Another mishap occured today. I got a blank page when loading the blog in my browser. After some problem solving, I found that the newsfeed I added the other day caused the error. I replaced the newsfeed with some old Web 1.0 static links. Ironic, isn't it? The newsfeed being a Web 2.0 feature.

Finally I managed to get a Flickr
account. It has taken me days! You are supposed to use your Yahoo account and, of course, I had forgotten mine. So, over to Yahoo
to retrieve my username and password. Luckily I could retrieve my username, which was mailed to me, but for some obscure reason you have to go back to Yahoo and redo the whole procedure in order to get your password. I tried and I tried and I tried, but got error message upon error message upon error message.
I gave up, almost. Exasperated, yet I continued as I'm on several mailing lists at YahooGroups. Since Yahoo started using RSS feeds for the mailing lists, I too switched to RSS feeds instead of having my inbox clogged. It's such a stress factor to see your unread e-mail as it nears 200, 300, 400, 500. It's less stressful with RSS feeds, at least in Safari. I can pretend they don't exist.
But, obviously I haven't been at YahooGroups for very long. The log-in page did not recognize me and there is no way for me to post to the lists anymore, unless I sign up anew. The scary thing is that it must have been years since I posted to a list over there. I've completely forgotten my social networking manners! Too busy trying to catch up with Web 2.0. Makes you think, doesn't it?
To make a long story short, I signed up for a new account. But by then I was too exhausted to check out the site, even less to network.

Added a plug-in for an RSS feed on Web 2.0. Parameters had to be tested and configured before I got the newsfeed to work, but now it's right there in the right column. Must keep oneself updated, doesn't one?
