so yeah. apparently when you set up a subdomain with bluehost it IMMEDIATELYDONOTPASSGODONOTCOLLECT$200 deletes any CNAME records for said subdomain. odd, considering that you have to petition their support to even add CNAME records.
So no, i didn’t mean to move this blog off of wordpress.com (gratuitous link for people who meant to continue surfing their dashboard) right this very second, i was going to do it eventually. I was planning on giving mark & co. a little more time to take me out of the global tags. granted, i did already have a conversation to that effect:
Me: “I’M IN UR GLOBAL TAGS POSTIN DEM SEXY FOTOS”
Mark: “We’ll keep a close eye on that one, can’t trust one hippy let alone a whole bunch 🙂 ”
clearly, my continued obsession with icanhascheezburger is hampering my ability to communicate with anyone who is not inside my head.
does anyone else find this terribly ironic? especially given the problem of his microformats not being an open standard, i find it odd that chris wouldn’t hesitate to follow the party line.
apparently, domains are cheaper than candy. or owen’s got an in. or despite the absurdity of it all, he’s actually serious. given that the real announcement is that his wordpress importer for habari seems to have worked.
matt thinks he loves theme designers. it’s baffling to me, then, why he feels the need to keep changing the titles and descriptions of their themes, once they’re installed on wordpress.com.
the 281(3) incident (where he renamed it twenty-eight thirteen, despite it being a 3-column version of 281, which was named after paul’s mustang) was amusing, although i’m mystified as to why they’ve removed it. perhaps because it’s licensed as non-commercial, which wordpress certainly isn’t. but then, it’s built on top of GPL themes, so technically it can’t be non-commercial.
the best, though, is fauna. sometime recently, they changed the description to:
“A beautiful two-column theme with a gigantic flower header.” now, if you read joen’s description, it says
“A living Organism characterized by voluntary movement.” Flowers don’t move voluntarily. someone’s forgotten their biology. I also wonder why, if you’re going to change anything about the theme you wouldn’t add widgets. or, you know, updated it.
via the FAQ feed, i learn that I can now post daily motion videos. Not that this is a stunning revalation in and of itself, it’s the fourth such flash-based video that has its own posting mechanism on wordpress.com. but daily motion is one of the few that actually has a reasonable policy regarding adult content. since wordpress.com is a common carrier, that means it’s entirely in my hands whether i distribute porn on the internet or not. Gasp! Shock! Horror!.

i’ve been tagged by britgirl:
first line of the first post of each month for 2006:

It likes playing outside. I will carry out what and will play today. 11 alright, Mullenweig, you win. 12
that required a whole lot of trimming and fudging to keep from being completely boring 😉
and now, i’m off to prioritize dancing baby penguins
it’s too late for me, i’ve already got a myspace, and more friends than i actually talk to in meatspace, let alone myspace. but this is the best response to myspace, evar:
