Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Final Insult

As most already know, my life has been "busy" shall we say, these last two months. This situation has been complicated by the fact that Blogger appeared to be ignoring me in the most insulting way -- not allowing me to post, eradicating lengthy posts, not allowing me to add a photograph, not allowing me to save drafts or publish at all. Even now, as I write these words, I'm attempting to add a photo (on another computer) and the process is glazingly slow.

As a matter of fact, there it goes. I can't add a photo and this computer is hooked to DSL. I have a little winky dial-up at home but, unfortunately, with the way my life has been running, all the emergencies and issues have been in the Sacratomato Valley -- nowhere near my home.

The previous post, for example, was accomplished after five attempts by first composing in Word and then pasting rapidly. No photo, no graphics. On my work computer, my blog appeared as though I had completely eradicated my right sidebar and I thought: "Lord, how would I possibly re-create this blog from scratch?" I admit; I panicked.

I had to wait all day until I could leave work and access another computer. But at least I know the problem: my work computer. I discovered the I.T. creatures have added more sites to their URLs of Death -- to include Blogger. I also discovered "other entities" had been logging onto Blogger for hours at a time during work hours -- whilst I used my early morning time to blog before work. Heavy sigh.

So there you have it. I have to bring my massive HP Pavilion zd8000 to work and try to run it from my phone line, through my dial-up ISP.

I've not gone away; I've simply been out-maneuvered by a wily I.T. team.

I'll not give up so easily.

If you ever make the move to WP, you can import your entire blog. Also your IT department is less likely to ban your own domain than blogger.

Give it a good think. If you need a web designer, Ogre is the man.

I sent you an e-mail. I think I may see if I can hire Ogre for some blog updates.

BWH: Okay, if you have your own domain, how do you go about making your posts?
