The Splice Night festivities reflected the wonderful reality: 2012 was a better year for me than 2011.
And 2013, Year of the Snake, with that ever-powerful '3' digit, bodes as nothing but everything wonderful!
TWEETS are STILL flowing onto LJ via SOME OTHER site. I thought I fixed this. I'm about a hairsbreadth from killing my Twitter shitter for good. Except it has some history on it, some of which is mildly funny, at least to me, so I just have to find out how to MAKE IT KEEP TO ITSELF.
FUCK WEB 2.0
I rather DISLIKE the way my LJ looks when Twitter birdshits its little crappy posts onto it, completely out of context, cut-off and mis-embedded, aargh.
Twitter stays on Twitter. It does not need to be XMLed to every other bit of bloggistry I am authoring just because someone figured out how to make things do that and now every site is tied to every other one.
Result: MASSIVE AMOUNTS of REDUNDANCY.
Yet another thing to hate about Web 2.0 or whatever it's called this week, month, year.
And while on the subject of tech-trendoidism, WTF does the term 'agile' mean in the context of coding web applications?
(I THINK it refers to web-apps, or slab-apps, in particular, but being no expert and having no expert nearby to ask, I'm winging it, and used to it by now. But the ubiquity of this 'agile' thing is vexing my head for no good reason, since I dun' do programming anyway.)
I crammed all the photos on my HD onto Picasa so I'll not have to worry about losing them again. And when I hit the slideshow-maker I thought it would just make a slideshow of the Urrow folder, but it made one of everything I uploaded.
Got a little pang-ish looking at those pics of D. and me...but it dinna hang around and make me get my keyboard wet or anything.
I shoulda been working on something else, tonight, but I had to deal with the diskspace issue, and this seemed like a good idea. Another thing I did was combine the folders I had two or even three copies of containing my old websites and textfiles. Major pain in the ass but now I have space to work on stuff that takes huge scratchdisks.
