If you’re not living life on the edge, you’re taking up too much space.

I hate this

Sigh—I really didn’t mean to take over Planet Humbug. For some reason, the other aggregators that I’m aware of don’t seem to be regurgitating most of my old posts the way the Humbug one is doing. I have no idea which is wrong. And I certainly don’t understand why Planet Humbug shows all that stuff in random order. I guess I’ve learned that it’s unwise to “fix” blog bugs, and I think I’ve made a resolution never to do that again. One of these days, I’ll carry out my plan to move on from blosxom and I’ll have to figure out how to more-or-less preserve the old entries without flooding the universe with crap at the same time.

Of course, if somebody who has made the same mistake as I did actually found out how to fix it—without making things even worse—then I’d be happy to hear from you. Apologies to everybody who has a (new) reason to hate me.
