This morning as I came to blogger, I was greeted with the following message:
"Your new version of Blogger is ready!"
Okay, there've been other tempting messages from Blogger to convert the old blog to their new beta blog version, so after saving all the previous Dada blog entries (save for the many wonderful comments from regular readers), I was ready to take the plunge per Blogger's relentless urgings.
Finally I arrived at the buried button, now uncovered, where one dives into the future at the risk of total severing from one's past. Gasp, deep breath, and all that remained to do was hit the "Agree" button.
Such courage was finally conceded in a "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead" attitude. Imagine my disappointment after crossing my fingers and closing my eyes, only to peek through slitted eyelids to see the message telling me Blogger could NOT convert my blog to the new better, beta version.
So if this old blog is too large to convert, why the proud announcement, "Your new version of Blogger is ready!"? It's reaching the point where one can't believe anything they're told anymore.
(But curiosity being what it is, I went ahead and opened a new blog under their new format. Mostly to see how much better everything would be "over there." So I won't pass judgment just yet, out of respect for programmers who have been working their collective butts off for months on this. Seems only fair to give 'em a proper chance. But so far I'm not sure what all the hoopla's about.)
