Is WordPress.com a memory pig?
No. At least not under normal workflows.
I posted a couple of the old myspace blog files tonight (I put them under a password. They are just for me). The last time I played this game it was a TON easier than it is now. I used to be able to type in the post date. I can’t do that now. I have to select the date from a calendar. Not a big deal until you consider that the dates I was using were in January 2007 and I had to click back, one month at a time. That’s a lot of clicks. I’m not sure why, but the more months I clicked through, the more memory I was devouring. By the time I got back to 2007 for the second time I had brought Google Chrome to its knees and I was frozen out of anything I tried. I then switched to Apple Safari and again I got onto the second post before it was done.
That puts a bit of a damper on the whole myspace project.
