I posted to my Blogspot blog a few minutes, of an entry that took all day to finish only to discover that Blogger/Blogspot had been having troubles with uploaded images in what it calls “image backend problems” since late March 2010.
No, it hasn’t been resolved and I did post to Blogger’s support forum just before this [Posterous] entry, thus:
“Posted an entry a few minutes ago and did a work-around:
uploading the image to a 3rd-party image hosting site from Blogspot’s image source, then linking the image from the 3rd-party site into the post in the hope of circumventing Blogspot’s “backend” problem but I still got a blank space where the image is supposed to be.
Otherwise, all other images and videos in older posts appear fine.
Hope the problem is resolved very soon.”
I am listening to all of Nature’s collection of drum rolls in its arsenal right now.

Really, when Nature puts on a show, everybody halts to listen, watch or do some inward reflection.
After all, what else can we do when caught in a light show in the mid-afternoon, with incessant rolling and barreling and banging of the skies above, and a burst, an unstoppable flow of the skies’ mighty waters that rushes our negligence away.
And then, a deafening silence. And a sigh. And then the sound of every body’s routine creeping back in, slowly breaking the hush, taking over what was, for a few minutes there, a reminder of our fragility.
Here is my Saturday evening weather as posted on my posterous. It was dark at around 6 pm on my way home (two hours earlier), with some areas experiencing mean lightning streaks. The image is a grab from my imapweather.com page which I also signed on to recently.
Not so sure about heading for a dinner in Makati City now.
Take note, a rain-and-thunder weekend at the height of summer in the Philippines.
I didn’t go because it rained again an hour after I posted this.
Something interesting I found out in idle moments tonight: when I signed up for Twitter — 778 days ago today (on 10 March 2007). I don’t see anything useful with this information except that I don’t have to load all my past Twits to find out.

I signed up with posterous.com to try it out today. Not a bad, simple blog site.
and so, say, when asked, what is new in the web? probably that word gets passed around faster than ever, it’s stale even before it’s posted.
