Venture Forth, 36x36, 2005
Blogger pops right up this morning, looking innocently refreshed, showing no evil sneer or signs of remorse for having denied it's devoted public the right to post freely and willingly into the cybersphere... destroying a couple of well constructed attempts, even! The status page shows that there is much hustle behind our monitors and signs of improvement... and I'm sure there is!
One wonders if it wouldn't be better to change to a pay as you go blog and forget the freebie... you get what you pay for and all that. Well, here's my theory... if the service is free, it lasts for as long as the people behind it think it's a worthwhile service. I don't think Google is going anywhere soon and Blogger is the biggest monkey on the hill. I suspect they are having growing pains and must make proper adjustments. If you pay for a blog, the service ends when the payments end I'd like my ever-so-important-musings to hang around for awhile, just in case I need to remember what I said, even if I forget to pay my bills. And... the fact that you pay for something doesn't mean it won't break. Like that monopoly of an ISP I'm signed on to... try to make THEM understand that they need to fix what's broken!
In a now lost entry, I had much to say about this painting, but for now the title will have to serve as impetus for the day.
