A Scary and Sad Warning!

To all our friends,

Our dear friend Asta had a scare when most of the pictures disappeared from her blog (almost two years worth!) You can read about what happened here! One of the charming things about Asta and her mom are the lovely pictures they share with us on their blog. When all of their hard work disappeared, Asta's mom was ready to give up and quit blogging. We and a bunch of their friends wrote comments begging them to stay. They listened and calmed down and are looking forward to the future. But, they have only their memories of the pictures that were lost.

We are so glad that they've decided to stick around, because the blogosphere wouldn't be the same without Asta and her wonderfully sophisticated New York adventures.

We just wanted to post this warning, in case any of you who are on Blogger like us are nearing your photo storage capacity (the percentage that shows on the bottom of the screen when you upload a picture.) Ours is at 8%, so we guess we're okay for quite awhile!

Anyway,

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY
TO THE
U.S.A !

I am so glad that Asta decided to keep with the blogging, I sure would have missed her.
Happy Fourth to all at your place!

Boy ... that would be depressing! But heck .. sometimes a clean slate is a good time to change directions and try a different path!

Thanks for the warning ... I'll heck my total too, but I suspect it is not too bad yet.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention...I had no idea there was a photo storage capacity! How sad to lose precious photos:(

The case of the missing photos, how terrible. She didn't have them also on her computer somewhere?

It did sound like she had most of them on her hard drive, but there is no way to upload them all at one time. She would have to go into each of the 700 posts and upload the pictures individually. People can see the posts, just not the pictures that go with them.

Yikes, what a tragedy! I can't imagine having to look for photos to match 700 posts :(

WOW, we read Asta's blog too, and Mom loves looking at the pictures of NYC! That is terrible that she can't get her pics back?

We are very happy that Asta decided to keep on blogging and create new wonderful memories! It is a god idea to reduce your picture size considerably when uploading to blogger, this way you won't reach the limit of your free storage for many many years...
