Just Some Stuff

What the hell happened to Blogger?  This new format for posting is screwy!  My Facebook got hijacked by their new format, now my blog has the same thing happen.  I am not categorically opposed to change but both of these at the same time and while I don't have a regular computer are mildly annoying.

No,  I still haven't gotten a new computer yet so I still use Mr. Lime's only when I have it available to me.  Some other things have been occupying my time and mind.

I do have a new camera lens though and I am quite enjoying my new zoom and macro capability. It's a bit of a learning curve as I adjust to the nuances of the new lens (for those interested, it's a Sigma 70-300 with macro capability for a sweet deal....ooooh, it's a niiiiice lens) but this is more fun than the Facebook/Blogger thing.  I am itching badly to go through the pictures I have taken and post some of my favorites.  Soon, I hope.

And now for a bit of twisted humor...

Yeah, I'm not really happy with the new Blogger format either. Not like I have a lot of time to figure this stuff out, but I guess it will do.

On the Dick Clark matter, I never thought the dude would ever pass away. I remember watching American Bandstand with my uncles and their girlfriends.

Sometimes Blogger can be like Microsoft and make subtle changes just to confuse us. I think it keeps their Tech's in work - Dave

I am wishing lots of amazing photos with that lens .. I have a 28-300mm that I use all the time .. and my chiropractor has seen me more often since I got it .. I've been using Blogger in Draft for about 18 months now and its evolved into the new Blogger format you see .. its actually a very smooth interface with few glitches but it takes some getting used to .. the learning curve is very fast .. you will soon forget the old format ever existed.

Funny bit on Dick Clark (altho, am I just the World's Most Anal Person, if the first thing I thought was, 'SUPPOSED'; it's 'SUPPOSED'!)

But, uh. . . I'm old enough to remember 'American Bandstand'. . .

I'll be more succinct concerning Blogger's new format - it sucks.

OK, carry on!

Dave should look up subtle.

I believe Suldog's exact words were SUCKS, SUCKS, SUCKS, SUCKS

...and I concur.

Also - like Craig, I found the Dick Clark/Mayan reference funny... in fact it may appear on my Facebook page.

Is this new lens auto-focus? I got a nice price on one that was manual, but AF would be sooooo much better!

I have a 70-300 Sigma lens so I have a good idea of the fun you're having. The Dick Clark line cracked me up and I do agree about Blogger. They've been making non-stop changes every month for the past little while. It's like they don't want us playing in their playground anymore because they keep on pissing in the sandbox.

I switched to the new formats as soon as they came out. I knew it was inevitable I'd get them, so I figured I may as well see the results.

Blogger's change? sucks bigtime. It's SO non-intuitive... almost no color variations so you can't see the input boxes, can't find the button you need, etc. Every time I go to do something, I can't find the option. And I've been using it for a while now.

And like Craig, the "suppose to" really bothered me. Enough so that I would never post it on MY facebook!

Kat said...

I know! I can't stand that all these formats are changing all over the place. Facebook and now Blogger. UGH. I feel like a 90 year old woman who refuses to accept change but it really does bug me. *sigh*
AND... if you are gonna make changes to something shouldn't it be for the better? Shouldn't it make things EASIER????? BAH!

I'm not happy about the new Blogger format - it's confusing.

I hate the new Blogger format. They call this progress?
