Ch-Ch-Changes ...

I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream …

It never ceases to amaze me, the program changes this site implements without the most basic beta testing that even a rank amateur like me understands as needful. Evidently, the site hauls in soooo much money that they don’t need to be concerned about petty programming snafus.

However, this was a problem I could solve, and therefore, put my energy into finding a solution that will work under the current programming code. It’s a solution that will also work if the programming code is returned to the original code, thus eliminating the need to me to go back and fix my blog in the future.

Yes. It took me a while, an hour and a half to be precise. But I found a solution and implemented it in three of my posts below. They each have the BEFORE and AFTER snap shots showing the current problem induced by the changes made, and the simple fix that works under the current system.

The answer is a simple change in methods used to develop a post. Retraining. Change is always inevitable. The question becomes: Are we willing to adapt? Or shall we just complain?

My choice is to adapt. Humankind’s ability to adapt to a changing environment is supposed to be our greatest asset.

Okay, I'm curious and I know nothing about computers... What's the basic problem - that the system is slow? Please tell us (I'm not being sarcastic)

Thanks so much for explaining the computer stuff so that a "techno peasant" like myself can understand. You did a great job. Also, thanks for the vote on the photo.

This site is always doing something weierd!! I have gotten over it!! Oh yeah, you have been tagged!! Sorry, if you have been tagged before!!


The first player of this game starts with and shares "6 weird/things/habits/oddities about yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a blog sharing THEIR 6 weird habits things, oddities.

At the end you need to choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their latest blog post and tell them to read yours.
