I have two posts started and saved in draft mode and I'm actually posting this during lunch hour at work.
After intermitent bursts during the past two weeks my ISP provider finally arrived to the conclusion that the cable modem is acting up and will probably need to be replaced. The technician will come over by next Friday and I'm taking the day off to be home both for the ISP technician and for the central air conditioner technician. Another one that has been a bother in these sweltering days we're having.
Posting has been painful to say the least. The connection to the Internet at home goes on the blink every 2 minutes or so, making the work of either posting, reading other blogs, or commenting, extremelly time consuming.
I've tried to keep up with my favourite blogs (my bloglines feeder lists 87) and at the same time work in my new template. For a while now I've been first thinking and then slowly changing my template to reflect something that is only mine. Since my knowledge of Cascading Style Sheets is minimal I started to slowly change elements in the template I now use, publishing and seeing the results, changing it again... you know the drill! I have a test blog called Ana's Test Blog (how's that for originality) which I used for the first time to play around with the list commands when I decided to document the history of the 5 Cookbook Meme.
I am very pleased with the way my new template is coming up, but I'm having a hard time with some unexpected glitches. Hopefully, I will be able to get them out of the way so that I can transpose my new template to this blog. It probably will not be before the weekend, if I'm so lucky..
