The Wiseass (in another incarnation) began an online journal in June of 2000 after having been laid off from what would be a final cubicle job.
The ‘old’ days, when Blogger was a mere infant application and most journalers were still doing it old school. Yep, using a homemade template and each journal entry meant creating a new page, manual links and navigation.Well, the whole process became a bit tedious after a while and the Wiseass had to close the journal two years later. So, basically, the Wiseass was ahead, yet is now behind. Does that even make a tincture of sense to you?
And, no, there will be no direct links to the Wiseass’s original online journal (it’s still out there if anyone is curious enough for a web scavenger hunt). Mostly because the Wiseass is embarrassed to admit that the Wiseass initially used…cough…sputter…Microsoft FrontPage as a WYSIWYG HTML editor. Well, in FrontPage’s case it would be WTFWTFWTF. Anyway, the Wiseass eventually got smart and began using Dreamweaver (sigh…back when it was owned by Macromedia…sigh). On occasion a ‘blast from the past’ entry will be published…because they’ve all languished on that undisclosed server for so long.
Hey, Wiseass! Why no comments allowed in posts?
Well, you can thank spammers for that. The Comment Blacklist can be as long as your intestines and it STILL wouldn't make a dent in lessening the amount of spam comments for everything from Michael Kors handbags to Viagra and whatever else these spammers are promoting with their weird text characters and bad grammar. The Wiseass has no intention of moderating thousands of spam comments every month just to separate the wheat from the chaff. The wheat just ain't worth the time it takes to sift through that chaff, believe me.
