Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Well, earier Debbie asked me to help her with her blogskin. As I couldn't preview it due to a Blogger problem, I decided to copy my code onto notepad and then copy Debbie's code and paste it onto my blog and publish it. Okay, the problem was "settled" so to speak, so I copied my code back and pasted it back into Blogger. The thing is, it wasn't the entire code! Nearly half the code was gone. I realized that I had copied the code and pasted it into notepad before the template had fully loaded. Zzz.
So although I should have slept close to two hours ago, I'm awake now because I just finished adding in the codes again. A few months ago I thought the headache of making this template was over. Barely a few hours ago I realized I had to redo half the template. Thank God it wasn't the entire template, or I'd go nuts. Luckily for me, the Cbox and archive codes could be taken from different sources, giving only a slight nuisance in recreating the divisions for the navigations.
However, I lost a portion of my links, mainly the extra websites at the bottom, but also a few of my friend's blogs. So through memory, I had to slowly link back all those extra websites and the lower part of my links. Seems I'm not that dumb after all, because I doubt most of you would have noticed what websites I had there in the beginning. I managed to get a significant amount of websites back and most of the lower links. I think I'm still missing a few websites though, plus a few links, so if you somehow remember (I'm seriously doubting it) a link or website missing from what you remember, tell me!
So since I was busy editing my template, I thought why not clean up my links? I found a lot of blogs had been deleted or had changed their URL, plus I also changed my blog song. Linkin Park - Leave Out All The Rest. I deleted all the names of people who deleted their blogs, or updated those who had changed their URL. So at the moment I'm typing this, all my links work! They're the most updated and "fresh" links available. It was difficult to remember the links though, because no one I know links so many people. Heck, I know some people who willingly admitted they don't bother linking people because they just use my blog to find people! They know I have the most updated links of anyone. Well... credit that to my blog finding skills... haha!
Finding your friends wasn't so easy last time though. My links used to be placed according to how often I read them. A few closer friends, interesting blogs and blogs I read regularly were placed on the top while blogs I linked just for consideration were placed below. Those blogs I read once in a while were somewhere in the middle. Some people got indignant, unhappy that our "friendship" in real-life didn't match their position I placed in the links. That was part of the reason I changed them to alphabetical order once I unfroze my blog.
