July 8, 2010

I’ll be posting this to the Yahoo developer blog, right after I get done proofreading it, in response to their “Mybloglog?” post. Yes, that’s its title, and the question mark seems fitting. My comment: “Is it, indeed, closing down?” Today, it doesn’t seem to be, but somebody does seem to want to kill it. Remember […]

Some of you might have noticed that the same photograph by Kymberly Janisch has graced the homepage for this group for some time, and maybe wondered if that was fair.

Rebuttal to some Yelp Bashing

Comments Off

Note: I’ve deleted a small amount of profanity that was present in the material I’ve quoted, replacing it with roughly synonymous nonprofanity in parantheses, because I’ve decided to move toward making my own pages a little more family friendly.

Vox / How does one add a photo to a group?

September 19, 2009

Comments Off

Yes, it’s a general question, but looking in the help center, I found nothing very helpful, and I’ve already burned away more than an hour on this nonsense.
