On the subject of not bringing subjects up

I think I am beginning to understand why so many people who have online journals or weblogs only post brief messages. Or perhaps I am just beginning to do so. I think other people may do it because they only have a little to say. I find that I am censoring myself. Whether this is because I don’t want what I have to say to be public knowledge (a condition I do not condone; I do not truly believe that privacy exists, so why do I still want to guard mine?) or because I worry that when I post too long a comment, no one reads it, the result is the same, and it often turns out to be no posts at all.

I am doing my best to add at least short posts, but I have been making myself so busy lately that I have been kept from creating any really long posts. Soon though, I will find myself in a new form of asceticism where I cannot afford to do much more than sit around in front of my computer typing long messages out into the internet about whatever is skipping across my mind.

I have many things to say. I will be right back to say them…

This Weblog’s fucking configuration

I have just had to re-do the configuration of the website to allow comments to be posted. I guess there is a problem with the way that I had things being addressed and I needed to change it to the old way and then re-build the entire site in order for it to work again. If you’ve wanted to post a comment recently but got an error like “No valid data was submitted” or something, please feel free to try again. Everything should be working fine now.

I’m working on it.

Marie, if you can see this, it means I’m working on getting this site up again soon.

Don’t despair.

I haven’t decided whether or not to put your content back up anywhere though. Same old complaint about not enough volume, I suppose.

Not that I’m setting a good example, but … It’s about to be a lot easier for everyone to submit content.

I just have to … learn how to code in perl.
