Change Bad. Same Good.

OK, I finally bit the bullet and made the soon-to-be-required upgrade to the latest version of blogger. So far, so good, I think. Don't seem to have lost TOO much.

Might be playing around with some format changes. You have to let me know what you think. If I change something and it looks freaky, send me a WTF.

Might even update my MIB ID Photo to reflect the current ratio of salt to pepper (think 99% salt with a "smidgen" of pepper).

can we just upgrade what we have, or do we have to start a new blog?

I keep hearing bad things about the beta blogger. I'll wait to upgrade when I start hearing good things.

Overall I like it. But I'm with Janet, what does it take to "upgrade" and is it worth the hassle?

Janet - you can just upgrade what you have. Don't have to start new.

Heather - Probably smart. The only reason I upgraded was because I know that one day we will wake up and find we've been "gang-assimilated" in our sleep. I thought I'd do it by choice rather than by force. I must be French.

Emaw - Upgrading is really just a click of a mouse. It's a lot like the first time you have sex. It's over pretty quick, doesn't hurt too bad, and you can't go back. It's done.

I don't know yet if it is worth the hassle. I noticed that Greg over at Death's Door had upgraded, and I try to be like Greg, so I had to do it too. Hope the fucker never walks in front of a bus...that would be curtains for XO.

I know there is a restriction on the size of pictures you can upload and I don't have that figured out yet. That's why the nice, big, red, firey mushroom cloud I uploaded with my last post is showing up as a red x.

I also find it annoying that when ever you want to leave a comment it warns you about secure and unsecure data on the same page and there doesn't seem to be a way to permanently say "Yes! It's OK! STFU! It's a blog comment, not a credit card purchase!!"

I'll keep you posted on side effects.

OK. I just noticed that I can now assign a label or category to my posts.

Have no idea what that means. But I did it anyway just for shits and grins.
