Saving draft blog posts on Realneo for publishing later

 A user recently asked how to save drafts on the realneo server.   I found this question was answered by Jeff Schuler in 2008 here on Realneo.

WIND TOWER GONE - AN UPDATE

Submitted by Jeff Buster@rea... on Mon, 01/30/2006 - 00:52.

When I drove by the back of the Science Center on January 24th, the three steel turbine tower sections were gone.  Just the brown lawn - dead where the tower had been stored.

 

I assume the tower had been craned onto a low bed and taken to a welding shop where it would be set up in a straight line on a series of   rollers and welded back together AND radiographed.

A - Z MATTRESSES

 Two years ago our gas clothes drier lost the bearings in several of its plastic drum support rollers - we needed another drier!  We could go out to the malls or in to Cleveland. 

 

LET'S CREDIT ARTISTS

Submitted by Jeff Buster@rea... on Wed, 01/18/2006 - 00:48.

 

The Detroit Superior Veterans Bridge in Cleveland has had a facelift recently with the addition of  “public art” objects – including this complicated heliotropic photovoltaic powered “sunflower” by Don Harvey - but the artists don’t have their names anywhere in sight  along the sidewalk across the bridge.  That’s an oversight which needs correcting.

OPPORTUNITY FREEWAY FOR WHOM?

Submitted by Jeff Buster@rea... on Tue, 01/17/2006 - 22:28.

 

 "Opportunity Corridor" has the same level of candor as the phrase "destroy to protect" did during the Vietnam War.  "Opportunity Corridor" is the latest hypocritical corporate spin on the resuscitation of the extension of the Clark Freeway – put to bed at E55th in the 60’s.  The BIG question is:  for whom  will the proposed new highway be an “opportunity”?   The Cleveland Clinic and the University Circle Inc. constituents? or the people who have held their own for years along the proposed route and who stand threatened with eminent domain and removal?

WIND TURBINE GETTING CLOSER

After about a bit more than a century Cleveland will soon have its second (*see the first here: http://www.windpower.org/en/pictures/brush.htm ) substantial wind powered electrical generator.

I'VE REALLY SMELLED IT FOR A YEAR TOO

Submitted by Jeff Buster@rea... on Sun, 01/15/2006 - 00:40.

 

When I have been on the rim of the Cuyahoga Valley at E30th and Broadway (between the prison and the post office) for the last year with the prevailing SW winds there is a usually a strong sickly obnoxious sweet smell - not the steel mills smell but rather the same smell described by James Renner in the Free Times article here:

REAL GLEANING IN NEO - SOCIETY DISMANTLING ITSELF

Submitted by Jeff Buster@rea... on Wed, 01/11/2006 - 16:44.

ALUMINUM SIDING REMOVAL

Picking away at the carcass – an aerial feat off Woodland @ Broadway.  But all around NEO you’ll see this taking place.  First the low hanging fruit is plucked – off the  houses and garages.  The highest fruit is left ‘til last. Still a little green aluminum left for the next picker here.

What makes a good local website?

Submitted by Jeff Buster@rea... on Mon, 01/09/2006 - 22:57.

Here I am in NORTH EAST OHIO, concerned about the civic situation, but, as is true for all of us, with a limited amount of time and energy.   When the muse strikes me, and I am ready to post to the web, what is the most efficacious web site on which to post?  Fresh brewed daily?,  Hotel Bruce? Cppl Cleveland?

 

Is it healthy to be asking these questions? or is it sacrilegious to be asking?
