I upgraded to WordPress 3.5 and some plugins last night. The automatic install went smoothly as always, but dammit! something went wrong. Problems: “Add New Post” won’t switch from Text to Visual Quicktags toolbar was blank or missing “Add Media” popped up a red box alerting me that the WP 3.5 media uploader was New […]

WordPress 2.3.1 Upgrade

yeah Just upgraded to WordPress 2.3.1. The release, not the release candidate. I wound up have to go into phpMyAdmin and set the auto_increment value in some of the MySQL tables. Now that I’ve sorted it out, I have to say that so far I like it. Sidebar widgets and tags are built right in. […]

Snakes on a Plane [2006] [R] – 8.9.6 I was poking around in the access log trying to figure out why recycled canvas isn’t talking to its server and found the following entry: 80.4.10.129 – – [23/Aug/2007:05:32:37 -0700] “GET /~void/category/snakes-on-a-plane/ HTTP/1.1” 200 15854 “http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=snakes+on+a+plane+sex+bit&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&safe=active” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6” It […]

Drawing Flowers in Excel

Ok, so they’re not flowers, they’re lemniscates. If you are using IE 5.01 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later and the Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components, you can play with this interactively by clicking on the flower. IE may give you a security warning. Apparently IE doesn’t trust Excel. The equation is ampl + PM […]

Netflix WatchNow, but use IE

The Big Time

Well, I finally made it to the big time. Well, no, what I really mean is that the spambots found “Into The Void” this week and they are hammering my WordPress blog with comment spam. I’ve received 500-some requests in the last 48 hours. Would anyone in their right mind patronize a company that has […]

Review of the Siemens SX66

Santa wasn’t very good to me this year. I suspect that he heard me accidentally call him Satan the week before Christmas. Or maybe he figured out that I’m a techno-Pagan. I bought myself a toy instead. It’s better that way… I got exactly what I wanted and I didn’t have to be a good […]
