Vil de ikke så skal de

There is a Norwegian idiomatic phrase, "Vil de ikke så skal de." A joking way of noting how things work with one of the most common natural laws: Stubbornness. Literally translated, the phrase says, "If they won't, they shall."

I suspect Blogger of being Norwegian. Or that perhaps its users are. It seems too much of a "coincidence" that after weeks of wonky services and longish outages, that suddenly, everything's in place for everyone to move to Blogger Beta. Even us FTP-ing types.

So I did.

And dammit, Blogger had better behave now, or I'll get - stubborn or something. (Now, what to do with that WordPress account?)

Du kan lede en hest til vann, men kan du ikke få ham til å drikke, krysse eller snu - når du vil. ;-)

I still have yet to be able to migrate my site to blogger beta. Damn fascists.

It's almost like dealing with the government, ain't it.
