Kvatch Kvetches - It's Out of Our Hands
Did you know that this battle is over? Did you know that history will repeat itself? And the winner is..."HD-DVD"!!! Why? Because that's where the porn industry is going, and where pornographers go all will follow. Seems Sony doesn't want porn to be produced on their new format. So, like Betamax a quarter century ago, Sony kills their own baby.
I Like Yelp. You Like Yelp.
And the people who get paid to write the reviews really, really like Yelp. Now where the f*ck am I going to go for an unbiased opinion about that new noodle joint that opened up on the corner? [kvatch,kvatch]
Once More Unto The Breach, Dear Friends
Well I can't put it off any longer. Seems Blognonymous has been 'invited' to switch to the new Blogger. You'll recall that I tried this some weeks back with only limited success, but the choice no longer seems to be mine. With that in mind, I'm going to try and get this squared away once and for all and won't be posting again until at least Sunday afternoon. See you then, and wish me luck.
Hey... since I am BEYOND TERRIFIED of switching (seriously... I am starting to have REAL anxiety about switching to beta-blogger) will you be so kind, dear Froggie, to painfully post step by step what exactly one has to do to switch? This fellow blogger who is tech-scared would be so oh-so grateful.
Well, duh: Chowhound. (I used to be fairly active there, back in the days when I was going out to eat more.) They have a lot of very knowledgeable people--intimidatingly so.
except I have comments I can't find to moderate - but that's a holdover from the previous system.
Hey porn is the original 'early-adopter' industry. Can you think of any other segment that uses the multi-angle feature on DVDs?
As for the Blogger transition...I'll do my best. Hopefully Betmo and Alice are right and it'll be easy. But whatever I learn, I'll impart.
Any help is appreciated.
Anon: I just click the template to edit it, Ctrl-A (select all), then Ctrl-C (Copy), close the template, open notepad, Ctrl-V (paste), and just save it as a txt file. Then, if I need to reinstall it, just the reverse. I've saved and reinstalled mine several times. That way, I'm just saving/reinstalling the text of my template, not all that formatting junk.
As for how it it that I, "...know so much about about porn?" TFWY: Just you never mind about that. :-)
My template is the one blogspot gives for use. It sits on bloggers site I guess so I save it in case I need to rebuild my links. I'm really not that familar with html or templates and this is still new too me. I had seen somewhere that said to save a copy of your template in case you have to restore a corrupted one. So maybe I didn't really understand what they were talking about. I'll ask someone else and maybe they can give me the information I'm looking for. Thanks though for your reply and also thanks to the future was yesterday for his.
Oh, when you do, think about switching to Haloscan for your comments. SO much easier. And you can delete and BAN, too!
Anon: No. The only thing you're doing is saving whatever is on your template now. The links are turned back into "links" when blogger reads the template. All you're doing is saving the text that tells Blogger what's what. It's been a foolproof system for me. I have Dreamweaver 8 (a HTML,.etc. editor) and I quickly said the hell with that in favor of the good ole copy/paste/save. Everything on your template is plain old text. Blogger reads that text, then does it's thing for you. Here's a great place that takes the "scary" out of HTML. Go here, on the left under "Primers" click "HTML" and you'll see it's nothing but a bunch of text. One misplaced period can keep you up all night debugging is all.:)
Since it was just a test, I decided to play with the name as well. If I wasn't such a silly human, maybe I'd switch to the new for good.
Alas, for good or ill, Blogger invites but won't let me convert my old one. I think it's cuz I'm still an Admin on my s-daughter's li'l blog. Don't really know. Don't really care.
