Ouch! My blog is busted!

What follows is purely technical. Feel free to move along.

One of the
excuses
reasons for the dearth of posts lately is, as a direct result of my own really, really silly actions, I nearly killed my trusty MacBook pro. happily, it survived my attempts at annihilation, but has needed a lot of tender loving memory repair. It's back to normal now, with no lingering effects.

So I thought. Today I noticed many of my blog photos have lost their links. Normally, shennaninigans on my computer shouldn't affect my blog, but I do remember reinstalling Picassa, or somehow or another renaming my Picasa web albums, or some such nonsense. I think because of this, I have somehow disrupted Blogger's link to my uploaded photos and >pppopphhhfffft< failure on my old links. All the photos are still there online, but ...

Do any of you clever peeps have a clue what I'm talking about (I barely do myself!)? Can anyone offer me some guidance on how to re-establish a link? Am I raving?

Meanwhile, suddenly (and almost certainly coincidentally) I am suddenly unable to post from my computer, due to some seeming glitch within the Blogger post editor?

WTF?

I don't know about all that stuff about your pictures, but I wasn't able to post last night either because the post editor wasn't working right. I don't think the two issues were related.

I don't know if this would help: I use Windows Live Writer for all of my blogging. I create posts there, very easy to load picture, links, etc, then load them onto blogger. It is really super user friendly. Give it a try.

Blogger has been misbehaving lately a lot. Many wise people advise to keep backups of posts through the export function. Seems like a good idea to me but I haven't done it yet.
Sorry but I can't help with re-establishing links.

What did you do to you MacBookPro? Mine seems pretty hardy.

ouch... i am guesing you broke all the urls for the photos and Picassa hosts them and pushes them to Blooger...try Live writer once you back up and blogging...much better GUI
