SMALL MATTERS

I have a few posts in the works today but you will have to return later as I am currrently handling various minor tasks. One of which is trying to figure out why my Picasa program that loads photos into Blogger will not let the UI initialize and log in; I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled twice as per their advice but no dice. If anyone has an idea before I start the tech support help ticket treadmill I’m all ears.
