I had come across references to this Matthew Fox dude’s Twenty-Two Questions for Pope Benedict XVI here and there on religious-focused blogs, but I hadn’t really paid attention. Then a mention of them appeared here in a post about goofy beret-wearing (hey Gramps, clue time: it’s not 1969 anymore, you just look like an idiot), […]

All of them “sucker.” Now I have had to unload the Gravatar image plugin. The Gravatar hosting folks (I guess — it certainly wasn’t me) decided to be cute and make a default image (saying “gravatar” in tiny little letters) for people who comment here who don’t have gravatar icons of their own.

I will administer more wine (Fetzer Gewuerztraminer, if you must know). That will cure it. Or at least make it matter less.
I’ve been thinking a lot the past few weeks about ditching trackback on all my sites. I have my reasons; they are as follows: when the whole site was taken down not too long ago, the reason was an attack by trackback spammers; I am still finding a zillion spams in the database offering sites […]
