For the last two weeks, my access to the web was limited to Facebook, my Gmail account and my Yahoo account. The rest of my preset pages found on my Google Chrome toolbar and saved pages were a lot harder. The error “webpage was unavailable” bothered me. Most of my bills were accessed and paid for via the apps on my phone. Being unable to write for the Examiner had me worried. Electronic gadgets were great when they worked.
This was what the Bible said about worrying:
1) Matthew 17:20 (NIV)
20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustardseed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
2) Luke 8:13-15 (KJV)
- 13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
- 14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
- 15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep, and bring forth fruit with patience.
3) Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
My smart phone had several faults one on my Facebook app and the other two with my Google account. After what happened with AT&T in mid-August, it was better to leave my smart phone alone. It took most of the afternoon to reset what AT&T had me jiggle. There were at least 157 people from Facebook and 50 contacts from Google on my phone.
At first, it only required my cleaning off the excesses on my hard drive like my history, temporary internet files and errors on the hard drive. That was the last time posting on the Examiner was possible. Last night, my brother suggested going back to the September 15 restore point on my computer when everything was in sync. My sister recommended removing both malfunctioning apps above and reinstalling them.
Thankfully Google suggested resetting the proxy server by deselecting the automatic detection function through the LAN settings on the computer. A check-in notice from the above site in my inbox this morning prompted a support ticket explaining the problem, was sent via my smart phone.
Luckily, it only took two tries getting my internet back up and running. This was my second article written today. If my access was still good next week, the support ticket will have been closed on Examiner’s site.Those three scripture above helped curtail my worries.
