It's about time

I maintain blogs on both the Blogger and WordPress platforms. There certainly are other platforms out there as well. I was about to migrate all my Blogger blogs to some other platform over a technical glitch on Blogger that had tested the furthest reaches of my patience - search.

Little things mean a lot

In Windows, a dialog box pops up. It's annoying, we reflexively click just to make it go away, and then ask ourselves, "wait...what did I just do?" In Windows, the "proceed/yes" button is on the left and the "cancel/no" button is to the right. When we read from left to right, the "proceed/yes" button is the first button we see, and we tend to click it without thinking. Every once in a while, we're realize too late that we've done something we can't undo, much to our chagrin.
