Still having trouble logging in? I know I am.


Seriously looking at dumping my blog softaware, pMachine, this template and its associated CSS and either starting over at Blogger, or modifiying this template to work on this new blog software. I will keep this lot of 1300+ post as an archive, just turn off comments, if I do.

Blogger is OK, I guess but it's just a bit too... what's the word?... FUCKING BORING... Don't you just LOOOOOOVE the thrills and spills of non-progammer me totally ballsing up the html and the php coding? Isn't that more exciting than reliable, dependable, (HAH!) limited Blogger?

And of course, that will mean all your hard earned memberships (200 members! and I luv yas all!) will be dull and paranoid, I mean null and void. I think on b2evolution you don't need to "join" as such to comment, just have cookies enabled, which will make it easier. But if I get too much comment spam... ggrrrr! Registration goes on!

This transition, should I decide to go ahead Mr Phelps, might take me a while to complete.

Like, for example I've forgotten how to point to the blog to my domain server! But seeing as how I'm sitting here doing nothing waiting for my replacement passport to come through...

(And then there's the tempation to dump this aging desktop PC and go for one of the new iMacs.)

Blogger is indeed Fucking Boring but how much time do you spend reinventing the wheel / monkeying with your code when you could be doing something else?

Like actually writing.... ~lol~

My god, I'm on!

Spike: lots of time! It's the tinkering that'sfun not the actuall blogging. Like having one of those infernal coffee machines from hell that hiss and spit and gurgle, and have 37 knobs and buttons and controlling levers, when you could just get one sachet of Nescafe cappuccino mix and it's brilliant. Men have a gadget gene.

Indy: wise words. And what are you your doing with yours? Writing for the female mass media?

blogger boring? wow, did i ever miss the point, sugar...i thought the words were the draw, not the background! xox

(get a mac, you'll love it)

Sav: it's also a statement about individuality and the refusal to be sucked in by the specious and meretricious gloss of mere marketing and the promise of easy options and security which actually curtail your freedom of expression...

Plus I want to put in a Recent Comments section. Can't do it with pMachine and can't figure it out on Blogger.

a mac - review what was I saying about specious and meretricious! Resist! Resist!

Oh and by the way, the "notify me when someone replies to this post" ain't notifyin'

Posted by: spike on Jun 04, 08 | 1:04 am

Spike: do'h!

Posted by: expat@large on Jun 04, 08 | 2:18 am

Ah, hey, Spike, check your profile -you haven't entered an email address. That's also why your name is not bold and blue on the comments pages...

Posted by: expat@large on Jun 04, 08 | 2:20 am

i have that widget on my site, sugar (totally ignoring the rest of your answer), it's all done in layout. btw, indiana's blog is on blogger and he tricked his site out really well! xoxo

(this is the last time i'll mention how wonderful my G4 is, sugar) ;-)

Sorry big guy but thou art wrong-o-roonie. I do have an email address on my profile, but I have checked the option to "not allow email address to show when I comment" or however you have it phrased. I'm quite okay with my name being neither bold nor blue. (And I also have an old email address that I check only once a month instead of a more actively used one, so I just changed that.)

Posted by: spike on Jun 15, 08 | 2:26 am

Sorry-o-roonie... I know you have to have an email, else you can't register in the first place! But more specific: you have to tick - "Accept Email" on your profile, the one just below "Don't Show Email on Posts". I have done it for you, let me know if it works now.

btw don't thank me or blame me for the details of the wording and all the other annoying things: I didn't write the software, I only chose it because it was free and downloaded it.
