my early postings. Helen is right, reading them has an odd feeling as you don't remember much of what's written about ever happening. Is this really my blog? Now I've read it I kind of remember it, but maybe the blog is implanting false memories.
Also, I discovered an html error in my second posting which meant that two paragraphs were missing as it thought they were still part of the target as I hadn't ended the quotation marks, oops. I have now rectified the mistake, it's 5 and a half years late, but better late than never. Anyone who's spent the last 5 years wondering what I was playing can now find out, aren't you relieved? There also seem to be a lot of spelling mistakes and typos, did I not spell check this back in the day?
Why am I still doing this at 1:45am? It is unlikely anyone will read this and if someone did stumble across it, why would anyone care?
Aha, so I can't have my archive page again as Blogger apparently stopped doing that a couple of years ago. Well, I don't remember them consulting me. Anyway, at least now I should have some archives available, but no descriptions, I'm not going through putting them all in again, so it'll just be pot luck if anyone (and by anyone, it's probably only me) wants to read any of them.
Helen told me my blog was sad and dying. So I figured I'd think about posting, came to have a look and now I'm depressed because for some reason the archive isn't working anymore. Where did the lovely page go that I spent ages putting descriptions of the archives on? At some point they've evidentally altered the way archiving occurs, but I wasn't paying any attention. It seems to have automatically turned on creating a page for each blog entry, but why isn't the archive link working? I don't know, I'm sad :-(
