Computers are incredibly fast, accurate and stupid. - Albert Einstein

In recent news, a computer crisis has cropped up in the Bergmann household. The tale has been told since the beginning of time: one little problem ending up into a reconstruction not to be equalled by the Civil War's. It started out, that little problem, as all computer problems do: an unexplainable error message coupled with a mysterious human instigator. Preliminary results point to Bailey Bergmann, an innocent-looking fifteen-year-old with a record of starting computer problems, as the culprit. Bergmann did not answer TTT's inquiries by phone.

The problem, explained senior computer wrangler (SCW) T. Bergmann, started with an error message on a movie editing program. After uninstalling the program, he tried to reinstall it, with no luck. Forced to comply with his daughter's whims and work, he upgraded to an expensive new program, which installed fine. All would have gone well had not the younger Bergmann pulled hair over a menu template, compelling the SCW to try to install the bonus pack containing extra razzle dazzle. It refused to install. Repeated interaction with the program's company yielded more error messages. The program released this statement: "We appreciate your patience."

Left out in the cold is the computer itself, which nearly had its hard drive wiped out. It left early Monday morning for rehab. More news on that as tests come in.

In the meantime, the rest of the computer's users have been transferred to a younger computer, resulting in confusion and delay, riots and pouting. Email is down for Bergmann's siblings; the SCW's wife complains of losing the links to her favorite websites; and all movie editing has been postponed indefinitely. - reporting by TTT staff

I sincerely believe blogging can save America. - John Jay Hooker

In an unprecedented turn of events, the Wisconsin Blog Council (WBC) has reported more blogs in the area than ever before. "It's word of mouth, mostly," says WBC president Cy Ber. "One girl starts, another girl follows - it's amazing, really, what social girls can do to the blogging world. They're definitely making an impact."

Recent blogs include Kara's Creative Corner, cornered on the web a few weeks ago. Says blog owner Kara, "When Bailey, Anna, and Bethany got a quaint little blog, I decided I would try my luck. After struggling with the new templated blogger (grrr) I finally figured out the background, the heading, and much more. So, at least I'm here!"

Spurred by the encouragement and talent of Joyfull Girl Creations mastermind, Sarah opened her web log, Breezes Through the Meadow, Sunday afternoon. "This is my first time being a blogger, and I am bubbling over with excitement and joy!" Sarah says in her introductory post.

WBC reports possibilit of at least three more girls capitalizing on the blog rage.

Following the trend of young and exuberant bloggers, The White Raft started up with the intent of providing a network of bloggers under the age of 18. The home page states, "We are in the early stages of creating a place for young people to come and explore pre-screened blogs written by young people under the age of 18." It is currently looking for young bloggers to join in and submit their blogs into the directory. Submit your blogs on the home page. - with reporting from WBC student staff
