So, I haven’t posted in a while, mostly due to the entire “starting a new job” situation, which, while financially more comfortable than my previous freelance gig, is a lot more 9-to-5 and tends to preclude midday bloggery.

Now that I’m more-or-less settling in and have found the boom-and-bust rhythm of work, blogging should recommence apace. At some point, I should probably discuss both Eureka Seven AO and Robotics;Notes, but mostly, I’m just contending with Twitter being a walled-garden ecology and basically cutting off the functionality of a lot of interesting web-apps.

Mostly, I’m missing ITTT‘s ability to capture twitter RT’s with links and then push those tweets to my blog, so I don’t have to slog through a mountain of my old tweets just to find the interesting links (ie, see the Interesting Links tab above, under the random imagebanner). Also, Twitter Tools seems to be missing my last two weeks worth of posts, which is kind of annoying, and the new implementation of Social for WordPress requires some CSS styling before I’ll be happy with its presence on numenor.ca.

But, essentially, for the handful of you out there still visiting this site on occasion, I’m back to (semi) regular blogging.

Since I’m occasionally slow on the uptake, I’ve been using my webcomics page to surf the stuff I normally read… and then manually enter the URLs for sites that I hadn’t included on the linklist. When the stupidity of this set in, I decided a page repair was in order, so voila, updates.

Some comics had shut down — like Minus (beautiful and frightening as it was), and others had ended before I even had a chance to get into them serially, such as Riceboy, which some folks on the /co subforum had pointed me out to ages ago but, as usual, I was slow on the follow-up.

At least Gunnerkrigg Court is still running, and I finally got around to linking some ALL TIME SMASH HITS like Awkward Zombie and Wonderella. My comics life is complete. Or would be if the guy who updates Gone With the Blastwave would do so more often than semi-annually.

Man, mucking around with WordPress’ page navigation functions is awfully annoying; it works when I’m using any other template apart from the one I’ve customized, so it’s either that I’m missing a template to refer to, or I’ve misunderstood something fundamental. Or maybe I shouldn’t be banging around under the hood at these hours.

4:22 AM — now that pagination and formatting for said pagination is working, I seem to have broken the Twitter feed. Bleh. Never was a title so prophetic…

That might take a little longer than I thought. Multi-posts are somehow breaking the positioning of the sidebar. Man, my CSS is dusty; time to go over this stylesheet with a fine-toothed comb….

It’s been three years and a bit since I last shook the dust off this site; I’ve gone on extended hiatus before, but never for this long. I’m still in the process of reconfiguring everything; moving the templates and styles from the old Movable Type installation to the new WordPress system has been an interesting experience, but once I get the last few pages set up, numenor.ca will be up and running again. Check back in… oh, a day or so.
