Technology Gives, Technology Takes

I’ve spent the last two hours wondering why gibberish characters were showing up on an English webpage both in Firefox and Internet Explorer. With my limited IT skills, I have turned to the assistance of other expert opinions and suggestions- using the Help button.

Half the fun for me in these kind of dramas are the excited fans; they farm pure gold from the tiniest of details and turn many a what-the-hell-were-they-thinking cringe-worthy moments into rewind-rewatch-repeat gems.
