Winter wheat is up, blog futures are down
Anyone else been noticing the weekends are pretty dry out there in the blogsphere lately? Last Sunday I clicked on my stat counter and a puff of dust came out of my screen.
Mr. No, not now
In a related thought, I'm not sure my readers are buying my Mr. Know-It-All series. Either that or they think I've lost my mind and they can't figure out a polite way to tell me. Either way, the responses to the Mr. KIA stuff have consistently remained lite. But I'm still going to continue writing it every month because if nothing else it gives me a chance to be silly - you know, as opposed to the dreadfully serious stuff I normally write.
Oh, and hey - don't forget to leave Mr. KIA a question for next time! So far I only have 3 open questions in the queue.
Look at me! -->
Apparently Yahoo has acquired MyBlogLog.
Technically, this shouldn't make any difference to me. However, the other day I went in to change my picture and it wouldn't let me edit my account and forced me to sign into a Yahoo account to create a new profile instead. Ok, so what? Well, now instead of having just one MyBlogLog account I have two - with two different pictures and two different sets of "communities."
Here's the deal... I don't want a new community. I liked the community I already had. And now my new profile's picture is showing up everywhere including my own blog - which is just dumb.
So... in an attempt to get this straightened out, I sent a little note to the people at Yahoo asking them if they could somehow merge my two accounts into one, knowing full well I would never hear any response of course. But much to my surprise, I received this nice little note from Robyn only a few hours later.
Needless to say I was impressed. She even put a little smiley face at the end!
So if you're wondering why my new picture is showing up all over the place, this is why. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if Yahoo can merge me and my split personality back into one person.
Time to toss the packets
And finally... here's why I love Google.
The other day I picked up a sandwich from Subway, but they forgot to put the packet of light mayo in my bag. No worries - I had plenty of old ones in my desk.
But right before I was about to squirt some of this dressing goodness on my sub, a co-worker posed the question "How old is THAT?"
Honestly I hadn't thought about it. In fact, I had dozens of these condiment packets of undetermined age in my desk and had never really considered the fact they even had a drawer-life in the first place.
Well, one little Google search on the topic and I was taken to this story which explained that you only have between 7-9 months to use your mayo, ketchup or mustard before it poisons you and kills you.
Ok, it didn't say that specifically, but you can never be too careful.
