Hm. I appear to have "upgraded".
Realize that I may be the most change-fearing individual on the planet. I am plenty comfortable using what works, and am rarely caught beta testing for anyone. (The only reason this computer has XP on it is because it came with it already installed; the backup PC is running Microsoft's last stable OS: Win 98.) So, anyway, I was pretty determined to be the last person to make the jump to the new Blogger thingy.
I clicked on my little funny-looking "B" this morning, and (as usual) selected the "Old Blogger" link. It took me to a page that said it was all ready to convert my blog. "I don't think you understand," I said as levelly as I could to my PC, "I don't want to switch my blog." I hit the back button and again clicked on the Old Blogger link, a little more firmly this time, to convince teh intarw3bz that I meant business, dammit. Once more it took me to a page offering me a Google account and announcing that it was ready to convert my blog.
Dammit. Back. *clicky*
Old Blogger. *clicky*
Right back to the same digital cul-de-sac. I was going to be forced to convert, like some Germanic peasant at the hands of Constantine's legions. I'm recalcitrant at the best of times; presenting me with a no-choice situation is going to draw muttered cursing at best, gunfire at worst. I didn't shoot the computer, though.
So, yeah, I've switched.
I don't have to like it, though.
