And putting my energies elsewhere, I'm finding that upgraded software changes user interfaces. And it's really annoying.
Like this software that runs my blog. I couldn't find squat and ended up spending money which I didn't want to do, but I couldn't do what I used to be able to do. Still can't post a poll, there's a free software out there, but I don't have the time (or inclination) to make it work. Another one that was supposed to work out of the box, didn't. At least, not how I wanted it to. There was no trial period with that one, so I had to ask for a refund. For now, no polls.
And my pogoplug. I got another one last year, for free when you sign up for a family plan - $19.95 a year. Well, in eight months I'd done nothing with it, so I cancelled it. The software, I still have that Pogoplug in the box. Because I already have a Pogoplug. Well, I've got two Pogoplugs. One of the things I like about them is I can have people upload stuff to my computer. Instead of burning photos to a disk and sending them snail mail, they can just send them directly to an external hard drive on my system. At any time of day or night.
They've changed the software. I spent three hours this morning trying to figure out how to send the invite. I was almost ready to quit and just install an upload script on one of my websites. Then I checked the FAQ for Pogoplug and now what I wanted do to was called "collaboration". And it's good, people can still upload to my computer when I sent them an invite.
