Industry News

Another couple of entries for Wizbang's running list of blogspot defectors:
Jay Solo's Verbosity and Ghost of a Flea.

In other blog industry news:

Dano Can't Book 'Em
The Silflay Hraka trouble ticket at blogspot has finally been examined. The verdict:

Your issue has been linked with a known bug or item in the big Blogger "to-do list." Your issue will be updated, and you will be notified, when this dependency is updated. To see details on this item, click the link above.

The bug (link requires login) has a nice name, "Dano Capitalizing URL's" and a problem description:
After migration: Pro blogs URL are being set to publish on Blogspot to a file that contains caps.

What the bug lacks, according the listing, is a programmer to fix it.

Assigned To -- No one is assigned.

Dollars to doughnuts this is a result of moving from a Windows environment that doesn't notice such things, to a Unix environment that does. It's a common mistake, so common that someone should have thought about it beforehand. An experienced QA engineer would have found this out, suggesting that blogger currently lacks such a beast.

-----------------------------------

The Amish In Europe

Amish Technical Support's outing of Senator Orrin Hatch, something we had a small hand in, has surfaced in Europe, though in typical big media fashion there are no links and little in-depth research. Too busy to follow hyperlinks, or too dumb?

-----------------------------------

Hooking UP

The California Aggie on blogging: College students who spend their time talking about parties and secret crushes!

“Where do people find the spare time to do those sites?” UCD first-year managerial economics major Jennifer Tang asked. “I don’t understand what the purpose of it is. It’s only a way to make people believe that your life is actually interesting when it’s not. I know people who were too chicken to say something to someone’s face so they put it on the website, hoping they’d read it.”

-----------------------------------

Finally, Howard Kurtz has a round up of some blogosphere reaction to Bill O'Reilly's "Me good, Internet bad!" snivelling.

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

And all along I thought Amish Tech Support was a blog. Imagine my surprise when I found out it's actually a service that Blogger delivers to the folks who are hosted on Blogspot.

I pray that thou hast better providence with Movable Type.

Jennifer Tang huh? I wonder if she's in a sorority. Either way, I hope that last name isn't meant to be descriptive.
