Facial hair in the news

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Some exciting news for those of us who love facial hair:
AUSSIE women find facial hair attractive and more men have sex and are “wilder in the bedroom”.

Even fish are in on it.

Technology as explained by my mother: Links

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

I was fielding technology questions from a family friend who had a hilarious misunderstanding about what a link was (he expressed a concern that too many people would link to his web page and cause a short circuit). I went to tell my mom so we could both laugh about it, but first I quizzed her to make sure she knew what a link was.

I asked something along the lines of “If I told you Google links to CNN, would you know what that meant?”

A google is a thing that appears there and you click it and it does something, whether you want it to or not.

She stopped to tell me to stop making that face. I didn’t catch what she said when she continued because I was trying to keep a straight face.

Random Blogroll Category v1.5.1

Monday, June 28th, 2010

I just committed a minor revision to my WordPress plugin Random Blogroll Category. The line that was supposed to remove an extraneous HTML tag was completely wrong. The latest version will put out valid HTML.

It’s worth noting that I have no further plans for developing this plugin unless it is broken by a future WordPress update.
