a cesspool of interwebness

Blogspot -> Google Blogger

So, Google has acquired Blogspot and now they are gradually moving everyone away from the original blog system (which GnoSchitt is a part of) to the new Google version. This sounds like it will be a bit of a pain, so I'm going to wait until I'm on Xmas holidays to even attempt the process of conversion - I will likely do it around Dec 28th or 29th, well after people have had a chance to post a favorite item from their Xmas loot!

Yeah, but what does it all mean?

Those of you with Gmail accounts (bless you) will be able to login with that account username and password now instead of the separate Blogspot account you created. Those of you without gmail accounts will receive invitations, again, to join the blog and then will have to go through some process to get logged in again, probably by converting the Blogspot account you originally created.

I've really enjoyed the running commentary over the past year, and I sincerely hope that people will jump through whatever hoop is necessary to get back onto the blog. Certainly every topic imagined is valid. Hopefully I will be able to add the menu system back to the blog and I plan to add topic counters too along with some other features that the new Google version supports.

Looking forward to everything everybody thinks in 2007.
