Mørning worldwide selfisolators,
first and only item on the list in today’s corona diary is the total disappearance of yesterday’s entry. I was in the middle of adding a lot of seal photos for a mildly amusing picture story as companion piece to my Sparky Linux news. You know the one you couldn’t see the pictures because the links that I set are only showing on my personal machine. 🙂
And while that’s already bad enough, in the middle of my editing process, trying to make the post much better … suddenly all was gone. Not just the newly uploaded pics but everything else as well! 😮
Can you even imagine how much I love love love WordPress now?
Those silly fukkaz, first ruin everybody’s blogging experience with their superbly stupid Gutenberg editor, which they will force on us soon anyway, and now they can’t even maintain a simple customer’s database!
WTF? No, really, what the actual fuck? Is that the revenge of WP’s Happinses Engineers, just because we – their loyal paying customers – aren’t happy with their brainfarty new editor thingie. The whole shit looks like cobbled together by a bunch of wilful 3 y/o. And their system management isn’t the tiniest bit more grown-up neither.
I’m still looking for a new blog system but can’t find anything even close to WP’s appeal.
Oh, also, don’t you have a feeling the text font is smaller than usual? At least on my side it looks like, during writing and editing it’s considerably smaller:
But that’s my problem, not yours. I bet most of you have your own problems. First and foremost with this new situation of a worldwide pandemic, lockdown, loss of jobs and all the shitty shit. And please bellieve me that I’m very sorry that I cannot help you out. All I can do is trying to amuse you with more or less amusing photo-stories about Seals acting like Linux distros … and grandiously failing in that regard. 😦
Still, if you’re looking for a fairly unspectacular Linux workhorse distro that never needs any attention but just werkz, do yourself a favour and download the latest very new version of Sparky Linux … and be happy ever after.
Will it make you the coolest boy or gurl in class? Naaw, far from. We leave that honour for the cool Archy kidz with all their tattoos and blue hairs and bloody noses and nervous ticks and drug problems. But you’ll be the certified nerd! Quietly organizing your file system in true OCD style, and being generally awkward and super duper busy. And that is something, is it not? At least you’re the type of nerd that doesn’t even notice the lockdown very much. You’d be sitting at home, playing with your Linux anyway.
Looksie the video:
So. Now you’re at least a tiny bit more up-to-date with your editrix. All that remains for me to say is …
Stay happy and heathy, keep your social distance, don’t give free hugs to strangers, and no 5 dollar deluxe hugs neither. Wash your hands, use lots of sanitizer and be happy at home! The more of us are breaking the curfew for no real reason, and the more often we do it, the more people will die. It’s a simple math equation.
