I've been working on a post overnight on Obama's FY2011 budget. Blogger has eaten it. Will try to reconstruct it and post later this eve. My apologies for lack of posting.

PS - When I occasionally manage to get around to making a post, I find it easier to write it up on something like Notepad first, and then when it looks like I'm almost there, copy & paste it into Blogger's post editor. Make sure that Word Wrap is turned OFF in Notepad before copying from it.

Why Notepad? It's pure text, and saves a lot of headaches when making something to be copied into an HTML editor. And, of course, I have a fallback if Blogger's editor fails for some reason.

Unfortunately, it doesn't cure writer's block; which is my excuse for not posting much new, even though I have several on the back burner; just don't know yet where to continue with them. (Think there's enough semi-colons there? ;-)

There are better alternatives to notepad which perform the same function. I've always been fond of TextPad, but that's not the only one around. MultiEdit is also popular.

You sure that wasn't more of an "OOOOOOhhhh!??!", of surprise and dismay?

Beware of the vicious rabbit.
