This is a TEST of RAVEN


In my search for a way to continue blogging beyond the "new blogger interface" which I don't like very much, I am testing Raven, an "offline" blog editing system.

The computer I am writing this on is running an old OS, Windows Millenium Edition. I am on a dial-up connection. The purpose of this experimental post is to try out a few of the neat bells and whistles on Raven, and observe how many of them translate or transmigrate properly to Blog*Spot.

Raven has some features that surprised me! (More on that later) - There is also an option to install Raven on a thumb or USB drive. Imagine that. You could run it off a thumb drive!

There is a "configure" tab that gives some options you don't see on regular blogger. I'm interested to know if they will work ... so here goes...

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
