Housekeeping Note

Sniff Test

I am aware that the blogroll disappeared from the site (the info is still here on the dashboard, not to worry) along with other widgets. I have no idea why/what happened and I’m looking into restoring it.

Irony Alert: yesterday I listened to Bluegal and Driftglass’s “No Fair Remembering Stuff” podcast and it featured the infamous Blogroll Amnesty controversy of the early 2000s. I am not deleting the blogroll, I honestly have no idea what happened.

(Any fellow WordPress users out there who can walk me through Gutenberg to help me restore it? I’m baffled.)

WordPress works in mysterious ways, I suspect that they are changing stuff on the back end to force us in The Resistance to switch to the terrible Gutenberg interface.

UPDATE 1 : it is in the footer at the bottom of the page. Twice!

UPDATE 2: I think I restored everything to where they belong. But that was nuts.

    I listened yesterday too- it was most excellent. I’ve got to step up with some bux for DGBG because they really put the shoulder to the wheel and they never pass up a chance to talk about Steve Gilliard.

    I notice at some point you added “in memorium” to a few on the blogroll. Sorry to hear about whoever wrote Zaius Nation. I used to read it years ago, and noticed when it stopped being updated, but I never knew why.

      Oh, I hear from Zaius now and then. I meant that the blog (in this case) is dead. I refuse to remove some of them from the blog roll because they were friends or important to me in some way.

        We met in person years ago; Dr. Zaius is a really great guy (and funny as hell). I wish the big ape would kickstart Zaius Nation again (he has considered it), but until he does I’m keeping it in memorium in the blogroll.

        When/if we talk next, I’ll pass your regards.

      Also enjoyed Zaius Nation, used to be part of my daily rounds.

      TMcC: Can I play the piano any more?

      DrZ: Of course you can!

      TMcC: Well, I couldn’t before!!
