UNACCEPTABLE.

As the moderator of a public blog you are OBLIGATED to maintain complete functionality of your blog at all times. This failure to provide content represents a shameful breach of contract.

If this state of affairs continues, legal proceedings may be initiated; questions may be asked in Parliament - at the very least, I can assure you that a sternly-written letter to the editor will appear in tomorrow's Windsor Falls Post Dispatch.

I expect to be compensated for this inconvenience with some especially grisly pre-code shockers.

The new interface is amazingly-buggy.
I'm slowly getting the hang of it, but posting tskes at least twice as long as it used to!
Irritating as hall...

New Blogger needs to be hanged, drawn, and quartered. I'm seriously considering moving over completely to WordPress, where my own comic strip is already hosted. I wonder who the hell came up with this Blogger "upgrade" and thought it was a good idea.

It's so weird. Everything looks and works pretty much the same from this end, except Blogger used to open files with a little tag at the end of the URL--right before the file name--that displayed images at a height of 1600p (whether that was the full size or not, it turns out). And now it does not do that anymore. This means that when you click on the image link, you get the compressed display thumbnail blogger automatically makes when you upload, and if you right click and select "view image," you see that thumbnail, but somewhat enlarged to whatever your template asks it to display at on the main page.

It's possible to add that tag manually (it looks like this: s1600/ ), and you can even change it to display larger, up to the original file size. For example, I can see the images of the latest AEET post up to 1885p in height. In the past, they would have opened reduced some, to 1600p, but not so much it mattered. But I've been adding the tag /s5000/ to these URLs, just to see if they will display larger than 1600, and often I can see an even larger size. Turns out it doesn't matter how *large* the size value in that tag is, it will only change the display size to reduce. But the tag is necessary to show images displayed up to the size of the original file.

Why blogger automatically included that tag in the URL before, and why they do not include it automatically now, is a big mystery to me. But I feel like it would be possible to add that tag manually into the HTML for the post, same as any other web address. This may be the workaround other users are using. Or there may be something easier I can't divine yet.

"Or maybe there may be something I can't divine yet" I was looking at this sentence and thought,well, with it being "The Horrors of It All" and the first of October, there must be a dark version of the word "divine"as in:
may be something easier I can't *infern* yet ?

Ah well in any case I hope things are well and sort themselves out for Mr Karswell! I am a devoted stalker of THOIA
