There I was, happily about to doze off when I noticed something.
Now yesterday was a hectic day of frantic succumbing to the Black Dog which amongst other things led to a somewhat restless night, so the one thing I needed today was a chance to doze. It was not supposed to be a day where I would have to think.
However, there it was, staring me in the face. Martin Scriblerus was looking distinctly wrong.
I remember setting all those images so they neatly fitted into their boxes yet there suddenly seemed to be a lopsided look to them. I don’t like lopsided. It upsets me.
Now the site itself hasn’t changed for a very long time, so any old backup should do the trick. I restored a backup from the first of the month. Bugger, but that didn’t make a difference. So I tried one from the beginning of June, then May then fuckit January. Nothing made any difference. The site had decided to become lopsided and lopsided it stubbornly stayed.
I made a copy on my laptop. That was fucking lopsided too. Shit. At least I could screw around with it and it wouldn’t matter if it broke completely.
I found the problem. I could say that it was my vast intuitive powers that did the trick, but I have to confess it was purely by accident – a number was missing. In all the millions if words and numbers that make up a website, just one fucking number was enough to screw everything up
I don’t know how or why, or even when it went missing but it’s back now and the site has lost its lopsidedness.
If anyone is interested, the number is 1100.
