I had a point, but now it's just a tech rant

Thank you, Firefox, for so-called blocking redirection notice but then letting what I typed in myself through. I surmise you have a special agreement with the Google. Funny how "hard" it is to post to one's own stupid blog.

I used to use two different browsers, FF for "work" and Safari for "play," and now I remember why.

It's the same annoyance at not being able to have two Excel files simultaneously open at once on the Windows 7 (you know, the one that's like Mac OS X and beyond); Word is different — umm, are you not all the same program; do you think we're all so silly we can't tell which XLS file is in view? Me no get it.

PS, there's this silly stuff as evidenced by image above. Google+, anyone? I think not (I).

Have stopped photo-posting

Not having images is a death-throe (is the hyphen necessary) to any online (or printed article, except for the WSJ, and we all know who bought that old thing).

I agree.

Throes can last quite a long time.

Brown recluse spiders apparently can live five to ten years. I once met one who was about that age.

I am tired of meeting certain things (in specific circumstances).

Curb Girl, as she was / as it were, does not walk about as much; it is a known fact that many of her digi-pics were produced with the aid of a motorized vehicle (that died from oil-spill and led to a mere blah tax deduction, a full year before "cash for clunkers" was concieved, and that fact still rankles me : )

When she does, she's usually late (read: can't spare time to stop and snap), or, the route is so routine that there is nothing of interest to note.

Also, the camera is heavy.

As is water.

Choices are not Sophie-like all the time; they are easy.

I don't have the heart to make notes and then go into the blogroll editor to remove all the places that no longer exist.

There are others, too, like me and Vietnamese God and Fallout, Architectonikos, etc., that have waned to infrequency.

We all got bored or something?
