What I Hated the Least Today 190/365: functions.php

The following applies to self-hosted WordPress sites and is of zero interest to WordPress-hosted bloggers. Or simply, it's of zero interest. It needs to be however recorded as a cautionary tale. I'll start with the moral: PHP is different from PhD and having the latter doesn't mean you qualify to mess with the former. Unless … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 190/365: functions.php

What I Hated the Least Today 186/365: Loyalty Cards

Inspired by this Rebekah's post, which was inspired by this my post (it's complicated), here's a follow-up on the (not so) thrilling subject of groceries and loyalty cards. I have quite a collection of them, against my better judgement. Most of them do very little, and what some of them do I don't even know. … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 186/365: Loyalty Cards

I failed, but it was a borderline fail: day one: was … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 173/365: Orange Is the New Black

What I Hated the Least Today 172/365: Not WYSIWYG

*Disclaimer: This post might give a misleading impression that it's informed. It's not.* I admit to writing this in the WordPress Visual Editor, which is a WYSIWYG editor. WYSIWYG is from What you see is what you get, which isn't entirely the case. While I'm usually quite happy not having to code when I write, occasionally I get fancy ideas … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 172/365: Not WYSIWYG

What I Hated the Least Today 150/365: Lifestyle

I'm scared of people who take a perfectly normal thing, like eating or exercising, and turn it into a whole lifestyle, so making it somewhat abnormal. The trouble is that people with a conscious lifestyle (orthodox yogis, vegetarians, non-gluten eaters, you name it) tend to spread their enlightenment like crusaders. I found myself very uplifted when … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 150/365: Lifestyle
