Oh Lordy, It's Monday

Coffee is brewing, the sound of the machine gurgling is my music. A week begins and I am sorely unprepared after four days of wedding prep, wedding party and wedding. Sketchy details are on Stranded in the South this am, posted as I waited in the Austin airport for our delayed flight. And now there's coffee, and now there's music (nothing but James McMurtry will do this morning for me), and now I shift to glass... incarnate.

Over the weekend I looked at the backup copy of my website that EZNettools provided for me a year ago. After I discovered that I had to use their little tool to build my web pages I decided to rebuild them in Dreamweaver so I would be able to manage and edit them better. Unfortunately, it looks like they don't want me to be able to do anything with the files they sent as they are not a backup of my website (which is what I asked for and what they promised to send) that can be opened in a browser--none of the links work so none of the images (or anything else) load. I have a bad word for them that I am politely refraining from saying/writing right now. Dave told me I could get a website copying/downloading software that would copy my online website to my hard drive for me. I hope so--I hope the lovely people at EZNettools haven't blocked that too. I am very unhappy with their product and at this point, their service too. I have found a couple such pieces of ware, though nothing for the Mac (as usual, *sigh*). Any recommendations out there?

Beyond the website (though it's hard to see beyond the website) are four orders that need to ship this week and a big order for the Art Institute in Chicago that goes out the end of next week--140 pieces total. Oh yes, and I have an article to write and all the how-to photos to take for it for Glass Patterns Quarterly... by Wednesday. *sigh* After that I am taking a week off. I am going to the mountains where there is no Internet access, no TV, and no hard-line phone. I'll have my cell for emergencies which is the only time they should be used anyway. I am counting the days. 2 weeks, two hours, and thirty four minutes....

Here are a couple Mac OS X programs that will download a whole web site plus images, etc.
