Fraggle Rock and the toaster from stoneage

Bangalore is quagmired in perennial construction activity. It sometimes reminds me of the puppet show Fraggle Rock that our good old DD used to air when we were kids. The show was all about adventures of these little, soft, furry, colorful, adorable creatures who used to live and work underground. Besides these colorful puppets, the show would occasionally feature armies of tiny construction workers building glass towers; which our little protagonists would munch into (suddenly, for no obvious reasons).

If you walk past construction site of a new building, you are bound to notice these funny concrete bricks which look like scraggy electric toasters from stone age (that they remind be of the Flintstones is a different matter altogether)

Darn

Now blogger won't let you post with a name and an URL unless you have a blogger account.

This sucks as a site policy! One big bad mark for blogger!!!

Ok

I made a dummy account just so my comments will at least have a name. I mean I don't want people thinking my parents named me Anonymous of all things

Hey Geets,

Yup, I finally threw away the side bars and centered the content. The links to the Archives are at the very bottom of the page now. Also hand-crafted a tiny "Atom" icon that links to my Atom feed...

Am I done with it yet? Wish I knew :-)

Hi Nish,

Yup, they haven't quite got their comment system right. I did write to Blogger, and this is what they had to say:

"Thank you for your suggestions regarding our commenting system. As this is a new feature for us, we are very interested in getting input from users so we know how to improve the service. We will certainly take into account the issues you raised. "

Let's be kind and give them another chance ;-)
