On Firefox. I like Firefox more than IE for several reasons, but for blogging, you can keep it. I have trouble uploading photos directly to my posts or transferring them from flickr, which may account for the lack of photos in the blog lately. I have resolved to log in to Wordpress via IE to ensure that I can actually post photos I have taken, and avoid having my head explode.
On running out of podcast backlog, and download interruptus. I was loving being late to the game in discovering Cast On and Stash and Burn. Listening to back episodes has kept me entertained for hours on the bus, running, and knitting. Alas, I’ve listened my way to current on both, and now I’m trying to find something new to listen to. I tried the Webs podcast, but that’s mostly advertising veiled in chatter about what’s new in their stock, plus many of the episodes are very short. Eh. I just subscribed to the KnitPicks podcast, and that seems to be Very Serious. Probably good for learning things, not so hot when I want to be amused. I gave Lime ‘n Violet a spin the other day. Having heard mixed reviews from my readers, I didn’t know what to expect. I do subscribe to their Daily Chum blog, which features some good patterns and glimpses of what’s up with the Cool Kids. After one episode, the jury is still out. Violet may border a bit on Rachel Ray in terms of her use of trite slang and gushing. Lots of personal talk, not enough knitting, to my mind, but I only listened to one. This is in part because my first two attempts at downloading from iTunes resulted in error messages partway through. Getting a full podcast to download is becoming somewhat of a crap shoot, and I don’t much like that. Why can’t things just work like they are supposed to?
On the bus. This is one I really do need to get over, because I chose this mode of transportation. But please indulge me for just a moment. In the past week, I have seen a bus driver READING THE NEWSPAPER while driving, drawn a driver who failed to stop when signaled at least three times during a half hour ride, and another who had the heat cranked so high (it was 57 degrees outside, people) I thought I might become ill. Good thing I’ve got that iPod to shut it all out.
Happy Tuesday! Wait, am I supposed to write about working out or something???
