A lot of you will have seen D's posts about what happened to our household account two days ago. Ouch, a lot!|
We, however, have seen what happened in the Interwebs when Diane let people know about it, and...
And, well, thank you all. I thank you, D thanks you and Mr Goodman the White Cat thanks you. (Brush off the shed fur in your own time.)
It was a straight-up fraud, so we WILL be recompensed by the bank ("in due course", as they say, which could mean all sorts of things.) You helped, more than helped, to get us out of a potential yawning hole.
Appreciated. A lot.
More later, and if I can get Calibre working properly, a story. Meanwhile, a good night's sleep for the first time in three days.
G'night - and thank you all.
WE shall look forward to the new story from you.
Found this late, glad it's all been patched up. Hope you slept well.
Quoting Sherlock!JohnWatson... "Oh God, yes!"
Then got up, made tea, scritched cat, shaved, showered, drank tea and wrote more than 5,000 words on the Christmas present typewriter. With only...9 typos. Wow.
I still have those pages on my desk, trying to puzzle out why so few. My guess is that good reflexes - mine - can catch an oopsie keystroke on a mechanical keyboard, but an electronic one has already made the link. BACKSPACE!
The story is proceeding well, too. :D
Word processor software is sometimes too forgiving and at other times too strict. Typewriters...are their own kind of beast, no?
