My blog did a dump on the carpet — 17 Comments

  1. I love your writing style. I lost mine somewhere between training to be a journalist and becoming a corporate manager. Sigh! Have set off on the path to finding out whether I can write again. Stuff like yours puts a smile of my face and gives me hope. Thank you, truly. And please ramble on! 🙂

  2. Flirty – I don’t know. It was in Latin. And I had to translate it to UTF-8 [whatever the hell that is]. I didn’t understand a word of it. Does The Da Vinci Code have lots of pictures?

    Lost Writer – Welcome!! I nearly deleted your comment because I’m embarrassed. Thanks. And there’s no such thing as a lost writer – just a writer who is resting [or who has lost the plot?].

  3. Grandad,

    Thank you for this explanation.

    It explains how Isitjustme’s comments about landfill in Co Galway have become associated with English Mum’s comments about her smalls and odd blokes in Cavan. Or is that just an exercise in magical realism?

  4. Ian – That is the weird and wonderful world of Head Rambles. Things get mixed up here of their own accord.

  5. Grandad,
    Are you sure you got the PHP bearings back in correctly? If you have one spinning forward and one turning backwards there is no end of problems that will occur. Also did you fill the XML overflow tank? I forgot that once and let me tell you, my blog didn’t get very far before all the comments got wrapped around the secondary drive chains. One last thing, if you had your code out and it was dripping bits on the carpet you might have some dust and dog hair in the GUI valves and I don’t have to tell you what that can do to your left hand keyboard drivers!

  6. I’ve gone through everything at my place and I don’t appear to have any of your missing bits or comments. If I do find something I’ll be sure to give it a sandwich and a pat and send it on it’s way.

    I thought your site here was choking a bit over the past couple of weeks or so but I was sure you’d get to it eventually. And I know dogs might be eager to lend a helping hand but more often than not, for all their enthusiasm, I find them to be all paws when it comes to server work.

  7. Brianf – I’m fairly sure I got the PHP bearings right, but I’m not too sure about my SQL grommet. I may have that in upside-down. Should I be worried?

    Kirk M – I have a sneaky feeling I may have to take the back off again. It’s still running very slowly. Do you think I should change the constant velocity bearings?

  8. Yeah, you might also want to try recalibrating the starboard power coupling’s flow lines and giving the flux chamber plates a right good polishing.

    If that doesn’t work then you might try checking the main computer core. Those databases always get choked up this time of the year.

  9. I love the images in this post. I want to say something more intelligent than this, but sadly, I’ve got nothing!

  10. Kirk M – I’ll just give it a kick. That usually works.

    J A – Intelligence is a foreign substance around here.

  11. You may want to check the muffler bearings too. The things you hear when those start to go out.

  12. Scott – The one thing about it is that it’s quiet. Usually.

    Welcome O’C [and howya F!] – It was a database dump, not a doggie dump. They smell different. And at 157Mb it was a big pile!
