A month of journaling

Is this thing on? I think it's been nearly 2 years since I posted to my own journal, how pitiful. astolat and cesperanza are encouraging a retro journaling challenge. So I can blame them for adding boring electrons to the universe. What a relief.

I still like LJ very much, and I comment regularly. I don't get tumblr other than for eye candy, which I very much appreciate. What else is it for, really? I can't tell when it's cool to add a comment to someone's post. You see thousands of likes/reblogs with nary a comment to add to the discussion. Odd.

In happier news I found a php bug in a wordpress gallery plug-in that was affecting the Stargate Solutions site. It was accepted by the developers and will be in the next release. It's funny, I've written code that's used in air traffic control facilities, but I'm quite proud of my 1-line wordpress plug-in fix because it helped a bunch of regular people who were very frustrated.

I'm watching Longmire. It's cool, but sort of weird.

Tumblr is great for eye candy, which is fun, but I'm really missing lengthy discussions that are possible here. You can post text stuff there, but you can't really do a discussion. I do comment on some reblogs, but it's not the same.

I've been enjoying Longmire too. What do you think is weird about it?

I guess I find the rhythm sort of unusual. There often seems to be no resolution after a build-up and a big event. Or it resolves really quickly, like his daughter in the hospital. I also find Walt very hard to read. I'm sure that's true to the character, but I find I disengage emotionally when I don't see what the main character is thinking/feeling. Maybe I'm just not paying enough attention, ha.
