A place to unwind and spend some time yakking.

short hiatus for a project and a bloggy warning

I received the alert today about the impending switch from Blogger format to the beta Blogger design. I thought, "What the hell," and switched. If you haven't switched over yet, I caution you to wait and research your options. I wasn't pleased with the widget selections, and when I read over what happens to your blog when you switch over, I didn't have a full understanding of what would be lost. Thankfully, I was able to revert to my "classic" Yak Attack template, for now. I'm not sure how long it will be available, though.

I'll not be blogging for a few days. I'm working on a special project, and I'll post updates as I progress. For now, I leave you with a couple of things to check out:

Um, er ... WHAT alert about a Blogger design change? I have a couple o Blogger blogs and nobody told me about 'em. Are you sure it's a legitimate alert? There are evil people out there ...

Hi Warren,

It was on my dashboard when I logged into it on Sunday, Nov. 12th. If you check out the Blogger FAQs, there is this section: What if I don't want to switch. I received the "invitation" and felt my time was limited. I made the switch and to my dismay, didn't like it.

Your blogs may not have received the invite just yet. It looks like it's going out in phases

Grrrr.., another word of warning--- if you switch to beta blogger, you can't post comments to non-beta blogs anymore. Arrrgggghhhh!!!!!!!!! This is flippin' unreal. I just tried to post a comment on Montag and I wasn't allowed to.
