I think microwave transmissions have peaked, probably due to unforeseen activity in the Middle East, or solar flares, or something, and the tipping point has been reached, provoking a global wave of temporary insanity.
I offer as evidence that yesterday evening I suddenly felt compelled, for reasons I can't remember, never mind explain, to update my Blogger template. Why? It was perfectly OK. Anyway, I did it, using their wonderful new 'template designer'. I had a look. I wasn't sure if I liked it, so I thought I'd find some kind of undo function.
This morning I started this process. It took most of the day, but finally I managed to get back to where I'd started, except that Sitemeter had disappeared. Fair enough, reinstall it. So I followed the instructions, meticulously. They involve pasting HTML code into the appropriate place then saving the template.
I've already bored you into submission, so suffice to say that eventually I discovered that Blogger have just introduced a new feature (old IT-speak for F-up) that, as I type, makes it impossible to save HTML. They are silent on the subject, though hundreds of people have posted complaints..
I can't think of any reason at all why they'd do that, change a basic function that worked perfectly. Or why they seem incapable of backing out the change. Temporary mass insanity seems like the only answer. Other examples spring to mind.
