It’s perl, you jackass.
To start, I fixed some stuff on the site that was bothering me. The Asides are spaced out a bit, and there are fewer of them - those columns are far too narrow for that many posts. I also stopped comments flagged as spam from appearing on the Recent Comments sidebar, and if you noticed that the permalinks to posts on those comments didn’t work, you noticed it too late, because it’s fixed now.Â Finally, I fixed the photos not appearing. In a stellar example of why I prefer not to use other people’s services or software, flickr blocked the API key that FAlbum was using, due to overuse. Which, considering how many people like me were using the key through that plugin, is hardly a shock.
It might be my own fault for not changing it, but I really do not recall seeing anything about changing that in the docs or comments. Whatever, I applied for a new API key, and it works now, and should stay working forever.
In other news, I screwed up on my taxes and owed quite a bit of money to the government. It’s not that I did the math wrong or anything, but I took too many exemptions, and have been drastically underpaying all year. Whoops!
It just so happens that I realized this, as is typical for me, on April 15th. Which not only gave me no time to prepare for it, it was also the same day that I had to take my car in for service. Which also cost quite a bit. I ended up driving a Ford Taurus until yesterday, which had two things going for it: decently quick, and gave me the opportunity to come up with stupid acronyms for it.
Flimsy Overnight Rental Due To - Again, Unexpectedly - Ride Undergoing Service
Other than that, totally didn’t like the car. Weak brakes, terribly mileage, soft and floaty ride, cheap interior (column shift?!?!), and it barely fit in the garage. I’m really not a Ford fan.
This is the sort of E/N crap I told myself I wouldn’t bother posting, but I’m trying to force myself to update, even if E/N is all I’ve got to post. Expect real content later this week, including poorly written reviews of the new Nine Inch Nails and VNV Nation albums.
