I haven’t written much of substance here. I feel a little bad about it, but then I have stupid fears about revealing myself, my beliefs, thoughts, feelings… of being exposed to the slings and arrows, as it were. Intellectually I know that these fears should not be allowed to interfere with what I choose to do or say; some people will think me arrogant for stating my truths, but there really is nothing else worth doing, in the end. It becomes easy for me, sometimes, to be discouraged or to doubt myself, not in whether my truths are true, but perhaps in whether they are worth telling the world or whether anyone will care or benefit.
I’ve added a few plugins to the site. I always wanted to have a random quote type of plugin, so I found one and set it up to my liking. In the process I found several others I took a shine to as well, and they also have been added. Now to find some quotes I want on there…
It seems to be working now. I updated WordPress to version 2.2, thus blasting the theme I set up (by editing the default theme). So I just went out and got a different theme and modified it a bit. Much easier than trying to turn the default one into a fluid-width theme. And it looks better, too.
Apparently the bug is only fixed for me, when I’m logged into the site. <sigh>
I’m starting to get really annoyed with this stupid bug that sporadically pops up on this site. I don’t can’t figure out if it’s a problem with something like the version of the database it’s using, or WordPress itself (which I doubt since I haven’t seen any reports of anyone else having the problem), or PHP or what. But it’s stupid and I want it to stop.
Apparently arcades are dangerous… and not because there might be dangerous people hanging around.
Saw Stardust (the movie) on Friday and it was awesome. Go see it.
Still making progress on Stardust (my board game project). Much left to do, but I’m enjoying it.
Well, I haven’t written much here lately. I guess I kind of wonder sometimes what to write about, even though I have things on my mind. There is a fear of having ideas stolen if I reveal too much here, and so, about things I’m creating, I say little or nothing. Mundane things often seem too mundane to write… etc.
Well, the USB keyboard works… but not on the USB port. Apparently the PS/2 port is ok, though the USB ports on this thing are tricky–some things work on them and some things don’t.
Particularly funny, or at least I assume it would be from some point of view, not neccessarily mine, is the way it changes things. Like, for instance, my home computer’s PS/2 keyboard port failing. At least I’m pretty sure that is the problem. It’s another sign of age for what is the electronic equivalent of a 117-year-old geezer, slowly tottering and wheezing along towards an end which promises a sublime digital respite.
