Hijacked by the “White Screen of Death!”

How can a weekend that started with a 1.5-hour massage and a relaxing graduation party end up crappy? Well, thanks to the “White Screen of Death” my relaxing weekend turned into an endless puzzle. First, let me say that my blog silence was not planned this weekend. It happened because …

Hopefully, I’ll be able to figure it out tomorrow, so I can move on to #28.
