Usually I want to try and wait until I have something worthy to put here before I post. But the adoring fans pleaded for a post anyway so here it goes. (well, to be honest I hadn’t realized how long it has been since my last post. Really though, nothing much has happened).

IM names are not the place for propoganda. When I look in my Adium/MSN/Chat list, I expect to see a list of people I know. I’ll even allow nicknames. But it is NOT ok to put a whole freakin’ run-on sentence in that little window, to share an insight or message to the world. That’s what blogs are for. That’s why I have one (among other reasons). Go here and make one & tell the world how much you like this or hate that – because honestly, yes you’re my friend & I care if you’re having a particularly crappy or wonderful day, but in my IM list I DON’T GIVE A SHIT!!

And since it’s been sooooooo long (insert rolling eyes here), I present 2 of my favourite funny cat pictures of the last while:

Why do you have to be so prevalent?  I just went to Mark’s Work Wearhouse & had to search through …. 10 stacks of pants (probably all together about 6 or 7 feet) before I found 1 – 1! – pair that was my size.  If there weren’t so many of you people tipping the curve, people like me would find it much easier to be stylin’. 


In completely unrelated news – see if you can find a copy of the November issue of Time.  It looks like it has a funny picture of the Iranian president.  I haven’t been able to find a good copy to put up here & I’ve only seen a small copy, so I may be on crack – but look it up if you get the chance.

Well I just finished a 12 hour day which included a nice 8 hour marathon programming session. Quite truthfully I’m surprised my brain is still functioning well enough for me to be writing this.

<nerd>

It wouldn’t have been that big of a deal except at about 5:00 I discovered the Rich Text Editor I chose tinyMCE, while having a server-side file manager, decides to charge $100 bucks a pop for it. Needless to say I don’t have the budget for that. So I spent a few hours trying to hack apart Javascript to allow me to get a custom file manager to work. After a series of small miracles, I got ‘er done.

</nerd>

Now if you’ll kindly excuse me, I’m going to go pass out now.

Well, it took me a couple days, but I finally managed to get this WordPress thing done.  I must say it is a relief to have a really nice & powerful administration backend.  But damn does the template engine suck ass.  Rather than being able to assign stuff like a post title, or the categories to variables, I’m supposed to insert <?php … ?> tags inside the template – what kind of crap is that?  Methinks I’ll be editing a backup copy behind the scenes so I can get the template engine modified to Template Lite - cuz the default one is crap on a dowel.

And since I’m not a 100% complete nerd & I do realize some people come here for comedy and/or belittlement, here are a couple highlights from one of my favourite sites: icanhascheezburger.com.
