Okay. Now is not the time to panic. Most, or many, or at least some of you, are aware of the problem with our friends over at the place that starts with "Mega" and ends with "upload." It's a serious matter, one that has put a major dent in plans I had for today, and plans that many of us have had for a very long time. And it's exactly at times like these that each and every one of us needs to step back, take a few deep breaths, and say the following words to himself or herself, out loud, if possible:

"I am not my past or my future. I am not whatever story I have made up about myself, and told myself is true. I am not whatever hurts or joys I have experienced, or will experience. I am only present, now, in this very moment. I am the watcher watching, the listener listening. I am the space that the objects in this universe occupy. I am pure, eternal consciousness."

Okay, you can all scream now. I'll figure something out.

UPDATE: That took longer than expected. But you're all set now. Also, Big Walter Horton is here since I'd neglected him in the previous post.
