I don’t know what happened to Blogger but when I accessed my blog with my Internet Explorer ( default) browser from the office yesterday it lost the graphics and turned into textual, reminding me of the early days of the internet , pre-Netscape and Internet Explorer era, when we only used textual browsers like the extinct but venerable Gopher 😦 When I arrived home however I could access my blog – graphics and all, with Firefox! Conclusion – Blogger’s web servers where all our Blogspot blogs live and breath have a problem with Internet Explorer. What else could it be ? And what is the fix ? Changing to a new template ? I can’t worry about it anymore.
Last week I was thinking of using my old Okidata personal laserjet printer (parked in my basement for a while now) with my laptop so I went to the store to buy a parallel port to USB adaptor. The price was $30 about half the price of a new HP Photosmart C3135 ( scanner, photocopier,printer) which was going for $69 ! I know the ink costs half the price but the printer cable – whoa ?? Kinda ludicrous to think that a cable would be half the cost of the darn printer but hey, I guess there’s many things we don’t understand in this world that don’t require an explanation 🙂
