Anti Clockwise Blogging?

There once was a blogger named Tomaso... Who wrote countless Award winning blog stories on NoFenders.net.

Then he went Down Under to the Land ‘O OZ;
Where EVERYBODY drives ‘n walks on the WRONG side of the road...

Hence, perhaps this is why his NoFenders.net Blogger-blog began having another Hissy-fit upon his return, as ‘Juan MORE sign it was time for him to get OUT of the Blogosphere – especially since his daily traffic count continues plummeting...

As it seemed somewhat karmic that the DAMN Confuzer was giving him grief by continuously SQUASHIN’ his whole story into ‘Juan B-I-G NARLY BLOB, eh? As in why are Confuzers so DAMN sensitive that two different machines can tweak the same blog? But I digress...

Err, as you’ve all heard of the M.A.D. concept so stringently hyped during the Cold War era, right? As in Mutually Assured Destruction! Whale it appears that’s exactly what’s going on hear at No Fenders, not to mention the Internetz in general – as for reasons unknown I’m currently experiencing the posting issue described above, as it appears to be some sort of nefarious microSOFT compatibility issue between my Blogmeister’s higher version of winDOUGHs operating system vs. my ‘Ol clunker version...

Yet, this never ending calamity isn’t just reserved to my Blogger.com account. NO! Why is it that everyone on the Internetz think they constantly need to tinker with their webpages – NOT taking into account the difficulties this causes for a Visually Impaired Hack, albeit one Grizzled ‘Journo has referred to us cut ‘N paste  Bloggers as Monkey’s with typewriter’s; OUCH!

Thus, joining the small list of WORST websites is Motorsport.com, who’ve decided to completely GOOBER their Homepage by changing to a black background with dark blue text? As I simply CANNOT see it; SHEISA! Not to mention now making it IMPOSSIBLE to click on the corresponding racing tabs, i.e.; F1, IndyCar, GP2, WRC, etc. So here’s your sign – you Bastardoes! As has anybody noticed how hard it is to find a decent INDYCAR website these days?

Then there’s Gmail, who enjoy making internal page changes without any sort of announcement – like simply removing the Sign Out tab and  expecting Mwah to figure out I should now click upon the bold word NoFenders.net at the top of page and then hunt for the Sign Out tab somewhere below it! Or the fact that their nefarious advertisements completely BLOCK the body of email text and aren’t compatible with “Lucy” my ‘STEAMED! Screen-reader...

And Yahoo isn’t exempt from this hideous tinkering scheme either, as they recently changed the email login procedure and then wanted me to type in the SQUIGLY security code exactly, i.e.; numbers & letters in lower and upper case as seen onscreen – with Lucy reading the following prompt:  If your blind or visually impaired and cannot read this, simply cut ‘N paste the security code into the box above... WTF? How is a blind person supposed to SEE this and insert it into a tiny box on the webpage; Oh Never Mind!

This completes my Mini-rant ‘bout the perils of the never ending tinkering with technology, as my ‘Ol School VCR inexplicably jumped forward 1hr on Sunday, April 3rd, which used to be the original Daylight Savings time change – which Australia still observes; but NO! Our good ‘Ol Gubbment ‘N some DWEEB named George W Bush decided to manipulate this time manipulation back in ’07 by moving the time switch 3wks forwards and 1wk backwards to squeeze out another month of artificial light...

Hence, I managed to miss the first hour of the tape-delayed Calypso 500 V8 Supercars race from Adelaide that I attended live-in-person two weeks ago, as I was trying to figure out why it wasn’t making the humming recording noise at 4:12PM whilst eating lunch with SpeedCentre on as background noise... Hey, doesn’t everyone eat lunch at 4PM-ish when recovering from jetRAGG?
