Downloading software – why won't you work!!!!

I'm not having much luck today with Things 15 and 16.

Delicious seemed so simple

- download tool bar
- press buttons
- add bookmark to page
- lovely list of web references created

Not so simple

- download wouldn't work
- drag buttons to tool bar - only worked for 'create stack' button
- created 'save on delicious' button following iPhone instructions - amazed it worked!
- press buttons and ...

"The server is currently experiencing a high load."

Moving on to Mendeley.
I had such high hopes - i was really looking forward to finally getting the giant virtual 'stack' of pdfs of journal papers organised and properly referenced.

Again Mendeley seemed so simple

- add documents
- organised to folders if required
- let Mendeley do all of the fiddly referencing (filling in any gaps)
- bask in the glory of organisation

Not so simple

- time spent trying to add documents to webpage using 'Add Document'
- didn't realise it didn't work online and had to download Mendeley Desktop - not a problem just download it
- download didn't work
- utter failure - I need to speak to IT
