TypePad Follies — Week II



Constant readers will have been following with amusement my travails since last week Monday, when TypePad suddenly dropped an entirely new — "and improved" — compose system on me backstage.

It was all I could do to make my way through the old minefield of features that did stuff I never asked for or couldn't figure out.

The new one's supercharged with much more in the way of options like "Rich Text" (is that what I don't produce?), "Edit HTML," and all manner of other stuff that's the TechnoDolt™ equivalent of seeing sausage made.

In other words I want no part of it.

While I continue to try to stay afloat, I thought you'd enjoy some feedback (top) on other problems related to the "Upgrade."

I will say this: I'm so enraged about all the extra work and trouble and time it now takes to produce bookofjoe that I'm open to anything — and I mean anything, including a different host, ads both banner and text, Twittering, posting from my iPod touch, and auctioning off a kidney.

Well, maybe not that.

Stay tuned.

Oh, yeah — my response to the latest communiqué from TypePad (top)?

You don't want to know.

Absolutely I do. And how do I know that? Because I've got a clue.

When you tell me that I don't want to know, I want to tell you that you don't want to hear what I won't be saying to you because you think you can't tell me what you think I don't want to know.

Did I just read banner? Or do mine eyes deceive me?
