Got disk space?

There seems to be a recurring problem happening with followers of this, and I'm sure other, blogs and websites that require quite a bit of temporary disk space on your computer to view them. Here's a cry for help:

"I'm really enjoying being subscribed to SHH's blog but now every time I go to her blog my computer goes crazy. When I X out of her blog IE7 for some reason tries to reopen it in not 1 but 8 tabs simultaneously. The weird thing is it only happens with her blog and no one elses. At first I thought I must be hitting a button somewhere or something, but now I just think my computer is obsessed with SHH..."

Unfortunately, this is not the only reader this has happened to; I have heard from several and just got another message this morning that it happened to another poor soul. Having to shut your computer totally down is such a pain, especially when all you wanted to do was read your daily blogs.

Here is the solution, and I hope this helps. A friend's dear husband took the time to figure out the problem and point us all in the right direction...thanks!

This is Snail Mail's husband. I took a look at it and found that the problem was that the amount of disk space allowed for temporary Internet files was set too low for my wife's computer. Some of these web pages need a lot of temporary file storage and this PC was running out of space in the temporary folder. I adjusted the setting and it took care of the problem. If you want to try this you can go to "Tools" on the menu bar. From there go to "Internet Options" and look for the "Temporary Internet Files" section and select "Settings". From there you can adjust the amount of space allowed for temporary files. I have this one set for 2000 MB but you can probably get away with something smaller like 300 MB if you don't have much disk space. Hope this helps.

Thanks and hugs to all who are reading and enjoying both of my blogs! As you probably know, I am having way too much fun...way more than I thought I would. Who knew writing could be so enjoyable?

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…


I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.

So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
