« Another Souvenir Altogether | Main | Memo to Ms NOLA »


If the Daily Blague vanishes from your computer in the next couple of days, that's because I've signed up for an upgrade. The gifted technical folks at MovableType will take care of it - provided that I can understand their requests. MovableType is afflicted with multiple personalities. The tech support is super; I have been bailed out of every problem I've encountered by patient, good-humored women (I don't recall dealing with a gent). But the latest go-round has made me wonder if the reason I've needed tech support in the first place isn't the grimly uncommunicative prose of its manuals and bulletins. These make grammatical sense but convey nothing to the uninitiated. Whoever's in charge of writing English at MovableType ought to be fired, yesterday. MovableType already has a great product; now it ought to work on its partnership with its customers.
