“The book American Gods wishes it was.” --Despina Durand

Aaargh! So the next morning, I took a look at my first post, figured I'd do some after-the-fact tweaking, 'cuz I'm a writer and we do that kind of thing, tried to put the links in, and -- Aaaargh! -- it disappeared!

What really has me feeling like an idiot was that it nuked the two comments that I got right away. Sorry about that, guys! I really appreciate that I got comments within hours of my first posting. I'll try not to screw things up like this again.

But then, my love/hate relationship with technology does provide a great deal of amusement for those who witness it. Now it can have a wider audience.

Anyway, after a break, and some food & drink, I got back on the horse and the post is back -- sadly, the comments aren't -- but I did figure out how to do links!

If you haven't figured it out, I'm one of those people who can't use computers without a lot of profanity.

Or, as Marshall McLuhan said in War and Peace in the Global Village:

"When one has been hurt by new technology, when the private person or the corporate body finds its entire identity endangered by physical or psychic change, it lashes back in a fury of self-defense."

Or: Aaaargh!

See, I'm just getting started and it's already gotten gonzo!
