Sodding Blogger

Not too long ago, I complained that I didn't receive notification of any comments. I dealt with it by logging on to Blogger by Firefox instead of Safari and putting in my gmail address instead of hotmail. Since then, it has been all right, except that I'm not that enamoured of the gmail inbox. So, today, using Firefox, I put in my hotmail address, which I nearly always use. It didn't sodding work, I've just found a comment that has patiently waited for approval for sod knows how long because I didn't get an email. I don't use word verification because I have to type in the sodding wv myself and I do it wrong as often as not, sometimes several times, and I haven't even the excuse of being dyslexic - I think it is discriminatory to put in random letters that can easily be misread.

Please excuse multiple uses of 'sodding' but it could have been worse, after all. This is not today's post, this is a mere rant and will be followed by a proper post quam celerrime (if that's how you spell it, it's been a long time since 6th form Latin)

Et tu, Brute?
Join the happy band of bloggers thwarted by Blogger.
Still, at least it's free.
So far.

Arma virumque cano

Occupet extremum scabies

et

(my favourite, as it includes the Subjunctive)

Quis custodes ipsos custodiet?

True, I am not so bothered as to change to someone who wants Ready Money

Oh no...oh no no no...not Latin...I only know Carpe Diem and it doesn't apply here..although I would like to seize Blogger by the throat and strangle it...regularly.

quam celerrime (and I still haven't looked up the spelling) means 'as quickly as possible'.

Carpe Blogger is a good one too.

Well, we do carp about it, don't we?

And Horace would be pleased with us for Keeping Him Alive.

I always liked Horace.
