Post-haste


Since Blogger says our missing entries and comments from yesterday will eventually be restored, I’ll refrain from re-posting them for now. I’m amused, meanwhile, by the commotion this interruption in service has caused, the upset, the turmoil, and in some quarters glee by industry “experts” and users of other platforms. It’s free, for heaven’s sake. And at some point our very lives will be unplugged. Better to live them now, while we can.

Jen, Donna, thank you both for attending this Friday the Thirteenth edition of “Philosopher’s Corner.”

I had one post recovered as a "scheduled" and a comment I had to approve. Otherwise, everything looked normal.

The two posts I added yesterday both disappeared, along with their comments and one that’s pending, and also some comments from the day before. The posts are also missing from my editing area....

Amen, and take hard copies.

Good advice. Hard, bitten, with pursed lips, wearing trench coats.

working behind the scenes today. I closed my facebook account, temporarily, to re-assess my reasons for being there, and the time involved. Even so, I want to keep some of my closer connections and am glad for blogging...It is great to be able to peruse your posts...

I don't know what caused the glitch in the machine but one thing is driving me crazy: During Blogger's "problem" period, all my posts were shown to have been posted by--get this--The Squint-eyed Kid rather than Vazambam! How--or maybe even more sinister--why did Blogger do that?

Deeply appreciated, Paulette. I understand. Time is of the essence. I thank you for keeping our connection alive.

Vassilis: As I see it, it must be Blogger’s way of acknowledging your peerless contribution.
