It's Tuesday, which means it's part of my mid-week weekend, the first day to be precise. Mowing the lawn is on the list of chores for today, so is getting a haircut. Yep, it's that time of year. I try to get as few haircuts as possible. I dislike the entire process, mostly because I end up having to deal with a barber who feels compelled to talk. My idea of the perfect haircut is sitting down in the chair for 3 - 4 minutes while your hair is being cut and then leaving. Unfortunately, that never happens.
It seems to be Blogger's been running slower lately. When this happens my suspicious eye always looks at Microsoft. My new computer runs Windows 11 and Microsoft is in competition with Google, or Alphabet, or whatever it's called right now, and, of course, Blogger is a Google product. So, is Microsoft practicing a bit of competitive slowness?
I've started watching Amazon's Lord of the Rings prequel, The Rings of Power. So far, so good. The only issue I have is that there are only 8 episodes in Season 1 and if you have to wait a year between seasons, well, this thing's going to run forever and I'm only going to live for so long. Of course, this is a problem I have with series in general, it doesn't make a difference whether it's Amazon, or Netflix, of Disney, in order to get these shows to run for decades, they give you 8 - 10 episodes and then tell you you're going to need to wait over a year for the next season. They are competing against each other and, over time, this will work against them over time. Because so many shows are being put into the competitive cycle some other series will become more popular.
