Learning To Live On Our Own
In the long- lost mists of Internet Past, before Kos was a Great Orange Satan, before goatse, even before walrus lost his bukkit; a misguided architect with a mistaken belief that he had something to say and a medically worrisome musical compulsion started a blog.
And almost immediately, nobody noticed. So he changed his nym.
And hardly anybody noticed. Nobody ever banned him, but he did die, and came back like in a crappy zombie movie.
Eventually, of course, the repeated manic-depressive swings irritated Google (as it was struggling to become Skynet) and the entire system crashed. Yes, it was my fault, and I am sorry.
So I played around with a new blog using iWeb, hosted on MobileMe. I really liked it, it was all kinds of flexible, allowing more standard pages as well as whine-blogging. I was also able to post videos without them bleeding off the side of the page (I know at least one of you will remember I used to do a similar thing when making cassette tapes), as well as being able to just post songs.
So of course, A week or two ago, Apple announced the demise of MobileMe, and iWeb would not be updated any longer.
So here we are on WordPress. I imagine you can expect this to be the death knell for WordPress (if I had to guess, I would say Microsoft will buy it and give it the Clippy treatment) but until then, here I be and here I whine.
