A Cautionary Tale

One day a lady named Pamkittymorning sent an email to a famous friend giving her some advice. You know, instead of minding her own beeswax. She told her friend that her blog feed on Bloglines only showed up as "My Weblog" and she should change it. (if she knew what was good for her) Then she made her friend work on it like crazy all morning.
What the full-of-herself PKM didn't realize, changing her blogfeed name would in fact render all subscriptions to the old blog feed useless. All the people subscribed would be waiting and waiting for news and nothing would come.
So it turns out that PKM isn't the genius she thought she was.
So peoples, the only advice you should take from me today is to go visit her hopefully-still-friend Sherri and say hi, the now humbled PKM sent you. And if you're subscribed to her blog on Bloglines, please update your subscription.
If you could do that for me today, I'd really appreciate it.
Your friend. PKM

Hey, remember that time when we were walking across the San Rafael bridge, and you said, "hey, what's that down there?"... and I looked... and you told me I had to lean over more to see it... "no, lean more"... and I did... and then then I slid through that opening. Remember? Come on, you remember. You told me it was for the greater good.

You're a good friend PKM, and it was so nice of you to help your friend out.

Sounds as if Sheri may benefit from this! This computer stuff will kill ya. I accidentally screw things up pretty regularly. Most of us did not grow up with computers, therefore, we are digital immigrants. I think we are doing pretty good, when you look at it that way.

I wasn't subscribed to Sherry's blog but I went right over and subscribed so maybe that will help. Linda

he he... Pam, you crack me up! Just so you know, if you click on her name, and then click edit in the top blue bar, you can change the name of the subscription. But you probably figured that out by now. :-)
