After all that resistence to change of the past weeks, I've finally capitulated and switched to the new version. Given that I do not foresee doing any dragging and dropping (whatever that may be) or any of the other claimed benefits, any change will go largely over my head.
No - I changed just for a quiet life. I got fed up with having to sign in everytime I wanted to create a new blog despite my not having signed out from a previous session. I'm quite sure that this new and unwanted process was just a lever applied to make me change.
Perhaps I shall now be able to get on with living my life the way I want it.
