(migrated from my Tripod blog on 11/05/2011)
Pulled the plug.
I'm tired of fighting with Tripod's blog engine, so I've moved the whole she-bang back to my "old" blog on Blogger.
Please update your RSS feeders, links and blogrolls.
My blog's relationship with Tripod is not unlike the lives of some of my friends.
lived under their parents' roof until they spread their wings and flew
away. Sometimes things got a little too difficult, or perhaps they
were lonely, and they ended up moving back home.
found the environment safe and familiar, but ultimately stifling and
lacking in real freedom... so they left home again, usually for good.
that's how I feel about Tripod's blog engine. I liked the familiarity
with Tripod and the fact I could have everything under one roof, but
Blogger offered me a real chance to take things to the next level, so
to speak. So I spread my tiny wings and flew away...
... only to return a few years later. I'd planned to bring everything back under one roof,
but found the lack of features in Tripod's blog engine (specifically
embedding objects and mail-to-blog) unforgivably stifling and
I tried their other website building options, which
promised point-and-click building of websites, but I didn't find them
satisfactory. So this morning, I decided to pack my bag(gage) up and
head on back to Blogger.
The blog will probably remain there for
good... unless I finally install Wordpress on my 1993-vintage
Sparcstation IPX and sign up for co-location somewhere.
