Blogger is up to its new tricks
Those of you who don't blog are probably unaware of the frustrations inherent lately in using blogger. Blogger, the free service that is kind enough to host this blog and so many others (all of the ones with "blogspot" in the name), is having--to put it mildly--problems.
Sometimes it's impossible to log on. When logged on, most of the time it's impossible to post. It's necessary to save each post in some other venue before trying to publish it, because nine times out of ten (or actually, ten times out of ten) it would be lost otherwise.
I attempted to publish one of today's posts about seven times to no avail. I only managed to get it published by a little trick I've developed--changing the title. Why this ploy should work I haven't a clue, but I have found that sometimes it does. However, if a few hours from now seven identical posts suddenly pop up in a delayed reaction to my efforts, don't be surprised.
So, this constitutes my disclaimer: don't blame me for anything, blame blogger! I would think it's an elaborate passive-aggressive April Fools' joke on the part of blogger, except that it's been going on now for over a week.
