Blogger

Blogger is shit.

It's been nothing but trouble since Thursday.

I've tried to upload some photographs to my Kamikochi post. The document contains no data.

My arse.

And does YouSendIt not work any more? I've been waiting for half an hour for a file to uplaod. Nothing works!

Blogger is having some big problems lately (it hit the news here Oct. 27), and while I would love to blame Google, it seems they are not entirely culpable. Isn't it frustrating? I've resorted to using Bleezer, which works but is really ugly. Aesthetics matter, I needn't tell you!

Aestheticsdo matter! What's Bleezer?

Bleezer is a blogging client, and it works with most major services. In effect, it bypasses the Blogger service itself and allows you (usually!) to post directly to your blog. It's free, and I have not run into the "broken pipe" problems of late on Blogger.com. However, it is ugly and takes a while to appreciate. It's at larryborsato.com, I believe.

Yousendit sux so bad. It's successful on about 1 out of 8 attempts for me. Hence my shares end up on bizarro obscure sites (which work...).

You're so right, Minge! It has been really a nightmare...

Sadly, all blogging services are much the same, I'm told. I'm also told we have no right to complain as it's free.

They, they being Blogger, say that it was the non-beta blogs that had the issues...

I think there's gremlins in the internet this week. I didn't run into problems with Blogger but an ezboard board (we call it eztard---not very pc but funny anyway). It was down for over 4 hours couple of days ago. And my computer has run as slow as if I were on dialup. WTF is going on??!!
