Technology does not impress the cat.
Archive for the ‘Technology Pokery’ Category
On my day off Friday, our IT guys were hard at work setting up my new computer. I had forgotten that so when I came back on Monday I was greeted with the awesome shininess that is my new computing duds. WHEEEE!
Hello technology daemons everywhere! I’d like to welcome you all to the booniverse because you’re here already and to not acknowledge you would be rude. Yes, booniverse readers, once again the blog is plagued by small fretting technology daemons so things might be a tad slower than usual. On the plus side, I’m upgraded to WordPress.the-most-recent so all you haXX0rz can bite me. On the minus side I seem to have lost some abilities in the back end of things like categories and the ability to post-date. It’s probably here somewhere or has to be turned on or summoned or something but darned if I know. Thus, I’ll once again be writing posts but not releasing them into the wild until I can figure out where my post-dating button has gotten off to. I have a LOT of Art Fair pics to share.
Maybe I ought to see if the upload function is also AWOL because that would be very bad indeed.
See you on the flip side of technology daemon extermination/exorcisation.
 AhHA! I found post datery and the upload pic function. Looking over the couple entries I just put up though makes me see that I haven’t quite gotten the pic function to work exactly right. Back to shaking the daemons, stay tuned for more Art Fair picto-posting!
Hello Booniverse readers! We’re once again taking sharp sticks to the technology daemons to see what comes out of it. Hopefully we’ll be back with a new shiny more year of the rat-tastical booniverse, but if the daemons object to the poking we might be down a tad longer than we expect. The daemons didn’t respond too well last time we gave ‘em a poke, but this time we’ve got new sticks. Huzzah! Also, wish us luck.
2-14-08 EDIT: OK, the archives and I are having a bit of a go around but (ir)regular posting should be back up tomorrow…assuming the technology daemons have gotten all the fun out of their system. It’s been an interesting week of technology failure here at the Q house.
HA! I’ve been waiting for the November stats to roll around because November has perhaps one of the coolest ditties to gank and rework for my blog stating theme. Yay Guy Fawks!
Did you know that they made such a thing as Monty Pythons Holy
Grail? I did not until TheMan came home with some. Huh. It’s pretty good too, but not as good as some October blog-stats! Or something. Anyway, here they are.
I am glad that September has at least one ditty that I can blog-stat mangle because finding a good August quote was a pain in my hinder. Also Cyber-stalker Patty? This pic is for you.
It’s cold and wet and nasty outside like a typical November morning might be except it’s currently October. Tuesday it was in the high 90s like your typical late June day might be except again, it’s October. I wouldn’t mind so much if it were a late warm fall or an early cold fall but I really wish the weather would make up its mind. I’m not so keen on having both within a 48 hour time span.
So! To think back on nicer days, I’ve decided to dink around with the June blog stats. Well, not really but it seemed like a good segue and I thought maybe the weather might be intrigued by the thought of June blog stats and settle down one way or the other. I’m hoping for more June-ish then November-ish but if my June stats make the weather feel all emo and it decides to stay Novemberish, well then at least we’ll have consistency. Dreary, cold, depressing, consistency but consistency none the less. Basically, I’m really not fond of this extreme temperature yo-yoing so let’s think of something else…like blog stats!
Hey there, you observant booniverse readers might have noticed that the April “Last year at the booniverse” links now all point to the new host. Or at least should. That was today’s project because I thought it was time to do another bit of blog clean up. I think I’m trying to assuage my lack of gardening guilt. Anyway, I had wanted to see what my dinking around with repointing the archives did to the blog stats but apparently, they aren’t up and running to TheMan’s satisfaction. Alas. Perhaps I will update May when he’s had a chance to wrestle with the statting program and give it what for. Until then, here’s the scoop on April.
I’ve just finished going through the March archives and repointing all the “last years” to the new host. Let me tell you, that messes with the server stats something fierce. TheMan was all “Hey! More than half the hits are for the booniverse!” until I asked him where people were looking. Hmmm. March. You know, almost as if someone were dinking about the March archives…oh say…clicking on them all in order to update the link history at the bottom of the page.
Still, for that tiny moment before I realized that I was the mad site clicker, I thought I was the shiznit!
Hrrrm. If this were TheMan’s blog I’d file this under “technical” but this isn’t so I can’t because I don’t. Have a technical category. I could, however, make a blog blither-blather category I suppose for little update news items and such.
Nah, that sounds like work. Anyway, a couple new things happening around the blog these days.
