But all this time—when we thought we were safe—Blogger was actually plotting against us. After systematically forcing our fellow bloggers to upgrade, they finally done did it. They pushed the upgrade on everyone.
Blogs that died years ago are now sporting the new iFrame-based navbar at the top of their pages. And (hah!) in a flagrant display (piff!) of cowardice, the Blogger Buzz site (link) still has the “classic” navbar they’ve denied to millions. Where are your highfalutin ideals now, Blogger?! I guess all that talk about a cyber-utopia was just that; talk. Do those Cardboarders over at the Googleplex have any idea how many minutes it took me to fix my code after their forced upgrade?! And do they even care, those barrel-chested, backwards-faced filter-heads who didn’t bother to tell anyone that this blog was updated?
It’s a miracle that we got the old navbar back up and running. This whole ordeal has been worse than that time George Bush revealed the ending to the sixth Harry Potter book in his last State of the Union Address. He was in the middle of talking about Iraq, and then wham. “Dumbledore dies.” Simple as that, it was the day my childhood truly ended, and why I can never watch CNN again.
With the new Blogger, why, republishing is instantaneous! That means... oh, Sweet Glavin! I can do everything I ever wanted to do, but didn’t have the room or time for! Bless you, Google, for your benevolence! I love the Google!
