Just to let you all know I spoke to Dirk today and he is well.
The blog is forthcoming, real life has been busy but not to worry.
He's also asked me to post that he has been invited to speak on a macrobiotic cruise in March, 2009. I don't have all the details yet, he's sending the cruise folks to fill me in so I can share with you all. :)

Update:

Well Dirk spent an hour today composing a blog post and when he went to hit "preview" it went POOF. :cry: We're not quite sure where the glitch is coming from but we *are* working to solve the problem.

Just to let you all know that Dirk is indeed on board for the blog. Now we just need to shoo out the gremlins and he'll have a post for you all for Christmas :)

Don't mean to be cruel but my first reaction was ...

That's usually my son's first reaction when I try to do something and it doesn't work - until *he* sits down and actually sees what I did and what happens - and then his reaction is WTF?!

He forgets that just because I'm older, doesn't mean I don't know about cmputers - it really means I have enough experience to know how often software (and sites) get screwed up by the developers :wink:

I'm sure the glitches will be all worked out. Tell me about computer glitches....I work on those constantly. My customers ask me why are you talking to and swearing at the computer? :lol: It works all the time! I speak computer and the computers seem to know it.

Sounds like we need to teach him the copy and paste technique.

Dirk my friend - if you're reading this, just a tip from your techie friend, I work in computers all day long! And not to mention the 5 million times that that's happened to me in the past!!!

Write your blog in a word program first, save the document, then copy and paste the text into the blog text window. This way, if it goes Poof :shock: again, you won't lose all your hard work! I know how frustrating that can be. This is usually only required if you plan to spen a long time writing your post, and I think I speak for us all when I say how honored we all are that you would spend so much effort on posting a blog for us! Thank you!

Good luck on your next attempt :D

Yes, I'm sorry if my PEBKAC first-thoughts sounded condescending to you and Dirk and any other silver-surfers out here! :oops: :P It was only a first thought and I only meant to tease! :oops: I hope Tracy can help Dirk through this HTML headache? :wink:

Re: PICNIC - :lol:
Better not comment further apart from 8)

Re: copy & paste:
Yup! - deffo agree with this :lol: - writing in Word or even notepad/wordpad would do, and save it, then copy and paste into the submission box (ooh er missus! :P :roll: :oops: )

Copy&Paste should be rule number one of blogging. :P

I've been on livejournal for 6 years (holy cow did not realize that 0.o) and before that Diaryland for a year (which is terrible btw) and the only way around the Blog Eating Gremlins that show up from time to time is to Copy and Paste.

Don't know about the one you are using, but with LJ, it usually just means the server hiccuped, which is reasonable if you think about all the people on it 0.o

I don't follow my own advice though. I next to never copy and paste, and I used to loose posts all the time. Not so much now that LJ has a semi-auto save function though, which will restore your text if it saved.

You know though, sometimes I'm thankful to the Blog Eating Gremlins because occassionally what I first think I should post is really *not* what I should post, so they have kept me outta trouble before :P

bibbi
12-13-2007, 12:45 PM
I 100% agree with the copy & paste rule.
I also keep backups of all of my files on disk. Always.
You never know what's going to happen to your computer. It happens even when your computer is in good condition! :shock: .....those pesky computer Gremlins!.... :lol:
I can tell honestly tell you...backing things up has saved me major headaches and also my customers. :D
Computers are not infallible. :wink:
Looking forward to seeing the blog. Good Luck! :D
may the computer not hiccup! :wink:

Well I hope Dirk is not very upset about it, just next time copy and paste. Besides to comfort him Dwight has way more horrid stories to tell about his computer...Did you know for instance that the harddrive of his laptop crashed....several times...that he has installed many different virusscanners on it (I hope not at the same time) and that he got several bills for a few of those but he never asked to buy those virusscanners, but they billed him anyway.

Just keep working on that blog Dirk, I'm sure you will be able to post soon without glitches....I hope Dwight will make a podcast soon but it's kind of icy in Oklahoma at the moment...so no livestream.

added later: livestream is back again!

