I have been busily meddling with the software side of this weblog in order to _(hopefully soon)_ have a fotolog of my own crackling in my menubar. The problem is, that I am a designer, not a technologist. I want to pick up my mouse and speak into it…
“Computer? Hello Computer?” Much like _Scotty_ in _*StarTrek V:* the search for Sperm Wales._
Technology, for being _”User Friendly”_ is not just that. I am a user and my computer is not my friend. The two of us struggle, on a day to day basis, for superiority.
I have been winning thus far, because I can still yank out it’s powercord, but for how long?
I want to create a fotolog that is beautiful much like my favorites:
* “Red Screen”:http://www.redscreen.net/photolog/
But I can’t just get something elegant up and running without painstakingly futsing with an electronic back-end that I was never destined to futs with. This is not the _Matrix_ and things in this world of computers isn’t cool and green drippy, like it is there. If the _Matrix_ were a real thing, out of the movies, it would have crashed because *Times New Roman* wasn’t installed.
The world as I know it, is not as slick as it may seem on your end. I enter code, get dialog boxes thrust in my face, and little click buttons that reproduce faster than rabbits.
And are not as cute, by the way.
I know I got myself into this little jam of computers, RAM(Random Access Memory), Memory Card, Mega Pixels, and Automatic Can openers, but sometimes all I wasn’t is a frigging PHOTO ALBUM!
