That New Car Smell.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 2:38 pm

Having the new site is like getting a new car. Like most new car owners, I spent a fair amount of time just admiring its looks and tentatively touching some of the new giz-wizzes. I also have been reading the online manual to see how this sleek street rod works. Unfortunately, for techno-dweebs like me, the Bankruptcy Code is easier to grasp than are the discussions of templates in the User’s Manual. However, as you can see, I have figured out how to add a new entry, and I’ve even successfully edited some of the older posts in which the titles look a bit goofy (because BlogSnot had no title field). I figure that, for me, that’s quite an accomplishment.

My next challenge is to learn how to add (and edit) links to the blogroll, as some people who were hiatus or had shut down are back.

I have already thanked Craig at mtpolitics for building my new cyber car. I would also like to thank those who have urged the switch on many occasions. They include, Jay Solo, ZombyBoy at Resurrection Song, Tiger, Joanie (Da Goddess), Jeff at Side Salad, and the infamous Acidman (or is it Catman?). Thank you all for being pains in the ass. Ultimately, it worked.

The weather in Jersey has turned ugly again. What started out as freezing rain and sleet (my most un-faves) has now turned into more farookin’ snow. I can see more snowblowing in my not-too-distant future. I still intend to drive very carefully to the Legion Post to see the Usual Suspects and tell them all about my new “wheels.”


  1. Awww, sweetie. I’m SO GLAD you made the switch. Life will be soo much easier now. Well, at least the blogging part. Heh.

  4. Congratulations, welcome, and thank God!

    Now I’ll be able to comment without my comments disappearing at the whim of wonky softwared.

    Hope you enjoy the new site–I know that we fans of the Rest Stop will.

    Okay, so “W” day is a little in the past (hey, I don’t actually get too terribly near computers on…
