The PC gods are not so lenient. I tried downloading the stuff recommended by more IT-savvy LJ-ers, but just get messages saying 'error in downloading; file does not exist'.
I guess my publishing 'aspirations' are on hold. Maybe it's something to do with this being a 1998 Time Machine that's been cranky from day one. Don't know, don't care at the moment. Gonna watch that thing on TV about impending killer heatwaves and put the frighteners on myself.
