Saturday Thread

listener painted this Kitty to surprise her granddaughters
and to cheer any bloggers who visit.

All you cool cats heading to Deanfest (or already there), please remember to get some sleep and eat reasonably well in addition to choosing which jean jacket to pack (or wear).  You matter and you rock (the vote)!   Have fun and remember to come by HEP and post all about the doings for we old folks at home!

Update on comments

At some point yesterday, Haloscan commenting started "working" again, at least in a limited capacity. Meaning, at least it was possible to get into a comment thread, and there was a possibility of posting, but as many of you discovered, the software was rather tempermental.

In addition to that bug, if you go to the HEP comments blog (at least as of this writing), it doesn't show the number of comments in a thread. Until the number of comments starts showing again, I am unable to create a new comment thread. Because what I need to do to actually make a new comment thread is to publish a new post at that blog, and then grab the url of the little link that shows up saying "0 comments".

5:20 p.m. update--the comment thing seems to be better now, and I was able to add a new comment thread for Wednesday. No time to actually read comments though. Need to leave for campus.

Haloscan seems to be screwed up today, so I've temporarily enabled Blogger commenting.

Requesting assistance

First of all, you don't even want to know what an absurdly difficult it was just for me to get connected to the internet just now. But the bottom line is that I'm utterly out of time, and need to leave the library (and its baffling, maddening wireless connection) and head to campus. Please send me positive traffic vibes. Maybe we even need a candle page for me, with the intention that my head doesn't go all 'splody in the next couple weeks.

Anyway, it would be awesome if I could have a volunteer or two who had access to the HEP comments blog. That way someone other than me would have the capability to add a note of clarification about how the thing works. You don't need to be able to *generate* the comment links, but just to add a note of explanation for people who are confused.

Now I *really* need to get to campus.

Open thread with collie art

To show that we *do* indeed like dogs around here, and not just cats, I took a picture of my dog, Brady, this morning. But once I looked at the picture this evening, I realized that the picture was out of focus.

So I decided to just go with that theme, and took the picture into Photoshop to do some filter effects.

Off to spend some time with the family now.
