By George, I Think I’ve Got It!

14 Jun

If I’m right, when I publish this post, you will see a You Tube video of me singing the South African National Anthem in five languages.  I wanted to show it in this post, celebrating the first year of the 101/1001 challenge, but technical problems stopped me.

You can thank the Hub – and blame him: he fixed the problem, by re-installing IE9; but he caused the problem in the first place, by doing something with the browser that shouldn’t be done; but I don’t know what it was, so I can’t tell you.  He says it wasn’t him, it was Internet Explorer; but he would say that, wouldn’t he?

All I know is, the Hub is back in his rightful place: the wrong; and I can upload videos again.

Expect a rash of posts with all the videos I’ve been dying to share, which I couldn’t, because, the Hub says, of Internet Explorer.

I suppose I ought to apologise to WordPress, because they insisted it was my browser and I insisted it wasn’t, because the Hub is infallible on computer stuff.  Which, he says, is correct; because it wasn’t him, it was Internet Explorer.

Talking of internet problems, if you are a fan of Pseu (and if not, why not?), she is having WordPress problems and cannot access her blog. 

All WordPress bloggers are having the WordPress problem of being unable to access the techies to ask for help, so I posted a request on the forum to which WordPress steered me, but there was only one response, with advice which Pseu followed, but that didn’t work.

I wonder if there’s any way I can pin it on the Hub?

        Strange, because it works here.

        I’m not kidding – am dying to see it – maybe it’s my stupid computer – will try again!

    Yeeha – it opened up and I saw you – wonderful and hilarious. No, sorry, just wonderful. You certainly have guts and a great voice – hehe – and an even better laugh! Fyi it took my computer many minutes to view this so do you think I need a new computer?
    Love you Tilly! You make me laugh every single day! Juliexxx

    I also have had problems when writing a new post..but I thought that it was me

    I tried to watch your video but due to poor internet it came in bits and pieces so I did not get to hear it all in one go..but what I heard was good…

      If you let it play in bits and pieces until it’s through, once, then replay it, it will be whole. (I have poor Internet service, too.)


  5. The Wanderlust Gene June 14, 2012 at 13:23 #

    Played without interruption right to the end … Bravo Tilly:)

    And they STILL haven’t fixed the glitch where I type everything perfectly and then when I click the “publish” button, misspellings fall into it. Grrr! 😉

    That was great Tilly! You stayed on key the whole time and that is hard to do, your laugh is lovely. I’m with you about the Hub, if he hadn’t touched the Internet Explorer the first time… The balance has been reset, you’re in the right and the male is in the wrong. All’s right with the world.Don’t tell the Hub I said that.

    now I am afraid to click on your video because it might lead to problems with WP. So far so good. No problems with WP so far!!!


  10. Gobetween June 14, 2012 at 18:19 #

    Well done!!!


  11. Food Stories June 14, 2012 at 18:29 #

    Loved the video … You were amazing 🙂


  12. Hattie June 14, 2012 at 19:39 #

    Works fine for me way over here in Hawaii!

    Worked first time for me. I use Firefox as my Browser, Elly tells me not to use IE,

    You were terrific, well done for singing all the way through. A special thanks to the camera man, the zooming skills gave added interest.;)

    Well you are good. I’m not so hot at all the languages

    Hi Tilly, I can play your video here no problems, so go you! 😀
    Unfortunately, I’m having extreme problems with WordPress at the moment, other sites are fine – it seems I’m not alone…

    Of course I had to listen to each audio. I like yours it brought tears to my eyes. You must sing in your church choir. Good show. Dianne

    Very appropriate too as today June 14 is Flag Day here in the States.

    Oh, dear….hope wordpress aren’t going down the tubes. I need my posts! Lovely voice you have there, Tilly 🙂


  19. eof737 June 15, 2012 at 02:53 #

    Lady, you have a great singing voice. I enjoyed it thoroughly! 🙂 Did Pseu send an email to Support@Wp? She can try that and a reply will be sent.

    Only if hub works for WordPress!


  21. barb19 June 15, 2012 at 09:28 #

    It played fine for me all the way through Tilly, and I think you did a fantastic job of singing the South African National Anthem – you are very brave – and I love your smile!


  22. siggiofmaine June 16, 2012 at 22:49 #

    WoW ! I am impressed ! I can’t carry a tune in a bag,… thanks for sharing.
    As for the hub, you have your version and just say…”My story and I’m sticking to it !”
    Thanks…came over loud and clear.
