Tags and clouds

November 17th, 2008

WordPress, the software we use here, recently added support for tags. I always hoped to be able to assign more attributes and provide links to related entries. This is now possible thanks to great efforts of the WordPress community

During the last weeks I copied my tags from my old and abandoned system. Now, about half of the entries have tags, and also the tag cloud is growing. Within the next weeks I will add tags to the rest of the entries.

Since visitors keep commenting on a bunch of older posts (thanks folks), a list of all recent comments has eventually been added. Please find them on the sidebar below the categories.

By the way, if you use RSS feeds there is one for comments, too.

Serious parody

September 14th, 2007

rattus rattus is not getting tired of adding to his life (and blog) this most serious statement:

Parody! Not to be taken seriously!

ik (anyway wittily) asked:

Is it a parody that you are not to be taken seriously or are you a parody which is not to be taken seriously or….? :))

After all, the parody is parody. — Not just trivially, also seriously.
Of course, the phrase is part of the parody — and as such — it is seriously not to be taken seriously either.

Serious as in law suit or getting shot. As the man, who signed many of his illustrations with this very phrase, knew so well.

What’s really wrong with most people is hey take life too seriously.
Larry Flynt

If this is part of your life (don’t) take it too seriously. Or be wrong.

This blog ain’t dead

September 12th, 2007

I am not into telling the future (please note the nicely hidden self-contradictory aspect of this statement; thanks) but this blog ain’t dead.

Yet. ;-)

Since a few days, someone (or maybe not) repeatedly tries to load a page from this blog’s server with the address thisdoesnotexistahaha.

Apparently a lying liar.

Hey, lying surfer, you are welcome!
