Friends,

Before I share the comments you have sent in recently, let
me give the URL of the best-produced 911 video I've seen so
far -
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8260059923762628848
(by Loose Change). It's an hour and a half long, as a Google
video, with no pause button. You can also download it, which
I'm doing at the moment. The download monitor says "229 MB
of ?" and is still running.

best regards,
rkm

     rkm> First you go to: http://www.blogger.com/

Jackson: It takes me to: http://www.blogger.com/start

     rkm> Then you hit the link at the lower right: "sign up
     here"

Jackson: There is no link at the lower right that says "sign
up here."

Jackson,

Sorry for the confusion.

When you click on http://www.blogger.com/, it will take you
to http://www.blogger.com/start if you are a new user, and
to http://www.blogger.com/home if you are already
registered. You went to the right place.

You're right, it doesn't say "sign up here", it says "Create
Your Blog Now", which is a very confusing message in our
case. It SHOULD have said, "sign up here".

If you go to this URL
(http://www.quaylargo.com/help//blogspot.help.html) you will
be treated to a step-by-step guide showing you how to
register, with screen shots, live links, etc. If you use
that page, you'll end up being registered, I guarantee it.;-)

This guide is available on our blog's main page
(http://cyberjournal-rkm.blogspot.com/) via the link, "How
to register with Blogger"

When I started these blogs I didn't anticipate that one of
the major problems would be people's difficulty with the
blogging system itself. The Blogger system is actually very
well done, and mostly easy to use, but it does have some
glaring gaps in its user interface. They are assuming that
new users want to start a blog, and their interface works OK
for that. They fail to realize some new users don't want to
create a blog, but do want to register. Such users are left
out in the cold. My tutorial is meant to remedy that gap.
Once you get through that, you should have pretty smooth
sailing.

OK I just did register successfully. Now how do I get back to
URLnatomara711 to give more particulars?

Natalie,

Again, this is a gap in their user interface model. In my
registration tutorial, I explain how to go back and fill in
your profile. In fact, you only need to click on the orange
Blogger logo at the left top of Blogger page. It looks like
this: http://cyberjournal.org/images/blogs/blogger.jpg.

Dear Richard,

It is exciting to read such intelligent writing.  What a
break from the media tripe we are constantly fed.  (Did you
see the US ports deal will not happen after all.)

Since you are originally from Los Angeles, and this city was
the very first to suffer the loss of their transportation of
electric trains due to the collusion of the oil companies,
car mfg and tire mfg.  And furthermore, since the people of
Los Angeles sued these participants for antitrust
violation and WON-- awarded a measley $1 by the corrupt
court system.

Because the Texas-oil millionaire has told the World "we are
addicted to oil," when in reality this collusion of
eliminating "rival transportation" was all designed to paint
the American public into this particular corner, I think to
blame the public is in error.

What I wish to do is put the cities and their lost electric
train transportation on the map of public awareness.  There
have been at least 10 cities where the citizens have had
complete electric train service, only to have it sold and
dismantled by the oil companies.  I would like to see each
city's system on the Internet, along with a map and
explanation of who purchased it, and why they tore it down.

Hi Diana,

When I was a kid in Venice (part of LA), the red cars passed
near my apartment. They were the size and speed of trains
more than street cars. Removing them was a heinous theft of
the commons.

Chris,

Alas, you thought you left a comment but you didn't. Thanks
for trying.

When you finish typing your comment, you hit the link "Login
