Struggling With The New Blogger Interface
When I came to write a new posting today I found that the blog interface had changed and it has proven to be an utter nightmare. Every five words or so the system backs up what I have written, freezing the screen and leaving my laptop to labour with its fan going at full blast. The interface cannot keep up with the speed I type at. Every saving wastes about twenty seconds let alone losing the words that I have typed in after it decided to save. Even this short posting has taken many minutes to produce and it means a longer piece is going to need much more time than use to be the case with the former interface. Given the frustration of having to write and stop, write and stop, not knowing at which moment I am going to be interrupted by the system, I do not know if I have the patience to continue with this blog. It is very, very irritating now and so causes tension whereas in the past it has been an outlet for tension. Why do companies always feel they have to 'improve' a system when in fact they end up providing you with something so much worse than what was available before? They have probably now wrecked the good reputation they once had for blogging facilities. I, for one, am now looking for some other host with a much less stupid interface!
