I had a different blog planned for today. I usually post my blog from my iPad, but because my app doesn’t let me insert pictures, I logged on through my PC. Holy Moley! Word Press changed their programing again. Despite several attempts, I just couldn’t get my picture to show and since the picture was crucial, I can’t post what I want to today. Hopefully, I’ll be able to figure out the “new” Word Press and post the blog next week.
Meanwhile, why did they do that? Are you as tired of software engineers changing stuff all the time like I am. Oh, there is a history in America of “New and Improved” from Wall Street. But that usually meant a change in packaging and hype. You know, like marking pasta as “Now low-fat” when pasta has ALWAYS been low-fat. Occasionally, there might be an actual change in the product, especially when the old one was dangerous and it was made safer.
But , it seems from Day One, software from operating systems to games are changed at least yearly. Okay, I understand why for stuff you buy. How is the company supposed to make money if the program lasts forever. But puh-leese! Why would you mess with something that millions of people are using daily and doing just fine?
Maybe they get a complaint or two and decide to change it. Or the engineers have WAY too much time on their hands. Whatever! The rule should be until there is a massive protest (like MS Vista) against something or usage in the program decreases drastically…
DON’T FIX IT IF IT AIN’T BROKE!
Now back to this new Word Press to see if I can figure out what I need.
