Can't find my links!!!

Am away till the 28th Feb or 1st March...had a look on my blog on the Internet cafe and it seems to have eaten my links hope its not someone mucking about with my computer at home. For some reason people seem to turn on my computer when I am away from home and I come back to find settings changed. I am pleased that people stay at the house because its out of town and better than coming back to a house emptied of all its goodies...but even though people have their own computers they seem to turn mine on as if its public property.

I think next time I go away I will put a lock on that door. I feel and no doubt the rest of you feel like this, but I feel that when they go into that room where I have all my personal stuff, letters from mum and dad and everything private, that it is an invasion of my privacy. Why when they have the whole house to roam in would people assume to do this. I am a bit angry really and am going to have to deal with that when I get back.

Re the blog... I choose what to post and am well aware its an open book but thats the choice I make. I just do not understand that quite a few people these days have no idea of boundaries. Everyone I know has a computer just about and as my house is only being used every few days for a night...its got me beat why they would need to turn on my computer...

I just love getting messages while I am away that the computer is refusing to shut down and wanting to go through some process (which I can't see because I am a few hundred KMS away...but which I know doesn't sound good) and then knowing that its likely there will be problems with it when I get home.

It can't just be me who finds this sort of behaviour rude... Melissa and Alison were really amazed and wanted to know what sort of people would do this... there are 2 types of people I told them...those who would never do this without express permission and those who wouldn't even think they had to ask...

When I get home I am going to slap passwords on everything as its an open slather the way I have it...aaaarrrgghhh... lucky I have no financial details on it ...still use a cheque book and debit card...

Hopefully all the links will reappear... and will check in on all when I can...

It's a total invasion of privacy MC!
Slam that gate shut with a password as soon as possible.
How 'bout you just rummage through these people's dresser drawers?..Apparently,they wouldn't have a problem with that.
There is only one other person in creation that can access my computer,and that's just in case I drop dead,and they have to inform my blog buddies.

Therese, links are there but way down at the bottom which sometimes happens when the posts are very long with photos. Pavlov's Cat blog is the same, I always have to scroll miles to see the links.

Links appear fine to me. Hope you are having a good holiday. Do you rent out to strangers or are they friends?

Sling... I will. Soon as I get home...also going to invest in a door lock as there is no earthly reason for anyone to need to go into the room the computer is in.
Jahteh.... thanks found them later on...will sort it out when i get back
Jacqui.... not there are not professional house sitters...sort of friend/aquaintences both... just some people don't understand privacy... nature or nurture....?

I expect the computer you were using had a different web browser or it was set up differently.
The web page is fine when viewing using Internet Explorer

No privacy at all here at Bucknam Palarse.
It's the price one must pay for servants.
