I see that Jim of Starcross has,albeit reluctantly, returned to Blogger, having switched to Wordpress in protest at Google's tax practices. I sympathise with both actions. Whatever the faults of Google and Amazon - and I am wholeheartedly signed up to the view that in some respects they are the work of the devil - I not only use them, but also respect them, for one overriding quality that their competitors somehow lack: they make things easy. I don't buy from Amazon to save money; I do it to save hassle. And to my mind, that is a key and very significant part of providing a good service - which should be recognised and supported whatever their other faults.
Another back to home mooring trip.
