Sick!
Oct 28th, 2010 by Babs

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve written a full post. Today I am sick with a cold Glenn gave me so I’m taking the day off and parking my ass in front of my computer screen. :)

I’ve once again commenced work on the looong overdue task of removing the not-so-needed tags. I currently have so many that a number of them aren’t showing up in the list in the sidebar. It’s fun rereading old posts to determine what tags are truly necessary. After I’m done with that I may go in and finish removing all the extra comments that I had meant to take out well over a year ago. Yeah, I suck at site maintenance these days.

Because it’s also craft fair season I’ve been busy pumping up my stock. As a result I’ve been forced to cut back on my gaming time. Cafe World, which can easily eat up 2-3 hours of my day, was the first to be put on hold. I’ve also had to cut back on KotW though I am prepared to jump back in, in the near future. Don has been talking about resetting the game and putting a 50 member cap on all alliances. As much as I love being a Viking I have always wanted to create my own alliance. Plus, I can’t see how Vikings is going to pare a 80+ member alliance down to 50 without losing active players. So I decided the reset was a sign and will not be returning to Vikings after the reset (at least not immediately). I think I may have upset a few of my friends with this decision but it’s something I need to do. I will still be a Viking and actively play as such until the reset. I also won’t promote my new alliance until then (aside from giving info to inquiring minds walling me). There isn’t much more I can do to set their minds at ease. Sorry. :( BTW, if you’re a KotW player, and don’t already know about it, check out The Record. Lots of good stuff about the community that makes up the game.

The Teen is enjoying his new school. I had to deal with WPS, however, because the SPED dept. forgot to let the rest of the program know that he wasn’t going to the public high school. This week he’s in his first choice of vocations — auto mechanics. He’s loving it! Now if only we can do something about the homework. :P

Ben is still at Target. Recently he’s been bringing over a new friend. It’s a girl, but not his girlfriend. He’s an adult so it’s none of my business.

Glenn has been Glenn. His court case is over. He got 6 months probation and a $300 fine. He also has to participate in a 42-week anger management/abuse program per order of DCF. Every Thursday I get to listen to him get himself “psyched up” for the program. *rolls eyes* Unfortunately he is also on Administrative Leave while the Town decides whether he’s worth the hassle of keeping, so I have to deal with him nearly 24/7. Somebody please hire me now!!!!!!

So that’s my current life, in a nutshell. Yay!

Still Weeding
Aug 10th, 2009 by Babs

Still cleaning out the extra comments. I hope I’m not breaking the threads. :) I’ve got three copies of each comment so I’ve been systematically removing the last two but WordPress has a habit of switching the order of things around. If I’m lucky things will remain intact. I’m now down to 98 pages of comments, from 116.

While skimming through the comments I came across this post. I’m now beginning to wonder if Hollywood has been reading my blog. :) It’s just too weird.

Oh, and since I had to endure the pain and suffering of deleting two copies of this photo, I’m going to post it here, again. Just because I can.

Import Done. Now to Clean Up.
Aug 9th, 2009 by Babs

<div class=\"pavatar\">Import Done. Now to Clean Up.</div>

I finished importing all of my LiveJournal posts into my WordPress blog. Hey, if Blog Metrics says I’ve been blogging for 8+ years I might as well have something to show for it, right?

Anyway, in addition to forgetting to turn off the reposting plugins the first time around, I also forgot to have WP password protect all of my “Friends Only” posts. So I’ve been going through, deleting the comment-less reposts, password protecting the ones with comments made by those who are concerned about being read publically, and deleting all of the duplicate comments. Judging by the fact that I have 921 posts and 2,315 comments I think I still have a number of duplicate comments to remove. Funny how the importer can see duplicate posts but not duplicate comments. *shrugs* At least I got the comments, though, something I couldn’t do a year ago when I tried to import LJ to Insane Journal.

In other news, I finally found an old friend from high school on Facebook. Or, more accurately, he found me. I’ve been trying to track him down for quite some time, with no luck, so I’m really excited to see him again. Hopefully we can continue to make mischief together, online. *weg*
