One of the things about the net that I love and hate is the development of freedom of expression. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a socialist at heart, and I love the fact that people can say what they want, how the want, in the USA. Well, mostly. Illegality being what it is. But I […]
So I slapped up WordPress 2.7 here just to see what it was like and to see how much work was going to be needed to integrate it with my other sites when the time comes. Wow. There’s a minor hitch when it comes to finding everything I want, but the left-side menu with drop […]
I’ve been fiddling with bbPress as a forum tool and I now has my first plugin! Spoiler Bar makes the text and background of your spoiler tagged text the same, so people have to highlight it to see it. Yeah, it’s totally basic stuff that every forum has. And now bbPress has it too!

I love Macintosh, but I wouldn’t call myself a smug Macvangelist. If you like Windows, fine. If you like Ubuntu, also fine. I like Macintosh, it does what I need. I also like Nix servers (Apache is the finest webserver) and I’m fairly cognizant of how they work. At one point in my life, I […]
I decided to make the blog look like the main site. That is all.
My bus broke down on Lake Shore Drive today. This happens once in a blue moon. Normally I have train breakdowns or my train hits people (seriously – three people in ten years, I’m cursed!). Today though, the bus just dies in the middle of the Drive. We manage to pull to the side, and […]
Dear crackhead who tried to hack into my network to print something. I work in IT, I’m a rockstar, I’m a code monkey. My printer is a $2000 dollar POS I picked up for $100. It’s not a shitty laser printer, but a nice, happy toner cartridge beheamoth that can print a couple hundred pages […]
