Walkabout Wednesday: When Technology Conspires Against You

It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.

(I'm bringing along a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)

Walkabout, Week 69:

I have a very love/hate relationship with technology. I L-O-V-E the way it makes my life easier. I H-A-T-E the way it messes things up.

Case in point:

Google Reader has been the bane of my technological existence lately. Apparently, on Fridays Google Reader lists as my newest post an INFF interview that is approximately 2 months old. That's right folks. 2 MONTHS old. And, to make matters even more confusing, Wednesday's posts are correct.

As far as I have been able to discover, there is nothing I can do to fix this. So, those of you following this blog through Google Reader have probably missed the INFF interviews lately, because you have been seeing only reruns.

You have probably missed:

  • Terry Ervin and I discussing the finer points of "The Princess Bride"
  • An interview I did with "Peter Pilgrim," a really happenin' 17th-Century guy, and the advice I gave him on Pilgrim Pick Up Lines
  • Kim Coates and her fantastic Write Planner, a planner designed specifically for writers
  • The 4-year-old boy I interviewed while standing in line at the store and the imitation he did of his mother's driving tactics
I don't know how long this problem has existed, so I'm not sure how far back to go. If I figure out how to fix it, I'll let you know. In the meantime, join with me in a lament for the frustrations of technology.
