Miscellany

If you are in for some absurdity be sure to see Colonel Sander’s typing pool over at Pandangon. Apparently they didn’t like their medals.

I borrowed some Javascript from Michael to avoid opening a book and “reinventing the wheel” to produce a countdown calendar for the Shrubbery and to track how long Osama has been wandering about since the “Wanted: Dead or Alive” poster was announced.

One of my diversions on the roll The Daily Kitten was down for over a week as the result of what amounted to a denial of service [DOS] attack every day when the ailurophiles hit the site at the posting of the day’s kitten. The problem has been resolved with a new server, but that kind of spike can make a system administrator’s life a nightmare.

Maru is on vacation and out of contact with the ‘Net for a week.

Rook has hit a burn out and is on hiatus. I hope the time out helps him recharge and return to the battle in time for the elections. We need every voice available to balance the misinformation campaign.

I’ve added two diversions to the roll:

Crap I Drew on My Lunch Break is a comic strip that updates on Tuesday and Thursday. It is an acquired taste.

Mythstory is written by Chris Regan, who has been working on a cable television show, The Daily Show, but I won’t hold that against him.

JavaScript’s date/time functions are messy enough that even as an alleged JavaScript expert (my clients think that; I most certainly don’t) I keep a book open when I have to code them. Borrowing code is most definitely fair game here.

I was born at 3:07 PM, but that was CST, and no one posted my pic on a web site. Then again, I wasn’t as cute as those kittens…

Oh, OT, I forgot… Bryan, have you run across this? How would you like it if Rummy called you back into service, possibly as a means of shutting you up? Be sure to read the comment thread.

The real benefit of using existing code to ensure that you are going to crash the site with a typo from the manual.

One of my fellow instructors back in my teaching days had a hell of a time with a book because the editor kept “correcting punctuation” in his examples.

Thanks for the Kitten link. I hadn’t seen that one, that’s a daily read if I ever saw one!

I have not been in a catblogging mood lately. Feak is still only under the lamp, or in the window, lol. Only so many lamp and/or window pictures you can see, you know?!

I don’t know, sounds like a good reason to buy a new lamp to see if Feak would like a change.
