The boring rants of a lazy nerd

Probably my favorite LMB quote:
"I am not schizoid," Miles bit off. "A little manic-depressive, maybe," he admitted in afterthought. Galeni�s lips twitched. "Know thyself." "We try, sir."
(Lois McMaster Bujold, Brothers in Arms) Teri: I did not get any presets. Did you "Save" (lower!save) each preset before sending it? Use the little debug!astrisk (next to the preset choosing drop down menu) to see what is currently saved in your cookie. This is what will get submitted. Please try again, and let's work this thing out. Did you see the correct info on the free-cgi site when submitting?

This thought belongs to the Real Blog, but it's something I thought I should share, even if no one can read it. Go figure.
— "haose shalom bimromav, hu ya'ase shalom aleynu ve'al kol israel, rak imru, imru amen" — "Berezhonovo, B-g berezhot"
Atheist, agnostic? Practical pessimist? Too inexperienced to decide? Rhetorical questions. This should be a haiku.

Running this:

sub p{
my $l=$_[0];
my @a=();

with "Laetitia Casta" as a command line parameter explains a great deal. ;)
BTW, I just love the way you can obfuscate perl code into complete and utter unreadability with such ease. Saves bandwidth too. Perfect scripting language.

Did my security check (poor translation) today. Was much nicer than I have imagined. Seems like they really do care only about drugs. I guess stoned troops are not fit for combat, but really, drugs, moi? Hope the tests on the 24th are as easy. Too bad the weather sux (I'm soaking wet!) but on the bright side: I think I can get my bus money back (I want uniform! Public transport is free if you're in uniform! (Well, for 60$ a month, you're supposed to get at least something! And hitchhiking is very dangerous, as you know))

On the topic of hosting experiment failure: It's the server side compulsive banner code add-on to all .html files that made the archives JavaScript code crash. You see I use the <BlogArchiveFileName> file as a .js file, meaning no html code allowed, but if I make Blogger use the .js file extension on it the archive files will have it too. Blogger won't allow me to separate naming conventions for content and service modules. Stupid bloody Blogger. I've still separated out as much code as possible to be hosted externally to the main blog file, because of caching and redundancy issues, so it wasn't all a loss. We're learning. The color preset thing: in "Current->Theme" you can pick a ready template, adjust each of the 15 different colors it contains using the "apply", "save" and "discard" buttons and then save your temporary template into a cookie to be your default template for the site, and submit it to me through email (no typing needed) so I'll add it (like I've added Lynn's). The RGB <-> Hex calculator and demo window should help you with the color choosing tasks.

Edit: In this post I am madly in love with Lori, author of the fic PoU and its sequels. In retrospect, very sad.
