Technology

Technology is a word that describes something that doesn’t work yet.

–Douglas Adams

Does technology really make our life better?  Of course without technology I wouldn’t be able to do this blog.  Even just 20 years ago this would have been next to impossible (okay… maybe a more primitive set of tools were available, but since none of my dozens1 of readers were online it would have been pointless anyway).

But damn does technology frustrate.  I could have gotten up yesterday and read a nice book but instead I spent several hours trying to figure out how to get Windows Live Writer to successfully pull posts of this very blog so that  I could write my posts when I’m offline (like my upcoming 14 hours of flight time as Sandy and I go off on our next adventure).

But I finally had some success thanks to Pioneer Valley Web Design who kindly offered insight when I posted my problem here.

    I’m a reader! I keep trying to drum up others, but I think you need more pictures. Just a couple with captions every time you go somewhere cool and you’ll be at dozens in no time. Fives. Maybe. The point is you just have to publish content and they will come. And not in that creepy way in the baseball movie. That was just weird.

      I’m working on it… Livewriter makes it easier because I can compose everything offline and then publish when I have a connection. Sending a new entry up as we speak. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how to add captions below pictures yet using livewriter… but if you float your mouse over then you’ll see a comment.
