Programming Note

It seems that Blogger, and everything else Google-related is crawling at a geologic pace. I have spent the better part of the last thirty minutes trying to upload a photo, which is a bummer because I have a boatload of material to post.

I'm going to keep trying, but if it keeps up like this I going to bag it for the day and try again tomorrow.

Anyone else having problems?

Nope. I suspect you're being punished for misdeeds committed in a previous life :-)

You should open a Flickr account and upload to that. There's a one-click button above each of your Flickr pictures that will post that picture to your blog. You can then edit the resulting post as normal without having to deal with Blogger's upload process or limits. The free Flickr site is limited but as long as you upload small-ish pictures it's kind of hard to run out the monthly upload limit.

Hi, the Nag! Maybe you're right. I've often wondered about that.

Yo, Al,

I've considered Flickr and Photobucket for pics, I have accounts for both, but the thing is, I post a lot of copyrighted images and if they were to be deleted on those platforms, I'd be screwed in the long run.

With Blogger, even at the rate I'm going now, it would take somewhere between 5-10 years to use up my allotment of memory. Then all I would have to do is pay a small fee to get another 5-10 years worth.
