Technology strikes again

I tried to post a blog before now. I went to the website and--uh no--blogger announced that they'd improved themselves. They were better now! These are always scary words for we, the technology-illiterate. I spent several minutes trying to give the website Dr. Phil-like advise about accepting ones shortcoming, loving their inner beauty, and not getting caught up into the trap of keeping up with the Joneses (or in this case, Myspace.) But no, the I'm okay, you're okay philosophy doesn't apply to technology. Where technology is concerned no one is okay, especially those of us who don't even know what Beta is. (I thought it was a fish but apparently not. I can't imagine Blogger announcing that they are no longer using fish on their website.)

I guess I should have known I was in trouble when Blogger used the comparison of Battlestar Galactica. The difference between the new and old Blogger is the same difference between new and old Battlestar Galactica!

Yikes, I loved the old Battlestar Galactica (see my biography page) and haven't been able to bring myself to watch much of the new series because, hello, Starbuck is a girl and so is Adama. Though I do admit that the Apollo is still cute . . .sigh . . .what was I talking about again?

Anyway, so I'm still posting using the old method and there may be a long blog break while I try load and navigate the new one.

Note to the people at Blogger: Learn to love yourself, fish and all!

Janette, I have to laugh with you. I didn't know that beta referred to fish, but I know that it means a second or testing version (alpha, followed by beta--sorry, that's all the Greek I know except for lambda, delta, and sigma, but they're not in order).

Blogger now will be better than ever, and you will learn to work it in time--you won't have to republish your blog, either.

Oh, see it would help if I spoke Greek . . .then maybe technology wouldn't be so confusing . . .

I'm such a total techno-idiot that it's good I married a techno-genius. I don't have to figure out blogger or even how my printer works. Whenever I'm stumped (which is painfully often), I just call out, "Honeeeeey! Heeeeelp!"
