... and Blogger
As I have probably mentioned before — but I forget — I am a bit of an absent-minded, head-in-the-clouds type of guy. In other words, I'm not always fully present in the moment.
So it was that earlier, when I posted the screenshot of my sitemeter, I really wasn't thinking that some folk might not make the connection that I did. How dense of me to assume that everyone would come equipped with the same background information as I.
You see, 666 is the mark of the beast, the Antichrist of the book of Revelations. So, when 6,666 showed up on my sitemeter, I immediately took a screenshot and posted it. When I say immediately, it probably took Hello and Blogger about two hours to come to grips with this and allow me to publish the post. It became just a tad frustrating.
Speaking of the system, I am not one to pounce too hard on a free service. Blogger acknowledges their problems and commits to fixing them. But free or not, if something is worth doing, shouldn't it be worth doing well? If you offer a service, shouldn't it work well most of the time? Not complaining mind you. No, not me.
