Setting up a Facebook page has made me decide to post here. Here, I can put things in the order I want them to appear. There, no control. It all stacks up in reverse order like some crazed reverse polish notation of personal information. It's not at all ideal. It's a McDonald's sort of affair, where it's guaranteed to be at a certain level of quality, but not much more. Geocities (remember them?) dumbed down with some stock widgets tossed in. Ecch. It's making my reflux act up, just dealing with the stresses of not having it do precisely what I want it to do, which I can do with the tools I've chosen for my website. I edit in plain text, test on the server itself, and use elegant solutions to creating my pages. I want them to be just right. Facebook doesn't give me that option. Honestly, if I could just have that page redirect here, I'd be fine with it. People would say, "where's your Facebook, dude?" and I'd shoot 'em a link that would take 'em here. Slam and dunk.
I mean... I've been on this Internet, on one site or another, since 1995. I've learned how to hack HTML and use a CSS and SSI. I can FTP, TELNET, and all kinds of other things to get my site and email tested and running just right. I've had this site since 1998 and this blog since 2003. By the way, since the program I use to write my blog doesn't do an RSS feed, I'll probably have to change to a new system. So it goes... I may go with Thingamablog, as that's what I use for AOHell.com.
Maybe I'll get used to it. Maybe I won't. My wife enjoys it very much and this is one way of sharing that with her. I do want it to work out because I love her ever so much.
Ah, the things we do for love!
