Who Says This Is Progress?

"For a list of all the ways technology has failed to improve the quality of life, please press three." ~ Alice Kahn

Would someone who knows how to work this new blogger please explain to me how to restore the things I've lost? And, In the words of Denzel Washington in "Philadelphia", Explain it to me like I'm a two year old.

OK. Where did my stat counter go and how do I get it back? I don't care about the adsense. I wasn't making anything off that, anyway.

UPDATE: OK. It looks like I am starting to understand it. But I'm not holding my breath.

P.S: How does it look so far?

P.S.S: I still don't know how to get my stat counter back. Why doesn't blogger provide an e-mail address so I can contact them and have them explain this stuff to me?

I can't even post to my own blog right now, don't ask me...

Way better than that crappy Blogger blue dots theme.

:-)

Henry, I agree. I could have changed to the new blogger without changing the template, but I've wanted to change it for a long time. This gave me an opportunity to do it. Or at least, an excuse.

I hate "forced" conversion.

The "moderation off" is a blessing for me to post here, though. I like immediate gratification, and not having to wonder what's been posted before my comment, awaiting moderation approval.

Don't worry Dan... I won't ask you. You'd probably just tell me to appease someone.

I'm not switching to new blogger. I have heard too many horror stories.

Mark said...

You may have no choice, Mike. I didn't, and neither did several others I've seen. You have to switch if you want to post a new entry or moderate a comment or something. It won't let you keep the old blogger even if you want to.

I was lucky, I guess.

Koo - no longer have to use a flashlight for your dark, dark, page. This one almost looks - professional.

I'm one of the last hold out's too Mark lol.

Your blog looks very nice.

And I think we ALL ran KEvron off (Long Story) so you wont have to worry about that freak, you can leave comment moderation off lol.

Don't be so sure Marie, the pest came from my site and he will show up unless blocked through Haloscan.Marie, you are correct, word pictures will not stop him.
Mark , just swallow the bullet and get haloscan though I know you do not like them.
