.Text still sucks

Satur­day 26 Fe­bru­ary 2005 19:51

This .Text blog­ging con­fig­u­ra­tion cur­rent­ly has 29 dif­fer­ent styles to choose from, but no way to not use any of them. Just not us­ing a stylesheet is not pos­si­ble in this piece of shit. To use a de­cent style I can cre­ate my own cus­tom stylesheet (which cur­rent­ly con­tains "@im­port url('http://www.xs4all.nl/~ipen­burg/blog­ger/com­mon.css');" so I can di­rect­ly edit it on that serv­er), but for my cus­tom stylesheet to make sense it needs to over­ride what­ev­er crap is put in one of the 29 bloat styles. And there it ends. I will no longer strug­gle with this an­noy­ing ap­pli­ca­tion and just run my own blog on my own serv­er.

I don't know how that will af­fect my Google rank­ing, but look­ing at my re­fer­rers I'm get­ting ranked way to high for my com­fort. Just men­tion­ing some­thing out of the or­di­nary gets it in the top 10, and it's not even that im­por­tant, since I'm re­al­ly try­ing to not be im­por­tant by men­tion­ing noth­ing in a way that could be use­ful for any­one that doesn't know what is go­ing on any­way.
