    As I got older, I've made the rule that if I haven't fallen back to sleep in about an hour, I've got to get up. If I don't, I'm super cranky the rest of the day.

    You wouldn't like me when I'm super cranky.

    I don't even like me when I'm super cranky.

    Well, sick and cranky is an entirely different thing. When you're sick, some crankiness is allowed and expected.

    I don't have the sick part of the allowance.

    I sleep like I eat, anywhere anytime. If the opportunity presets itself, I take advantage. I love my sleep and I get far too little of it.

    You're the mother of a small person, FP. Back in the day, I was able to do that too. It's part of necessity.

    As the small persons got bigger, I got out of that habit of necessity. There are times I'd like to have it back, though.

    I don't think I could do that. I am way too sound of a sleeper. I can sleep through just about anything.

    I think you're allowance is just your natural temperment.

    Things still acting funky around here?

    So this book I'm working on--can you believe that I don't have a digital copy of it anywhere? Well, I do--on a floppy disk, but nothing reads floppy disks anymore. *sigh* I thought I had one, but obviously lost it in the virus meltdown. *sigh*

    I went through and edited the hard copy yesterday and now I'm typing it in and doing my edits as I go. And as I'm doing this, I realize that I screwed up in the very first scene. Later in the book, something is a given, yet it doesn't happen in this very first scene. Think could be a problem?

    I need more coffee.

    Yeah, people were being taken to new pages when they tried to rep. Not everyone, mind you, but a number of people.

    I didn't notice it myself.

    Well, since you're having to type it in the hard way, I would suggest that rather than a problem it's an opportunity to fix it.

    And I share your pain - I had to restart one of my books from scratch because all I had was the paper copy by that point. Tech moves too fast sometimes.

    things are still funky - the reppie windows have changed for some - but not for others.

    I think it just doesn't like you new folks, personally.




    Nah, just kidding. I'm sure it's something else.

    Yeah, that's what I'm going for. I just haven't had enough coffee to figure out what the opportunity here is yet.

    So... this would make breakfast in bed the perfect combination for you?

    Never fall asleep without first making sure all the spray paint is hidden away?




    Other than that I have no comment.

    Considering how early I'd have to get up to drive down to where you are (let alone to where FP is), no, it was not an offer.

    Just an observation.

    Sorry.

    It probably is, seeing as at least one "older" AW member is also having issues, and I think Vince was not. My pet theory is it's tied to that option box that came up when you try and double-rep someone about keeping the page from generating further dialogs, because I remember clicking that at some point...

    But that's just a theory.

    Really, someone should post it over in the tech-help section of AW. I'm not going to, because it isn't affecting me so I'd just be describing it second-hand.

    Also, because it's not affecting me, I'm only mildly curious about why it's happening.

    It hasn't kept Brian or Del from repping me, so I won't complain.
