I just wanted to share my artwork.
I know you were all waiting very impatiently for this to be fixed. Right?
Anyway, the like button works again.
I went and upgraded this blog site from BlogEngine.net 1.6 to 2.0. While I was at it, I enabled reCaptcha - I was getting a lot of comment spam.
If you see any problems (can't post a comment, see something looking strange or out of place) let me know. Either in a comment, or if its coz comments are bung, email me (anyone who reads this will like know my email address. If not, it's email@example.com :)
One day, eventually, I'll get Gaptcha working...but to be honest, my give a crap level is pretty low. I'd really like it, but I don't want to learn how. As time goes on ASP.net has less and less interest for me. Oh well :)
Update: It seems Facebook integration is a little broken. Whenever I click the 'Like' button on any post it looks like it works, but a second later reverts and says there was an error. Does this happen to anyone else?
This isn't a normal post from me. Normally I just open my mouth and let whatever come out have it's day in the spotlight. This post is, well, actually kinda the same, but with a different target. When I write here I'm generally targetting an audience of noone and everyone all at the same time. This time I'm writing in one specific direction.
I've been following Kat Howard on twitter for a little while now having stumbled across her as a result of various nefarious eavesdropping attempts (in other words, found via Joe Hill and Jason Ciaramella). She's been pondering about what what medium is scariest - books, movies, comics, etc. If you want to follow what I'm writing here, go read that first.
Almost exactly four years ago I took ownership of something shiny and new.
I've had a sneaking suspicion for a while that I'm not alone in my body.
No, no, no. I'm not talking about the usual ways that this might occur.
First up, let me say that this is nothing to do with my own blog - yet. When I first setup this blog using BlogEngine.net, it came with built-in avatar support, but I removed it because I didn't understand it. I might put it back eventually, but that's only after I find the time...one day.
I was reading Nick Wright's (of Treading Ground) LiveJournal and he had a post about listing what music you were listening to at each 5 year increment of your life. I thought I'd give it a shot.
I was sitting at work yesterday when I decided to go outside for a break. No big deal usually, it happens a few times throughout the work day. Normally, before I leave my desk, it entails three things:
- Put my phone in my pocket.
- Put my smokes in my pocket.
- Put my sunglasses on my head.
This is all well and good, but this time I couldn't find my sunglasses.
Generally I'm a creature of habit - and I need my routines or everything goes to shit. Seriously. I've noticed that if something messes up my 'get ready for work in the mornings' process, then strange things go wrong. Can't find my keys coz I put them in a different spot than normal the night before? I forget to put on my deodorant. Can't find my shoes? Go to work with no pants on. Yeah, that sort of gone to shit.
Trapped, BrowBeaten, and HenPecked - those words are exactly not the way I'm feeling :)
Back from the awesomeness that was an extremely stinkingly hot United States, finally almost over all the jetlag, the fun that is Geoff is back. Back and, dare I say it - happy?
Yes, I dare to say it.
I'm a married man now, trapped for life, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
