I've got a question: When I go to "update journal"....
The year is set for 2000.
When I forget to manually change it, I get a polite message asking if I really want to upload a post that far back. wtf?
Does anyone know why the default year would be whacked?
I don't know if it has something to do with the clock/calendar on this little what-ever-it-is-Tim-loaned me, would it?

The Bassez express vroomed it's way to IKEA tonight after work. It was a farkin' zoo in there. Do people bring cranky screaming children to crowded stores for any particular reason? Can someone explain that fuck'd up logic to me? By the time we'd rolled up to the cashier with our loot, we were ready to stuff the little shits into display cabinets. Among other things, I bought a King Size Swedish chocolate bar that is uber yummy! And a whole bunch of shit on my credit card that should have been put toward an over-priced lap top but instead I bought a cool square plate, two "shelves" and two "tables" [ kinda needed them] now I have to put them all together

Thank you so much ms_nerd!!! *muah!!!*

I had the same problem too, and I couldn't fix it. I ended up getting a new LJ. I hope you get it figured out though, and you could try posting in hints_help, someone over there might be able to help you. Good luck, and let me know if you get any answers, I'd like to know what this is that completely screwed me over. Ugh. ( Can you tell that I'm still angry? lol)

*Yikes!* You had to get a completely new LJ?!?
That's kinda scary. I don't wanna do that.
::lower lip begins to wibble::
I'll definitely post any and all result.

::pets:: a completely new LJ?...dude, that's just not right.

If you have the same issue on other PCs/Macs/machines? I would actually put in a trouble ticket with LJ. Hints_help is cool, but it's just us, random folk answering questions as we/they are able. If it's really a permanent problem with your LJ, you should get LJ to help with it. Certainly before you do anything drastic like get a new journal!

You're a Mac girl, right? Has Tim loaned you another Mac (in which case I'll be of no use whatsoever--I suck at the Mac thing), or is it a PC laptop? If it's PC, I can walk you through checking the date and stuff.

You're right, I am a mac girl but Tim lent me an little old PC. I never had this problem on my iMac or on the PC's at work. I'm thinking it might have something to do with the computer itself and not LJ - I have a sinking suspicion that my cat hit something when she jumped on the keyboard one of the first times I had lj open.
She had to check out the new appliance dontchaknow.
Anyway, tt's really not that big a deal if the date's wrong, I just have to remember to change it whenever I write a post.
But, all that said and done, if you're willing to talk this PC-challenged brain of mine through some tests, I'm game. :o)

Weird with the date thing, man. I hope you find a solution or chrismm can give you a hand, because I have no idea what the problem might be.

However, I *can* help with assembling IKEA furniture, if assistance is required!! I put together a computer desk for Lori and only had to disassemble and reassemble it ONCE! *g*

I'm going to have to throw myself at the mercy of chrismm and her IT brilliance.

As for IKEA assembyage. Believe it or not, I'm a whiz at it. But thanks for the offer. :o) Stuff should be up and usable when you come a'callin'.
