Ghosts in the machine

OK, folks, bear with me here — the WordPress install on this site is getting buggier by the moment, like a GI’s skivvies in a Thai whorehouse, and I may have to attempt a software update or a shift to a new hosting provider.

I’ve backed up the database and the entire WP folder, and the automatic update is just sitting there in the admin tool, winking frantically at me like a strumpet with a crack habit. But the thing is, I have a clusterfuck with the VeloFolks tomorrow and a visitation by the mom-in-law on Thursday and a BRAIN deadline on Friday and the Tour de France on Saturday.

So what I’m sayin’ is, don’t be surprised by a bit of weirdness — like comments shutting themselves off without authorization from the Home Office — and a lot of radio silence in the next few days. It ain’t that I don’t love youse, y’crazy bastids, youse.

If the whole shebang should blow up in my face, look for me at Mad Blog Media (The Freeware Edition) until the dust settles. Peace out.

    Site does seem a little temperamental lately. Given that you are dealing with VN, BRAIN, Mom, and LeTour, we won’t add to your stress levels.

    “Don’t be surprised by a bit of weirdness,” he says.

    And in unison, the choir responds, “How would we tell the difference?”

    A work conference, MIL, and writing deadline, back-to-back-to-back? Guess I’ll be getting my affairs in order, because it sounds like once the fourth of the Four Horsemen shows up, we can get on with the big Judgement.

    Just for fun – Eddy Merckx has a message for Lance Armstrong (Tour de France 2010) http://youtu.be/-Mfb1kej3xM .
    I’m pulling for Andy Shleck myself, wouldn’t that be fun if he gets podium?