But this is really nice, a good stimulation for me to keep working on my assestments for getting my degree.... and then sit back and relax and read Dirk his interesting words.

"POOF" almost sounds like Disney, something bad happend, but something better will return!

Hi, Hope Dirk will have time to write to us all soon. I know what I dreadfull thing it is to click "enter" and then you're intire theatrical play is gone (It happened to me! :evil: Well at least the latest version in a totally new style and all..... 30 pages! And no copy saved of course) But with me there was some luck to it. The whole new style, angle turned out to be not so new after all. Now I have found a new angle for it and some new research material. So I guess the disappearing act performed by my work had an underlying intention. It was not "the right stuff" for that moment. Mayby with Dirks first BLOG-writing it is the same? Maybe he will find a new better angle/ theme. stuff to tell us? I am curious.... but will wait patiently. :wink:

Dirk will be blogging. It probably won't be a daily or weekly event, but when he wants to share, he'll make a post. He's been sidetracked by life in general. As we all do from time to time. With the holidays, the site changing ( with more work to do etc. ) delays happen.

And in the mean time...we ALL patiently await Dirks first blog entry ! *SIGH*

And let's stay patience okay?

The Guy has more things to do then to write a blog! :)

I am sure he has all kinds of ideas in his head to write. Don't forget: He already attempted once. But I guess it was not good enough or time was not ready, since his PC hobbits decided to crash the blog...:mad:

So instead of writing here that "we will be patient" (which to me still sounds like a; Hurry up, you fool (:rolleyes: where is the B.A. Baracus smiley when you need it...:p) let's just wait it out.

Remember: a lot of things smell/ taste/ sound/ are even better when you had to wait for them a little while (or a bit longer:D)

No offence please. I just don't like to be rushed and I guess Dirk will be with me on that.;)

And we don't want Tracy to get crazy >:) :cry::confused: posting replies saying Yes the blog is comming.

Zilfstar I 100% agree! :)
I think you meant stay patient not patience. ;)

Oh MY!!! :)):D:)):D:)):oops::oops:

Well in Dutch a patient is some one who is sick. Patience is a computer game I think:confused:.

Slip of the fingers I guess. I know a lot of words and how they are written. But sometimes there is a tricky one! So I humbly apologise for any type-o's I believe they are called...:p

The funny thing is: most times it's the easy ones that go wrong. The complicated ones
(:psee I knew that one!) I remember well. It is a bit like Dirk writes about the "danger" being there where you do not expect it to be (OK, this is not actually dangerous>:), although I am very sensitive about making mistakes and feel very easily ashamed:oops:). You know: the danger lies in the unloaded gun... I LOVE that remark! And it is absolutely true. In small things as well as in the big ones.

BTW and totally off topic: I have seen an A-team episode today I did not remember and I know a lot of them! This one was about Face wanting to become member of some Club. Hilarious scenes with golfcars racing over the green, golfballs, guns and fake money. I enjoyed myself very much! Well see you all later!:cool:

Ha ha ha Zilfstar!! Normal...We've many maternal languages here and every one have his meanings..:))
In my maternal language, catalan, patient is "pacient" and patience is "pacičncia". It's different too. In spanish they're "paciente" and "paciencia" too. It's similar in this case.
I like the different languages in here and I think this is a cultural wealth for all, really? ;)
Take care.

I was just wondering on how Dirk was doing and when he might be writing in his blog.
*I'm just naturally curious.* ;)

I'm starting to be a bit concerned that Dirk is taking this 'blogging' thing a bit too seriously? :o :oops: And he doesn't want to 'write' something that's not 'top quality'? :confused:

Tracy, please tell him he should relax about it? :oops:

Perhaps he should just write some ones a few times for himself (and his kids?) to read and then see how that goes, ie if he's comfortable with that, then he can 'post' later ones after he's got into the swing? :confused:

Gosh - he shouldn't be writing essays! :o ? I thought a blog was just some 100 - 200 words? :confused:

Oh dear! Hope I don't sound 'authoritarian'! :oops::(

xx to all

Zilfstar

And maybe he is just too busy with more important things????

