Boy do I dislike programmers. Don't get me wrong - they are indispensable to do a job that bored the hell out of me. But they have absolutely no idea of how to work with the public, their scheduling sucks and their idea of staying within a budget is laughable. (Before I retired, I was a system architect and managed a computer support group - so have some idea of what I'm talking about).
More and more, I see changes being made by programmers, with explanations being gibberish or non-existEnt. Google e-mail. is a perfect example. It has improved vastly since its inception, but at the beginning was awful. Chrome's takeover of blogspot is another case in point. I simply wish that those silly buggers would TEST what they're doing before they inflict the poor users.
But I'll get off my soapbox now and end this diatribe. Thanks again, Suzi.
Remember how I made a deal for a missing story of mine some months back? Looks like I have to do it again. Seem to have lost a story of mine. "Home is Where the Hearth Is." Anybody that wants to send me a .doc version of this? I'll give you a choice of any of my books (see my Smashwords library) as a swap. First one to send me that story wins!
I'm not exactly trusting Chrome yet, so don't want to get into any serials until I'm more positive that they won't screw me up again - so I think I'll try complete short stories again for a while. One thing about publishing my books is that it's forced me to get more organized and I'm finding quite a few stories that I published in Bea;s TV Channel back in the early 90's - so even older readers of mine may come across a few surprises.
As I was doing, I'll add a few of Rosie's 'bits' at the end - so watch out for them. But anyway? Glad to be back! Here's my story: "Nanny'" I hope that you enjoy it,
