Stupid "Progress."

I hate upgrades. I log on this morning and my blog reader opens with some news about having turned on spam monitoring without asking me about it - I haven't been having a problem with spam - and my blog reader was empty. According to it, I'm not following any blogs. Um, I am too! Apparently the upgrade disconnected my blog reader.

I still show my whopping 11 followers, so probably the following is intact except for, you know, the useful bit where it loads the blogs you're following into the reader. But if I've vanished from your list of followers, I'm not dissing you; the service is.

No upgrade was ever done right the first time in the history of computing. This is why I'm still running WordPerfect 8 - as long as it works, I'm not fixing it! By the time we get around to an upgrade, all the bugs have been worked out of it.

  1. I hear on the upgrades! Why break something that ain't broke?