Of course to US it is important, but as a mother myself with a home occupation (I am working at home) and several sports and other interests of myself and my kids and husband AND the housekeeping, bringing and taking kids to school and playground, I do not have time to keep up a diary or blog or what ever. I can imagine Dirk is equally busy (if not more with all his duties as a VIP, TV-star, writer etc AND all the Macrobiotic cooking (that takes time if done properly)) so even writing 100 words as a blog item takes time. And do not forget: He will be carefull with his choice of words because he IS a famous person.

I totally agree. Although the waiting is tough on all of us as loyal and curious fans, he will undoubtedly have been too busy to start writing the blog. (Perhaps he has been working in his next book?!)

Or perhaps it slipped his mind. He's only human like the rest of us.

Hi all. Sounds like an awesome idea. Can't wait. I'm in Oz and along way from the USA, so it will be great to feel just that little bit closer to everything going on over there.

i agree with you there! Someone like him, as ocupied as his life must be, to have time to ALWAYS come to the blog must. Hell, i sometimes even forget to feed my goldfish, raisng two kids( three, if count the husband...!). spending nine hours aways away from home working hard as hell, coming home and doing housekeeping myself, 'cause my hubbie is afraid is dick will fall off if he helps on anything!!! Life's complicated, and tiring, and busy, and, and ,and... So, i guess it's normal that Dirk doesn't always have the time to even turn on his PC or Lap top much more write on the blog!

I doubt he's forgotten anything, with Tracy to remind him.

Rather, he IS busy. In case everyone forgot, he does have a son that is around the age to be graduating from school?

By the way... He has already post a small blog. So let the man be! Maybe we have all the time in the world to visit DB Central every day (twice or more;)) and even have time to put together a blog in 15 minutes...

I guess Dirk is the kind of man who wants his blog, writings etc of some importance..:D Actually have something to say other then just: yeah hello I am here, I have drunk my miso and am preparing brown rice right now :p.

So he takes his times AND is a very busy father. He will not forget, I am sure, but there has to be time, oppertunity and spirit to sit at the PC and write a good original blog he is happy and content with to put up here for us (and all the world including his critics) to read.

I had fun writing my first blog today. Post yours and maybe that way he will get inspired and encouraged...:)

LOL - Spot on Zilfstar! :)) :cool:
I agree that a 'I have drunk my miso ... ' blog wouldn't be too interesting to me :o :oops: but if it rocks his boat, then go for it! :D
Not sure if I'd blog here :confused: - I'm pretty sure that wouldn't inspire or encourage anyone else to blog! :)) :p

Being new to this site, I just wanted to add my two cents worth:

I think it would be a shame not to be able to read Mr. Benedict's ideas and, dare I say, rants that he so eloquently and honestly puts forth in the written word. If not to enlighten us to his thoughts and beliefs as well as the principles of a macrobiotic lifestyle, at least it would serve as a form of escapism for those of us yearning to be free of the day-to-day grind, living vicariously thru his wonderful musings and stories to attempt to leave behind our own routine and humdrum lives which, alas, most of us cannot afford to flee from.

Oh, to live simply and naturally in the wilds of Montana or Alaska or anywhere other than the large metropolitan cities, sucked into our daily lives void of true fulfillment!

Having enjoyed his two books, as well as the introduction to the writings of Michio Kushi, I would find it terribly sad not to be able to continue in this journey of discovery and health, even if it was only via an occasional blog by someone whom I consider to be humorous, enlightened and, above all, too honest for our own good.

Mr. Benedict, please consider continuing the blog…

I'm new to the DBC forums. I was just wondering - whatever happened to that Blog? Did Dirk post anything and if so, where can I find his blog/posts?

Zilfstar
11-18-2011, 03:30 AM
For all I know Dirk has only posted one, even then doubting if he will ever write another one. Dirk isn't a multimedia-man... He did not even own a television (don't know about now...)

So I don't think he will ever write that blog. Pitty because I think he has a lot of interesting things to say and ponder about.
