Well, kiddies, for better or for worse, I succumbed to the inevitable and I'm now in the Beta Version of Blogger. When this happened, I had to conform my password to my google member id. The short form of all this is that I have lost my ability to comment on some others' blogs as "UMRBlog"--the Beta ate my password.

So I've reinvented myself as UMRBlogII. That is not an imposter. It's me and, as I have done scrupulously since I started bloghosting, I never post anonymously on anyone's site.

Sorry for the change in procedure.

Yes I noticed the same on some newer blogs .

Why I never "upgrade/downgrade" until things are truely fixed !

Know any Mizzou fans ? I got free tickets for Sat AGAIN !

Even with a one loss Mizzou -- I almost have to give the tickets, tank of gas, my own car, and $300 in travel cash to GIVE the tickets away.

The Chief Googs tell me it's transitional and there'll be peace in the valley soon.

It's what happens when you play East Cupcake five times and TTU in the wind. It's called waiting seven weeks to start the season.

I got the idea off Quincy Fire post reading your comment !

If not I may try my SPEED on Broadway then I can match their ticket and raise it 1 .

I think I would come out ahead , because i would just have to pay a fine and not have to GUT through Big 12 "football"

Uncle Tony ,

We have a reader now called the Ticket Looter. Poor guy had to do some work to get the Looter phone , but he will attend the MIZZOU game .

I will chalk this up to the POWER of the Internet .

I use several browsers to check into various blogs including yours.

Since your update to Beta, one of them, Opera, will not load your site nor does the cursor work on whatever video I do get.

PLEASE change back

Anon 1004,

The Googs now tell me that, once "beta'd", I cannot change back. I am truly sorry. I waited two months to bit and thought it was pretty well debugged.

Opera and one other popular browser just flat can't read any of the Goog-blogs yet. They promise they are "working on it".

Only thing I can suggest is that you download the new Mozilla Firefox 2.xx beta. It's opening everything just fine and the Googs have the beta version of blogger completely debugged as to FF.

Had I known, I wouldn't have made the jump. The additonal features are not worth inconviencing my little community.

If I could go back, I would. Only hope is that this is very temporary.

TYFCB and sincere apologies.

Thanks for the reply on my Opera browser problem. By chance I happened to hit the button to make it "full screen" and everything seems to work properly as I type this coment.

Obviously - spell checker not working or not used

Googs are still running apologies that compatibility is only good with IE and Firefox.
