Gone like yesterday.

True to their word, AOL pulled the plug on the Journals this morning. All links lead back to the People Connection Page, with is full of dead links that circle back by default. And my blogs, all safely transferred to Blogger, are full of little boxes with red X's where photos stored on my ftp once appeared. Fortunately I have all of the files on my hard drive and I can find out the name of the files by clicking on the X's but matching the files and uploading them to the corresponding posts will be mega-time consuming. Thanks AOL, thanks a whole fricken lot!
Oh well, at least the blogs themselves were saved without any problem. I still can't find myself feeling appreciative for AOL's assistance in making it all possible. Grrrrrrrrrr!

The Comment

I wait, I listen breathlessly.
I can almost hear the sound
Of someone reading.
Is it real or imagined,
The tentative tap, tap, tapping
Of somebody typing.
I pounce on the mouse
And it clicks in protest
But a page opens up.
I read and I smile.
Or I flush with rage.
Either way its addictive,
The rush that I get
From a comment.
