Buckshot

  • How is it that automattic can complain about users not knowing the difference between their commercial service, and the open source blogging tool, when they continue to blur and erase the line themselves? and if we assume that it’s not a mistake, and they meant to use their 2nd most popular plugin to advertise wordpress.com in user’s sidebars, wouldn’t that contradict Matt’s whining about PPP and TLA?
  • Reverend Ted has novell’s jab at the mac vs. pc ads. Novell continues to distance themselves from other linuxes (linuxi?) by not taking a whiny nerd-boy stab at apple, but actually shifting the discussion. making linux a woman makes apple immediately look sexist. remember the one woman in the mac ads? she was a peripheral(second class citizen much?) and involved in substantial confusion between networks and peripherals (typical of most mac fanboys, in my experience).
  • i don’t know what these stats are. or why they keep showing up in my dashboard. they could be my overall stats if the years were different.
  • I really like the ideas forum. as much as opensearch and noindex could be theme competencies, they make more sense as wordpress core competencies. i really don’t want to be responsible for correctly addressing introspection.
  • this slide is brilliant. yet another reason i love last.fm. i’m not quite sure why that woman has become such a “receptacle for people’s rage” (the wifest’s words).  lettting that sort of slander be a defining characteristic of last.fm’s service was bringing them down.
  • i have a twitter page now, but no use for it.  other than keeping track of the wordpress.com servers.
  • i’m using mr. messina’s filigree graphic everywhere, because it’s so easy to color.  i need to find a GPL replacement for it, or draw my own, though.  GPL graphics are damn hard to find.

    Can’t believe you have those meaningless stats in your dashboard. Is it beyond wp.com to put a little more thought into them so they’d be useful?

    it’s just a glitch. i’m mainly just curious as to what they mean. they disappeared when i refreshed the page (although they appeared on multiple occasions.

    yeah, it’s just boggling that it’s been broken this long. the number of people asking in the wrong forums is just sad.
