Good heavens! 85 days left on the Type Pad trial, after which, I presume, nothing will ever be the same.
Will I ever be able to have a normal life again? Has this brush with TypePad ruined me for anything else - will I close my Blogger account and fade into the distance?
I am expecting to survive - even if I am in an altered state - which I usually am anyway, otherwise how would I manage to write this much shit and stay sane.
A trip to the park today - almost a wind there - unpacked buggy, rolled out kite, got some movement in amongst the lulls. Bad time of the year for a decent wind, but you have to try.
Wayne turned up, amused by my obsession with getting some movement, any movement. He say the more experienced you are, the less time you spend messing about with anything but good wind.
I think I may have to stay inexperienced, and continue flailing about the place. Suits me.
Downside of buggying in no wind, little wind, is the lack of need for the harness. Should be an upside but it's not. The harness makes it a whole bunch easier to get a decent run.
Holding the handles by hand is a bit hard on the legs and abdominals - if nothing else at least I will end up with pretty abs - something I have waited 49 years to get.
Back to the TypePad thing - I have just been looking at the deals they offer, and it seems to me the dreaded old zoetrope site may have to be mapped to here. They seem to have everything I need, with the possible exception of CGI scripting, Perl scripts and whatever else I seem to find a daily need for.
We will see what happens - I am still the proud owner of Movable Type - the only reason I'm not up to my elbows in it is the demand, from my ISP, that I pay twice as much for hosting so that I may have access to MySQL. Seems a little steep to me, but we will look about and see what can be done.
