Gloating..a little..

This isn’t even worth writing a whole post on, but I am too excited to not mention it. I was going through Miss Lobo’s blog last night when I accidentally clicked on the box.net widget. It asked me to fill in my email address and password and what do I discover the next second? I had opened myself a box.net account. There was a minor problem with that- I didn’t know what box.net was!!! To figure that out I went to my trusted guru, google, read up a bit and realized I hadn’t made a grave error by opening an account with them.  On an experimental basis I uploaded a few pics and songs and then spent 2.5 hours desperately trying to link what I had uploaded on box.net to my blog. By mid night I was too tired to care and threw in the towel. Today morning I sent Ms.Lobo a congratulatory note expressing how impressed I was with her skills at using information technology. I asked another friend for an explanation to the failure message I was getting each time I tried to link box.net and wordpress. He explained, I couldn’t follow a word. 

 As I sat fidgeting with box.net and wordpress again tonight, I wasn’t expecting any miracles-  I was imply idling time. As is always the case, when you least expect it, things happen. And just like that, while I was working without a plan or aim, I managed to figure out what I was doing wrong last night. I  tried add a picture to my blog and succeeded. Then I tried a song. That worked too!! Who says accidental learning doesn’t occur?!!  

Sadly, I realized both a pic and a song cant be displayed simultaneous on this widget (wow! My vocabulary really is expanding. Not only am I using this word, I also know what it means! yay!). Or can they? I donno, may be they can but to find that out I will have to spend another couple of hours fiddling with box.net!!
