Would you please stop STEALING my spaces and paragraph breaks! You have to understand that I am particularly compulsive about my data. I once re-did an entire 60 page document because the author had only put ONE space after her periods and there MUST be two! I don’t know why – it’s a compulsion, it’s not supposed to make sense!
As I am typing this, I am using all the appropriate punctuation and spacing. Two spaces after each period and two returns after each paragraph. However, I know the moment I digitally turn my back on you, HALF of these spaces will magically disappear in the mere blink of an eye.
Is there some kind of a space shortage that we don’t know about? Are there not enough spaces and paragraph marks for all? Is this a cost-cutting measure? Are you donating my confiscated spaces to some impoverished African nation? I don’t care. I want them back! I paid for them and they are MINE!
Well, Blogspot is free, so I guess I didn’t really pay for them, but they’re technically just air anyway, so I shouldn’t have to pay for them anyway. I believe AIR is still the one free thing in these United States. At least until Congress gets ahold of it. (I almost said “gets wind of it”, but that was just too punny!)
However, I do have a little secret weapon. You see, unlike the average computer user, I have a secret knowledge of HTML code. I know that if I remember to go back and put a little bit of top secret HTML code in, I can at least salvage my paragraph breaks. I still haven’t figured out the secret for saving my spaces, but don’t worry, I will. I have a team of NASA scientists working on it…..
