Mr. Teachbad is currently engaged in a technological quest for which he is deeply lacking in both talent and expertise.
You see, I am trying to upgrade the blogsite. We’re talking about hosting and reconfiguring all sorts of things………………………………………………………………………………………..Stop….
I thought I could write something funny about this. I can’t. It’s not funny. It sucks. I truly hate this. Every time I figure out some little shitty part of something I find that it only leads me down a dark hallway full of rusty nails that I can’t even see. In fact, you could step on a rusty nail and not even know for days. That’s what’s frustrating about this.
Let’s say I was building a table. I figure out how tall I want the table to be and I cut me some legs. Now I’ve got 4 legs for my table. I touch them. I feel them. I look at them and I realize that one is 4 inches shorter than the others. I know immediately that I have made a mistake. I know that if I continue on my present course, building a table in this way, with one leg shorter than the others, that a highly compromised and unsatisfying table will result. I know where I am. I cut a new leg. Done and on with my life.
In WebWorld, it is different. In this place, I am a blind man. I can do nothing on my own. I rely on the goodwill of friends and tech support. This is when you find out who your friends REALLY are…you are a 41-year-old curmudgeon who wants to upgrade his website. Who comes to the rescue? It’s Jay and Creighton.
Thanks, guys. But I still don’t know what the hell is going on.
Meanwhile I…as we work through this transition….let’s call it “growing pains”, I will leave you with a post from around this time last year about summer school. It’s called Summer School Sucks Dog Balls.
Meanwhile II…in the new format I have included a Top Ten Posts…these are the posts that people seem to like the most…just FYI.
Meanwhile III…as we revamp the whole thing, if there is anything really burning in your heart that you would like to see on the Teachbad Blog, now is the time to let me know. email@example.com
