The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

The sincerest form of flattery?

The moment Lady Bracknell espied the new Zoom Cloud which that reputable and respected gentleman, the Gorse Fox, published on his blog last week, she knew she would not rest until her own blog was similarly graced.

As with previous occasions on which the editor has been required to add new programming to the blog template, Lady Bracknell has had to stop her ears against foul language and ill humour. Lady Bracknell knows little about Information Technology, but even she can recognise that the editor would be singularly unsuited to paid employment within that particular profession.

However, what the editor lacks in knowledge and skill, she makes up for in dogged perseverance, and Lady Bracknell's very own Zoom Cloud now forms an integral part of this blog. Readers wishing to gasp in awe at the cloud's beauty will need to scroll down to beyond the list of recommended websites.

(The editor has asked Lady Bracknell to assure bloggers desiring clouds of their own that designing the cloud is simplicity itself: it was persuading the programming to "take" in the template which reduced her to inchoate rage. She was, in the end, brought so low as to take a peek at the Gorse Fox's own template for assistance by right-clicking on his blog and selecting the "view source" option.)

I turn the Gorse Fox was inspired by the inspirational scratchings of "Atyllah the Hen - Chicken with Attitude" and her blog. He can accept no credit.
(Though he does recommend both "Qumana" and "Performancing" as great tools for creating blog posts)

Lady Bracknell has made enquiries of the editor on Wilf's behalf.

Apparently it is possible to choose the number of tags one wants to see in one's cloud at the design stage.

However, Lady Bracknell is of the opinion that Wilf has made the right choice for his blog's template.

It will be interesting to watch the various clouds evolve over time.

A most impressive cloud, Lady B - and I fullly understand the Editor's frustrations and foul language.

Good to know you were also inspired Gorse Fox. I do so enjoy shedding a little light amongst humans. ;-)

Thankyou, Lady Bracknell. You're a top toff and no mistake.
