Well yeee haw.
Now I've done it,
I've finally done it.
Flashes of Charlton Heston on the beach.
But it's not really that bad.
So here it is.
My very first, official very own blogging on my very own blog.
Guess I have to turn in my Luddite League badge at last.
— Or can I wait until I get the new DVD set-up programmed so I don't need three (THREE) remotes to work it?
It is always something.
I have a conflicted relationship with technology, in any case.
I started out working on campus using UNIX in, like 1980.
But mostly I've always only just learned enough to do what I needed to do, without really understanding things.
And, damn, here I am, twenty-odd years later, still carefully standing just behind the learning curve.
So, why doesn't Vox like Safari?
Why should I have to have another browser?
Well, why not.
The more the merrier.
At least I don't still have OS9 and OS10 on the laptop.
Anyway, I have been contemplating technology lately.
I was cleaning house (ha) and unearthed a slide rule.
No, this says nothing about my housekeeping skills.
It was sensibly and neatly packed in with the art supplies.
Anyway, I was thinking about slide rules, and correcting selectric typewriters.
And I'm sure there are lots of other examples.
These things are little pinnacles of technology that solve a problem beautifully, only to have the whole issue resolved differently.
