Arrrgh! Technology bites.

I use two side by side monitors, linked so they operate as a continuous screen. iPhoto is set to open on the left. The left monitor is dead. It was fine, I was browsing UKS, and popped off to make a cup of tea and when I got back, one big white screen, one perfectly normal screen.



Yes, I did check the connections. Yes, I rebooted. No, nothing helps. Anything set to appear on the left opens but I can’t see it. And since I can’t see it I can’t drag it over onto the working screen.



So while I have quite a lot on my desk at the moment, including a fabric covered birdhouse book inspired by Linda_E’s adorable house here, you won’t be able to see it as nothing I do will let me force that iPhoto window onto the right hand monitor.



UPDATE-ok, so somehow I managed to make iPhoto come over to the working screen (lots of fiddling and 3 re-boots and it finally accepted that there was only one screen, which is madness and the Mac KNEW there was only one since when I asked it it could only detect one!) and I have some WOYWW photos!







The house opens up completely and there will be a minibook inside, eventually. The house is made from fabric covered cardboard – I’ll add more photos as it progresses.
