So, I decided to start paying attention to my website again, partly due to various conversations I've had lately, partly due to a wish to, well, have something I'm doing that I can, at least somewhat, point out to other people and be more, hey, I'm doing that.|
Was just briefly concerned that I had managed to nuke my blog in the process of updating WordPress, but no, this time it worked.
I've been wanting to get back to doing my blog (distinct from my journal, in that it's meant to be more considered stuff, more contenty even if you don't know me, kind of thing), and may in fact find it less tiresome now that I have come across the existence of the Bad Behaviour plugin, which I just installed. Hopefully my blog will generate more than just endless spam now.
(I blocked spam comments by requiring user registration to leave comments at all; this generated an endless wave of attempted spam user registrations. Depressing. I may alter comment settings now - not that it matters, since my blog, at present, is unread by anyone.)
Meanwhile, a conversation the other day, that went on being increasingly hilarious but I can't remember the rest:
Housemate.Dave (playing Fallout: New Vegas): I just assassinated the president with an orbital laser.
Me: You're a bad person.
Chas: And you should feel bad!
Dave: But it was awesome.
Direct quote: "Mental trauma can be just as debilitating as physical injury."|
This would be from Fallout: New Vegas.
( Potentially triggery explanation. )
