First of all, I'd like to say that I was hit with a bug -- a pg-computer bug, in that the site would not allow me to change my name back to myself (whom is all I ever really wanna be ).
So, I tempted fate and I mucked about the site, trying to change my name . . . no can do; tried to change my password . . . no can do. I finally had the brilliant idea to "deactivate" my account with the hope of reactivating it using my own name again.
Well, as you would guess . . . that one thing did work . . . well, the deactivating worked, but the reactivating did not, so I spent a few days "moonless" and "pgless", not knowing how I'd ever get back home.
I could not even bring up the petergabriel website . . . had that wonderful Internal Server Error message. Finally, last night I went into the womad site and rw site and was able to get a message through to Rich Nicholls (webmaster) and he has magically debugged me and my account.
So, all this to say, I'm back and bug-free!

Thank you so much lovely lunies (Laura, Jen and Darcy!) -- it's good to be back home -- but just as in Oz (which is my all-time favorite movie, ya know!), I never really went very far away -- I just couldn't get here.
Darcy, it's so funny that you mention the great and powerful Oz -- it's exactly what I was thinking of calling him -- see how much alike we lunies are
Glad to be back with my own name and glad to read my fellow lunies here -- know that I am with you on current events here -- even tho I am not publicly voicing it -- I'm saving up my words for another time -- like when we have a future lunie gathering -- much better use to my words then, I'm sure

Something tells me that I should have stay in quarantine for a bit longer, but hopefully my immune system will prove strong enough to get past any of the bugs that might linger here.
