You say it's going to happen now / But what exactly do you mean? / See I've already waited too long / And all my hope is gone.
I'm badly needing the upgrade to the new-and-improved Blogger Beta, and I've heard that customized templates can affect who gets picked to make the transition. Though the old template was only slightly customized, for all I know it was enough to prevent me from getting to new system, which, once in place, will allow me to dispense with manual Technorati tags and this hokey wannabe label system I've been grouping on and use real post labels. This feature, more than anything else, will help this blog by allowing old content to me more accessible.
Thus, you'll have to put up with this standard-issue Blogger template until the Beta transition happens.
