Google Is Starting To Piss Me Off

Google has made changes where changes were not needed. I'm now having trouble signing in to my blog. The sign-in is totally different now. Now I get two options for signing in. One of the ones I clicked on this morning went to a page after doing my password that wanted me to either do a Google+ account or a new blogger profile. Had to shut that shit down because I couldn't get out of it. It didn't do a fucking thing when I clicked on the back arrow. Then tried again and got my blog, but could not find anything for doing a new post even tho it said I was signed in. Clicked on dashboard and got the same bullshit about doing new accounts and/or blogger profile. Had to shut down that tab and try again and finally was able to find the link for a new post so I could do this post to bitch about Google.

Some time back I made the mistake of doing Google+ and wound up with two Google+ sites, one probably linked from my blog and another from my YouTube account (YouTube wouldn't accept my 'nom de intratubes' [Kulkuri] and G-mail wouldn't either so I used a variation). I'd like to get rid of one of the Google+ accounts, but am afraid I'll lose my blogs and everything else if I try to delete one. I also have a G-mail account and yesterday I had a helluva time trying to see if there was anything new in my inbox. I don't use the G-mail account for much other than my K-Mart rewards thingee and when I want to send an e-mail to inquire about something on Craig's list, etc. and I don't want to use my other e-mail accounts.

Part of my problem may lie with my confuser. The Old Lady says she doesn't have any problems with blogger on her confuser.

I also was having trouble with my Yahoo e-mail after they made changes. Took me some time to figure out how to go to the next message without deleting. Instead of up and down arrows above the message they put in arrows on the sides of the message to go to next or previous message. At times had a helluva time trying to delete messages. Sometimes there wasn't anything I could do to delete messages and it would freeze up. I ran a my virus program and a cleaner and now it is working some better, but not sure if it is back to normal, or is this the new normal?? These two things my be related, but Google did make changes to blogger that didn't need to be changed like the sign-in page.

Bottom line is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"!!!!!! The fucking geeks need to learn that instead of changing shit just because they can and they think it may be better. Sometimes you don't need to improve something that is working as it is!!

Sometimes I've tried to improve something and fucked it up and wasted a lot of time trying to fix it to get it back to where it was when I started.


  1. With ya, Brother. A few months back, Gmail came up with a "new" look that did not need to be. It is a piece of shit...imo, that is. Not the least of which annoyance is that now in order to do caps, italics, etc, you have to go to the bottom of the comment section and click on an "A" symbol. Before, everything you might want to do was at the top...VISIBLE! Same damned problem with linking anything. You have to go searching for the fucking link symbol, which is hidden now...among other things.

    As to Blogger, for two months or so now, every time I sign in and click on Blogger Dashoard, it informs me that I am not following any blogs. As a matter of fact, I follow about 150 blogs...so what the fuck is that about? Added to that, half of the time it won't even pull up the dashboard. I have to click several times before I get it.

    Being a designer (retired), I can tell you the entire design world is on fucking LSD or some such. They have gone insane fixing shit that ain't broken...at least once a year. And Google is the worst.

    All I can advise you to do is...remind yourself that all of this is free. Otherwise it will make you nuts.

  2. Like I said, I don't use G-mail much. Never did like the way it worked, just did the G-mail account for the hell of it to see what it was like. Prefer hotmail and yahoo for e-mail, altho lately doesn't really seem like I need either as about all I get is political shit and spamm.

  3. The fucking geeks can't leave things alone, they want to keep changing and 'improving' things. And Google + really sucks, as does G-mail, I don't use it.

    Of course one of these days none of this shit will mean anything to either of us.

    Just kick back and have a fucking drink.

  4. I find Google running on my computer when I am connected to the internet...I sometimes get that High CPU usage by Google warning if I am typing something in Word. I have disabled Google a few time on my computer but always go back because the blog runs best on Google. What the hell does Google do in our computers when we are not looking?

    the Ol'Buzzard

  5. It's not the geeks doing it - it's the web designers. They're artsy crowd, not geeks.
