New Blogger

I painlessly upgraded to the New Blogger. The main advantage is that I can now attach labels to posts. It is then easy to search for posts on a particular topic. (Entering labels caused a slight hitch - as I did this tonight for the last 20 or so posts Goggle assumed I was a Spam blog and temporarily stopped me continuing by switching me out).

New Blogger also provides options for customising template design - something I might get around to.

Blogger is looked down on a bit in the blogging community for its simplicity but this seems to me a virtue. I have played around with WordPress blogs. Their main advantage over Old Blogger was the ability to post quickly but, as I look around, they often seem to run amok. New Blogger is much improved in its ability to post quickly.

One thing I had hoped was that people who do operate blogs that run into problems with software, or indeed with hosting services, would comment explicitly on their problems and how they were resolved. It would be a useful service for the blogging community.

everything you post is spam in the sense that without fail you repeatedly assert the upright integrity of the Howard Government when in fact it is suffering a severe ideas erectile disfunction no blog Viagra can cure.
Is every idea that Mr Rudd puts foward bad simply because it is from Mr Rudd?

That's a new one Dany. I think Rudd is a man full of rhetorical and, thus far, without useful policies. He is wrong on uranium, industrial relations and industry policy for a start. He is wrong on these policies not because he is Mr Rudd but because these policies, in turn, limit options to deal with greenhouse gases, limit the opportunities to reduce unemployment and improve efficiency of labour markets and because we are in the process of winfding back protection of local industry - a move that has yielded us huge gains.

I don't think Howard is perfect at all. The pace with which he has pursued microeconomic reform has slackened, I disagree with aspects of current immigration policies and I would have preferred tax cuts to be directed at the low end of the income scale rather than on miiddle incomes. Apart from that, yes I think Howard is a pretty good PM. This is a view shared by the majority of Australians.

But a cute turn of phrase, Dany, and I might well recycle it in a new morph.
