Heavy Sigh

Okay, blogger has eaten another one of my probably-longer-than-it-should-have-been posts. I've been reduced to writing e-mails to strangers asking plaintively how they managed to move their blogs off of blogspot.

I understand the basic concept. Get a domain name. Find a hosting service. Set up website. Move archives. Takes about a week if the blogs I've read are anything to go by. I don't have a week.

Plus which, the blogs of the people who have managed to set up their own sites are always referring to arcane software programs I don't understand. What is "Perl" and can I make a necklace if I have a hundred of them?

As I told one such individual today, it's not that, given the time, I wouldn't be able to figure it out, but time is the one thing I don't have much of.

I can't believe that in all of blogdom, there isn't one un/under-employed person willing to take my money in exchange for doing most of this work for me. What kind of crass consumerism do you call that? What happened to the American Dream? Isn't taking the money of overpaid, ignorant people good enough for the Left any more?

You people are spoiled, you know that? No dessert.
