Oh right. I knew I forgot something.

Happy New Year.

I didn't conquer the world after all.

Or did I?
Blogger switched to a language combining the worst of both ColdFusion and XML.

My first impression is that it's lengthy and limiting; especially the loop structures and the explanations: exactly how does a person loop through multiple sets of data in a single pass with this new language? Without resorting to javascript to save the results? (Which is what I'll be doing ...)

The new wysiwyg editor is still buggy, as is the "Edit Posts" Page's search functionality.

Working in this new templating language will give me something to do while I revamp the page. It needs a fix anyway; the archives engine is dead.

Don't get me wrong - I love the widgets and layout positioning,

but Blogger Beta is still very much Beta
