Everybody Knows Your Name

“Why yes, I must confess that I did live in that house, but I moved away almost two years ago.”

“No way! Really? Two years ago?”

“Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve been back to the neighborhood. Is that tavern over on Fourth Avenue still there?”

“It is. Would you like to go over there and have a drink? I’m parched.”

“Yes I would. I used to go to that place all the time.”

“Great. What’s your name again?”

“You’ll find out when we get there. As soon as I walk in, all the regulars will call out my name and say hello to me.”

“Even though you haven’t been there in two years?”

“Sure,” said Norm. “At Cheers, everybody knows your name.”3D1288C8-C92C-498C-BF21-AC4562D3F9AF

    I think you moving to a once a week prompt is a fine idea. It gives those of us who like doing a one-at-a-time prompt the space to decide and wait for what we want to do and hope for a little burst of inspiration. Also, remember, some of us participate in a bunch of photo-prompts, too, so the volume of prompts gets totally wacko. I still am holding a lot of resentment towards WP. It wasn’t such a big deal for them. That IS why we pay them, isn’t it?

    Did you get their notice that they are COMPLETELY changing their format? No small stuff this time. I didn’t figure out entirely what they are doing, but they are changing the way we put the posts together, which is supposed to fix problems, but I’m sure will to be a disaster for the interval until they get it sorted out. I got so depressed reading the notice, I deleted it.

    What will be, will be.

    The irony is that way back when — long before I realized Facebook never bothers to beta test their software before dumping it on us — I had hoped for a more flexible format for texting — which is what they are promising this time. It ] sounds complicated but eliminates the need for individual coding.

    If it WORKS, which nothing they have implemented has ever done without lots of tweaking (and some of it has never worked, period), that would be great. They promise individual blocks that can be uniquely formatted. Terrific idea, but they are such klutzes in the way they produce software, I’m terrified it will be a complete disaster and NOTHING will work.

    It’s supposed to work on phones, computers, laptops, iPads, as well as any other widget you might use.

    In theory, it’s a wonderful idea.

    In practice … well. I guess we’ll see.

      I saw something about a new editor, but so far I haven’t seen evidence of it on the WordPress iPhone app or on the editor on the WordPress website I use in Safari to write posts on my iPhone.
