F*CK*NG BETA!

I don't have Blogger Beta, I don't want to switch to Blogger Beta, so Blogger won't let me post to Beta sites...at all! I was already signed in and I went to two different blogs who have switched to Beta, and what happens? Beta says that I have to sign in. So I sign in and Beta says that is not my password! WHAT THE FUCK?

At any rate, Becka? Love your new avatar pic and that version of "Jingle Bell Rock" is the cheesiest. Figures, Hall & Oates turned Philly into the City of Brotherly Cheesesteak.

Dani? Glad that you got out of your surgery okay. That weird dream you were having was no dream, that was Verne "Mini-Me" Troyer during one of his drunken black outs. Plus, never publish that your holding Percocet, you'll wind up with Paris, Nicole or Courtney on your doorstep.

LOL!! I'm sorry I ever switched over, but it was all so new and exciting and well, new stuff is new stuff dude. What really blows is that Blogger isn't even addressing the problem.

But....but I love talking about my lovely Percocet. We've made up and are on good terms again. No worries on the celebrewhore front, I could fight off all three stick figures with my night splint.

Dani,

Jeez, there you are! That's the thing, most companies won't push anything with the word "beta" that hard, knowing that it's chock full of bugs. As a matter of fact, beta should mean bugs eat testers alive.

Yours was the first blog that I encountered that problem with. It kept telling me to sign in and I screamed at the screen "I am signed in!" It was a Curly from the Three Stooges moment, except I was the one getting poked in eyes.

Brat,

"i hate this beta blogger thing, but it looks like we will all eventually be forced to 'upgrade."

Last time I checked, the act that they're performing on us, is illegal to do to people in all fifty states.

I've been having the same Beta Blocker troubles. I've found that I can post as Anonymous or Other if those options are enabled on Beta Blogs. Argh.

Dale,

I appreciate that, but I fear that eventually some joker would try to post as me, if I would post to other blog's comment sections, without signing in under my blog name.

Just sign up for Blogger Beta! C'mon, everyone's doing it. What are you...chicken??

I finally just switched because I got tired of the comment problems AND was sick of seeing that "switch now!" message every time I logged in to regular Blogger.

Oh and thanks for the compliment on the new pic. I'm not normally purplish-blue, but for my blog that was just the right hue.

When, and only when, they work out the bugs.

"Oh and thanks for the compliment on the new pic. I'm not normally purplish-blue, but for my blog that was just the right hue."

It is an outstanding pic, but yeah, I don't think that hue would do a whole lot in real life, this side of the zombies in Trenton.

wp, you need a google gmail account for beta blogger. I know it sucks. I don't use it either. I'm a dino, too.

do you need a gmail account? I have hundreds.

beta's driving me nuts too... and blogger won't let me switch so i am reduced to commenting as "other" in some places- which of course means i can't leave behind my psychedelic butterfly dragon when i have visiteds someone...

Katie and Angela,

Thanks for the ultimate two strikes, I'm not going Beta unless it becomes mandatory.
