Grrrrr!

If you wanted to reply to my Newswithviews piece today, and couldn’t because it said “Comments off,” it’s because I forgot to do the extra step that stupid WordPress has imposed on me if I want to enable comments. Otherwise stupid WordPress automatically disables them.

I had this blog for years without any problems at all, and now there’s a new one every day or two.

Hey, everybody! Let’s all hook our brains up to some kind of super-computer so we can all be as smart as WordPress!

Eeeeyahhh! I just forgot again! I’ll fix it right away.

    I know, it’s irritating. In a world dependent upon software, the companies that own that software yield immense power. In some matters, they can hold the government hostage.

    I don’t have an answer.

      How come none of these changes ever make things easier, but only make them harder?

        Some of it is security. That’s why the bank wants a cell phone number. It’s callec two-factor authentication and it works. You logon to your bank’s website and your phone receives a four digit code. Until you enter that code the website won’t let you in. That way, even if someone knows you username and password, they can’t access you account. They need to be in physical possession of your phone too. Clever.

        I would bet that many of the changes made by WordPress are done in the name of security too, but I’m not certain that all of them are needed. My Apple TV, a gadget that connects my TV set to certain online content, has recently started requiring 2 factor authentication, which makes little sense in a gadget never leaves the house. The problem is, the two factor authentication doesn’t work well and I spent a frustrating hour working at using it a couple of days ago. If this keeps on happening, two factor authentication might make sense because it will leave my house, on the toe of my boot. 🙂

      P.S.–I lost your email before I could reply to it. Too many plates to juggle today.

      I think it’s safe to say that with Robbie it’s a case of so far, so good. We’ve had her blood work done several times, and it always checks out. She’s gained back all the weight she lost and in all ways seems her old self again.
